Sage Rountree Releases First Book of Yoga Routines for Athletes
Nationally known endurance sports coach and yoga instructor Sage Rountree has published the first book of yoga routines for athletes. The Athlete's Pocket Guide to Yoga: 50 Routines for Flexibility, Balance, and Focus offers runners, triathletes, and cyclists a convenient way to gain the benefits of yoga.
When endurance athletes attend yoga classes, they bring tight muscles and even tighter schedules. At the height of the season, athletes often disappear from the yoga studio, yet it is then that yoga can be most beneficial. The Athlete's Pocket Guide to Yoga makes it easy for athletes to continue reaping the benefits of yoga all year.
The Athlete's Pocket Guide to Yoga offers 50 simple yoga routines athletes can use every day. The book includes quick warm-ups and cool-downs, 20-minute flexibility routines to relieve muscle tightness, longer strength sessions for the off-season and base periods, focus exercises to sharpen mental toughness, and restorative routines to speed recovery.
Even without any yoga experience, readers will find The Athlete's Pocket Guide to Yoga simple to use. Each page presents full color photos of athletes demonstrating the poses in a routine. Rountree groups routines by their goals so that readers can quickly address common problem areas like a tight lower back or hamstrings. The Athlete's Pocket Guide to Yoga is spiral bound so that it lies flat, making it easy to refer to the photographs while practicing.
Careful consideration of the athlete's needs has earned Sage Rountree a committed following, and her newest book delivers a practical approach to yoga that will make good athletes better.
