Virabhadrasana with Canisius College Griffins Baseball


I’ve been very fortunate instructing Yoga with the Canisius College Pitching Staff going into our 2nd year together. Coach Mike McRae is very successful and highly competitive which is clearly demonstrated by his forward thinking and inclusion of yoga for the team. In this shot we are working on Virabhadrasana II, AKA Warrior 2, which is a powerful posture that requires balance and concentration for both the mind and entire body.

I really enjoy working with the guys as they are a great bunch who take their sport and their yoga seriously. We work mostly on flexibility, balance, stress-relief, breath, mindfulness, and coordination but not so much on strength as they get plenty of that with their regular training.
