The principal of great performances, that of Athletes, Dancers, Musicians and Artists, is awareness. The ability to be AWARE during a performance is pure and free flowing creative expression. The practice of traditional Ashtanga Yoga as set out by late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of the KPJ Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India, is a “Master Key” to the cultivation of focused attention in action.

The practice of YOGA is the single most important tool to the MODERN ATHLETE.
The practice of traditional Ashtanga Yoga as a daily lifestyle is the most complete and balanced system in and of itself. When taking a look at repetitive motions during training, resting and performance, over time we begin to see a undenied relationship to the re-balancing of the Athlete with daily practice. The Athlete soon finds “ease” in any and all of the movements needed to perform to their highest abilities. The development and control of quality deep free breathing, lifting of the pelvic floor with a stable lower abdomin - Mula Bandha & Uddiyana Bandha and increasing the quality in which our feet touch the ground. Plus our ability to maintain “drishti” (visual focus).
This forms the foundation of “balance and freedom” in motion.
It is ancient science.
Athletes often already have a sense of “inner radar” to a range of degrees. Over time the Athlete will become very sensitive to the inner workings of his body, breath and mind. This will serve to decrease the amount of injuries that occur as well as increase the athletes recovery rate. The mind will sharpen to the task at hand as it has a sense of the present breath. As the individual transforms into a “lighter” athlete, it will allow the performer to reveal their greatest potential, complete freedom.
It is the intention of “Ashtanga For Athletes” to support and empower each performer for each performance. Mahalo to Sri K. Pattabhi Jois for spreading this tradition method of practice for the benefit of Athletes all over the World.
