About Swim Bike Run Yoga
I’m Kate Taylor, a British Triathlon Coach and a Certified IRONMAN Coach as well as a Sports Specialist Yoga Alliance Professionals Yoga Teacher.
My intention with this site and through my yoga teaching is to inform you about what is happening in some yoga postures which will be of benefit to you as an individual and as a triathlete. I want you to be able to discern what of yoga is useful to you and what is not. By being able to understand what yoga your body needs, you will be able to easily include yoga in your training. As you will know from other aspects of triathlon training, getting the frequency and duration of training for each discipline right is key, as is consistency. To be able to do 15-30 minutes of the yoga you need every other day will benefit you much more than going to a class once a week or once a fortnight doing yoga in a general class.
You will be able to do what you do at home or work, fitting a session in at a time which also allows you to do any other training that day. This site will give you information about some of the key postures and movements of yoga and their benefits and also gives some examples of sequences. Each posture and sequence described with anatomical cues to help you ensure that you are using the muscles which should be working in the posture.
