Yoga Style: Yoga for Athletes
Description: Kimberly Fowler's Yoga for Athletes® "No Chanting, No Granola, No Sanskrit"
If you've been curious about yoga, but are reluctant to take a class because you're not interested in a new religion or are intimidated by the pretzel stereotype then Kimberly Fowler's Yoga for Athletes® is the class for you. Fowler is the "anti-guru" on a mission to demystify the practice and offer it to the masses. She's passionate about yoga's benefits, but if you're looking for a spiritual teacher to tell you how to live your life... find someone else. "I want to empower my students to become their own teacher," she says. "I hope they leave my class feeling good about themselves and what they're capable of doing."
Fowler is the owner of YAS Yoga and Spinning Center, a successful studio in Venice California where she teaches Yoga for Athletes® and Spinning® classes daily. With decades of yoga and competitive experience, Fowler has created a class that reduces the risk of injury and enhances athletic performance. Yoga for Athletes® is a hybrid practice including elements of Iyengar, Ashtanga and Power yoga. Selected poses are sequenced to benefit the athletic body by focusing on the hips, hamstrings, core abdominals and upper body. "These are the areas that need attention, they are used and abused in sports," says Fowler.
Professional athletes come to her one-hour class regularly, and they attribute their best ever season to Fowler's yoga classes. They see Yoga for Athletes as a 'secret weapon' that keeps them one step ahead of their competition and off the disabled list. Results like this fulfill Fowler who continues to live the healing benefits of yoga. Just know before you show up that the word "can't" is not in her vocabulary. "Anything is possible if you believe in yourself," she says.
