Fascia is one of the most important and at the same time least understood tissue in the body. It is also one of the most overlooked aspects of athletic training and recovery.

Most athletes tend to focus only on muscles, and first when injury occurs and solutions are sought after, fascia becomes an important part.

Yin Yoga prolonges and reinforces the deep layers of fascia in the body, and is often known as “yoga for the joints”. It is an exceptionally beneficial practice for athletes, as Yin Yoga can improve both performance and help with recovery from a variety of perspectives.

Integrating Yin Yoga into the everyday life as an athlete is invaluable.

The Yin Yoga teacher training: The Fluid Athlete, is born out of my own life and experience as an athlete. It is also based on my work with athletes in many different sports, and my work with the Swedish Counter Terrorist Unit.

I´ve been educating yoga teachers in Yin Yoga in many years, focusing on anatomy and Chinese medicine. It is with great pleasure I present deepening studies in Yin Yoga focusing on the athlete´s body and mind.
