WHY I CHOSE JOGA

MY JOGA
STORY

Throughout my years being trained as an athlete and an aerial cirque artist, when it came down to strength and conditioning, almost no coach could properly explain why we were doing what we were doing, and there was never any talk about mental health/mindfulness. That’s what makes JOGA so special − every component of the system has a distinctive purpose to elevate an athlete’s game and career. It’s not a guessing game for the athletes as to why they are doing what they are doing in JOGA. The answer isn’t just “Oh this is good for cardio” or “This benefits your abs”. We talk about things like joint mobility and stability, developing neural pathways that make sense for an athlete’s kinetic environment and so much more. The philosophy behind JOGA, the depth to the system and the tailoring to an athlete’s biomechanics is what I was so drawn to. Every part of me felt like this is where I needed to be when I discovered JOGA. I wanted to be a coach more than anything.

IT’S A GAME CHANGER

JOGA WORKS

The first time it really hit me how JOGA benefits an athlete was when I first got the opportunity to train an injured professional basketball player after watching Jana Webb train him. The development from week-to-week in his recovery and his progress in the JOGA program was incredible. Seeing his development and his enthusiasm about how JOGA has helped him was really impactful for me. I was so proud of him and it just solidified that this is what I am meant to do for the rest of my life − JOGA is a game changer for athletes and I want to be a game changer. I want to help athletes be as successful as possible playing the sport that they love for as long as they can.

ALL AGES, ALL LEVELS

MAKING THE
CONNECTION

One of my favourite parts of coaching JOGA is when athletes start to truly understand how JOGA will benefit them and share their enthusiasm. At one Hockey Training Camp, I had a group of ten-year old’s who vocalized their own understanding of the application of JOGA to hockey. They got excited about certain movements as they started to really grasp the purpose of this movement system. To see kids at a young age listening, focusing, understanding, making their own connections and then telling me why they want to do JOGA − it is so rewarding and makes me so proud to be a JOGA coach.
