Yoga & Pilates for Athletics

From high school programs to professional athletics; teams, players and coaches are seeing major benefits from Yoga & Pilates. Body Mind & Core owner, Natalie Hayden, has worked with top ranked football programs, basketball programs, Nascar drivers and Heisman Trophy candidates to improve performance and durability. Yoga and Pilates can help athletes in the following ways.
