The Alpena Warriors Girls Ice Hockey Team has committed to conditioning and pre-game Hatha Yoga practices this year, but they need your help. As the Alpena Lady Wildcats assistant golf coach for the past two years, I’ve seen so many previous and PREVENTABLE game-related injuries that I started teaching yoga to better condition and prepare our golf team for play. By introducing a comprehensive yoga for athletes program to our U19 girls (ages 14-19) hockey team, I am hoping to send these young women out onto the ice and into the world with sound bodies, clear minds and a different way to move in the world. As you all know, Yoga will not only minimize sport injuries, and indeed, make for a better player, it will surprise them with a lifetime physical practice.
Your gift of a yoga mat will go a long way to support this amazing and talented group (did you know there is no other hockey team in Northeast Michigan this year, yet it has put four girls on college teams over the past few years?) Let’s give them the gift that the pros use—Hatha Yoga.
You can bring your mats to the ice rink (attach a piece of paper with attention to Kim or Mike Nunneley), drop them by the Team One office across from the OWL or message Kim or Mike to pick them up. Be sure to include your name and address and we’ll get a thank you card out to you asap!
Thanks so much! And Namaste!
