My Students

My swimmers are athletes who need yoga tools to help them achieve and maintain conditioning. All of the students in my school receive free breakfast and lunch. For most of my kids, swimming is a new sport for them and they are eager to learn. Part of that requires the unique conditioning necessary for swimming - core strength.

My Project

My swimmers work hard in the pool and out. However, since we do not have our own facilities at the school, there are times we cannot get to the pool, nor can we have any preseason workouts. Because of this, it is imperative we have other core conditioning activities that will help prepare and maintain the fitness of my swimmers. Yoga provides the best core conditioning and stretching that is optimal for swimmers.

Yoga can provide total body fitness and encourage the lengthening of muscles that is so beneficial for swimmers.

My students are excited to expand their conditioning experience with yoga, but attempting poses on the concrete floor is challenging. Their feet slide, their knees hurt, and they have difficulty maintaining the balance many of the poses require. Yoga mats will make the kids more comfortable and more able to fully focus on the poses. The items in the sets I am requesting include 24 yoga mats, yoga blocks, and stretching straps. This is the perfect combination to help increase flexibility and core strength for my team.
