While COVID-19 restriction are in place, we allow a maximum of 3 people per class. We live-stream our classes for our clients/members who prefer to join from home.
Live-streaming is done via Zoom, with crystal clear audio and video. Our experienced yoga instructor Adela Blevins provides live, individual guidance to each participant during the classes.
Research suggests that musculoskeletal pain is more common now than it was 40 years ago. This lends support to the concept that decreased activity and repetitive movements may lead to muscular dysfunction and ultimately injury.
Unfortunately, many training programs for conditioning the musculoskeletal system often neglect proper training guidelines and do not address potential muscle imbalances. This can result in a weakened structure and lead to injury.
Therefore, a training program must consider each person, their environment, and the tasks they will perform. Corrective exercises describe the systematic process for identifying neuromuscular dysfunction, developing a plan of action, and implementing an integrated corrective strategy and include four phases:
- Inhibitory techniques
- Lengthening techniques
- Activation techniques
- Integration techniques
At Escape Yoga, we provide programs to address the above issues, with proper training guidelines for a variety of clients and needs.
Yoga is a great way to improve an athlete's balance, agility, endurance, core strength and overall strength.
Football players, runners, basketball players, climbers and athletes of all sports can enjoy the loosening of muscles, enhanced flexibility and increased range of motion through yoga.
Most importantly, yoga reduces an athlete's risk of injury. Most athletes will experience shin splints, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis (inflation or stiffness of the tendon), muscle pull or strain at one point during training or competition. Yoga will minimize the chances of these kinds of trauma in the body.

Focusing inward during yoga practice helps you be more satisfied with your body and less critical of it
Being more aware of your body carries over to mealtimes as you savor each bite or sip and notice how food tastes, smells, and feels in your mouth. Mindfulness through yoga can make you more sensitive to cues of hunger and fullness, which helps you develop a more positive relationship with food.
Practicing yoga a couple of times a week increases muscle strength and flexibility, boosts endurance, and tunes up your heart, lungs and blood vessels.
Yoga can help lower blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol, all of which are good for your heart and blood vessels.
