Yoga for athletes is specifically designed to complement your other workouts such as weight lifting, running, boot camping, rock climbing, sports, or crossfit. Not every type of yoga fits the needs and demands of the fitness-focused. Some types of yoga can actually do more harm than good.
If you’re an active fitness enthusiast already working out regularly, but looking for a type of yoga to help you get better at what you’re already doing, then you fit into the Yoga for Athletes path. You’re most likely already pretty strong, but you want to get stronger, and you’re looking for a fitness-focused, results-driven type of yoga to help you get there.

What specific workouts should you focus on in the Workout Library?
I recommend restorative yoga for days after your more intense workouts (yoga or otherwise), and yoga workouts the day before or after normal training days. (If you’re in the Workout Library, use the search filters to find workouts focused on “mobility”, “balance”, and “restorative”.)
What other workouts / types of exercises should this person be doing?
- In addition to your yoga programming, I recommend doing at least 2 strength training workouts and two 20-minute cardio workouts every week.
- Whatever you are doing, make sure that you are also incorporating pulling exercises into your workout routine at least 2x per week. You can use the Poses, Tutorials, and More section in the Members’ Area to learn how to implement pulling exercises into your training schedule.
