I wear lots of hats: doctor of physical therapy/physiotherapy, strength & conditioning coach, weightlifting coach, weightlifting athlete.
As a physio and coach, I love the JOGA system for my athletes. Many of them think they need to be more flexible and try to achieve that with random mobility programs and yoga classes. Joga has been designed with the athlete in mind and gives them the whys and hows to achieve the mobility, balance, and control they’re looking for. It has been so complimentary to my athletes’ programs, and they love seeing the results!
As a competitive weightlifter, I use JOGA as my own active recovery and as a workout when I need something low impact but still challenging. I feel more controlled in my movement and have more body awareness and control under heavyweight. When the slightest shift forward or backward can make or break a lift, this becomes so important!
I will always recommend Joga to anyone who moves and wants an activity that is high-intensity, low-impact, and improves performance on and off the field.
“JOGA is a fun way for me to engage and focus on muscles I don’t typically remember to utilize when engaging in normal yoga practices. I don’t think I’ve ever sweat so much during a yoga class, and can’t wait to continue. Rena’s knowledge of body movement and mobility was on point. She was able to correct me using cues that were easy to follow and without having to lay a finger on me or having me feel like a complete oaf.”
“I used to only do hot yoga because I was craving an intense workout that also built flexibility. However after overextending myself in hot yoga/not seeing any results I stopped doing yoga all together. Picking up JOGA has been wonderful for me. It’s an opportunity to improve my mind-body connection which is essential as an athlete, especially now given with social distancing I cannot play my sport. JOGA helps me access my athlete mindset while building strength and increasing flexibility.”
“JOGA once a week has become part of my routine during quarantine and the pandemic. Now that I am back at practice again, I feel like all the core work we've done in JOGA has translated into better, stronger throws, and faster recovery. ”
