Athletes give Yoga the thumbs up

Yoga for cross-training? It's always a yes! As their official exercise partner, we recently invited members of the DHL Stormers and the Cape Town City Football Club for a Yoga experience at Virgin Active Point so they could feel the benefits of adding Yoga to their cross-training regime.   

Thabo Nodada, Tashreeq Morris, Shane Roberts, Douglas Mapfumo, Mnombo Zwelendaba, Ali Vermaak, Kade Wolhuter and Keke Morabe joined Virgin Active Yoga instructor, Lee-Ann Elliot as she put the athletes through their paces and introduced them to Yoga at Virgin Active and how it can be used as a tool to boost performance and aid recovery.

If you'd like to find out how Yoga can make you a better athlete, please come and try a Yoga class in club. We've also got loads of online classes available so you can get a feel for each style in the comfort of your own home. 

A huge thanks to all the players, we hope you enjoyed the experience as much as we did.
