As a former ski racer who has remained physically active through a range of outdoor sports, I wanted the athlete’s perspective to be a core component of Artemis Yoga’s DNA when we opened our yoga center last December.
Many of Artemis Yoga’s students are working professionals in a range of fields who are either former high school or college athletes. Other students have discovered a passion for triathlons, road racing, trail running, rowing, cycling or swimming in their 20’s, 30’s or 40’s.
In addition, our students are seeking work-life balance, focus and mindfulness in a professional world that has stretched “working hours” into the evening and weekends. As a former software product marketing professional in Silicon Valley and Boston, I know first-hand the stresses that arise when one seeks to balance a high-performance work environment, family, friends and a commitment to physical fitness.
We have developed a curriculum and a specific set of classes for people like you. You work hard in a range of professional roles, value work-life balance and want to gain the benefits of cross-training, focus and mindfulness that can be achieved through the practice of yoga. We make it easy for you to get started by keeping our yoga center and classes welcoming and low-ego for those who are new to yoga as well as for those who are more experienced in their yoga practice.
I am proud of our experienced and friendly yoga instructor team, which includes former college varsity soccer, basketball, track and volleyball athletes as well as current college varsity coaches. Several of our instructors are also active runners, swimmers, cyclists, soccer players and skiers.
Over the past year, Artemis Yoga has had the opportunity to develop its expertise in yoga as a complement to training for younger athletes through our yoga series with Boston College varsity women’s soccer coach Alison Foley, aptly named Soccer on the Mat™. We have also provided a customized series of off-season yoga classes to women’s college teams and local high school soccer teams and lacrosse teams with our Yoga for Teams program.
We are now expanding the Artemis Yoga for Athletes™ curriculum to specifically provide classes on Mondays & Wednesdays at 5:45pm to working professionals who have a passion for running, cycling, swimming, golf and other sports. We are excited to help our students complement their training regimes – from triathlon preparation to improving how one feels on more casual weekend runs.
In addition to improving flexibility, balance, and core strength, we help our students improve focus and mindfulness. Focus and “living in the moment” are important to athletes in their sports as well as at work and at home. Our goal is that Artemis’ yoga and mindfulness classes will improve your athletic performance, focus and overall mental sharpness.
We invite you to come by and give Artemis Yoga for Athletes™ a try! You can check them out on the schedule on Mondays & Wednesdays @ 5:45pm. You may also find that our traditional yoga classes and mindfulness classes are a fit for you before work, over lunch, after work and on weekends.
