Our students love MVP's
approach to learning

The Yoga For Athletes course has been an amazing addition to my teaching tool-box! I am excited to apply these principles to help athletes both on and off the field. I eagerly anticipate further exploration of yoga's transformative potential and am committed to sharing its benefits with fellow athletes.

Crystal C. 

The Yoga for Athletes course taught by Maire McGlasson was a well-organized course that served to enhance my prior training and certifications. My biggest takeaway was the section on load optimization. I found the examples for various athletes very helpful, especially when considering dynamic versus active movements.

Brenda D. 

Ultimately, this Yoga for Athletes course has given me the tools to move forward in what I have wanted to do for a long time and that is to help individual athletes. My takeaway is how we can introduce yoga via a warm up, mid week session, cool down or simply a meditation in smaller time frames ie. shortened sessions that are easily manageable for the athlete.I loved this course and it met all my expectations.

Betsy H. 

I found the Yoga for Athletes course quite informative and helpful for real life practice. I look forward to working with athletes to improve their wellbeing and performance, and to taking more of the MVP courses to enhance my teaching practice.

Jennifer C. 

This course has given me lots of tools to use with my clients, especially my athletes or more advanced clients. My biggest takeaways from this course is how to organize and integrate different aspects of yoga into an athletes schedule, this can make such a big impact in the athletes life and make their performance even better in their sport. Breath work can make such a big impact on performance and focus, and how different asanas can be used to compliment specific movement of sports.

In my journey towards earning my Yoga for Athletes certification, I have gained profound insights into the symbiotic relationship between breath, body connection, balance, mobility, and strength.

Your Instructor

Maire’s yoga journey began years ago, looking to connect with and discover her true self. Once she sat on a cushion and stood on a mat she knew this was where she was meant to be. Her asana practice changed over the years from high energy to mindful awareness. As her personal exploration of the sutras deepened, so did her desire to teach. 

Sharing her knowledge and love for yoga led her to complete several teacher trainings, Maire is an E-RYT 500 and an author of a 200hr YTT. Her students and fellow teachers enjoy the creativity and accessibility she brings to her teaching. 

Drawing from experience of the past 5 years, collaborating with athletes of all ages and skill levels, I have delivered sports-specific yoga in various settings, such as high school football fields, basketball courts, and track and field and volleyball courts. I am excited to share with you some of the strategies I have employed to harness the advantages of yoga for athletes.
