Former wrestling legend, yoga expert gives the boys in blue a new position to try.
Toronto, ON, November 4, 2009 /TrishStratus.com/ – Former WWE Champion Trish Stratus continues her journey from the wrestling mat to the yoga mat as she sets out to spread the word on the benefits of yoga. As a certified yoga instructor and proprietor of Stratusphere Yoga Studio in Vaughan, Ontario, Stratus proves that yoga is for everyone, especially athletes.
Earlier this year Stratus developed a custom yoga sequence for golfers and in a partnership with Callaway Golf, hit the links and saw golfers across Ontario take their game out of the ‘stratusphere’.
Stratus puts the Toronto Maple Leafs through some poses to demonstrate how a yoga practice facilitates the mind-body connection and will improve flexibility, core strength, balance and stamina. Continued practice will also develop breathing techniques that can be instrumental in reducing performance anxiety and dramatically improve focus and concentration.
WHAT: Trish Stratus will put the Toronto Maple Leafs through a series of yoga poses.
