The Sports Ashram will be at Castle Howard Races 23rd/24th July 2022 teaching FREE yoga classes to all the athletes and supporters.
We will be running a programme of half hour classes perfect for getting a taste of how we’ve adapted yoga to help athletes.
If you have considered that yoga could be helpful but have never tried a class, or have not been able to find a suitable one then this is a great opportunity.
Come along if you are: an absolute beginner, a yoga convert, male, female, by yourself, with friends or family, “too stiff for yoga”, curious about yoga, want to reduce stress or have any other reason to join us.
We’ll have classes that are suitable before racing, after racing, tailored to specific disciplines, some will have a physical emphasis, some will be more about breathing and relaxation, but they will all be yoga in its many forms.
Saturday: Yoga classes will be held in event village (tipi tent) from 10am till 4pm
Sunday: Yoga classes will be held in the event village (tipi tent) from 10am till 3pm
Types of yoga classes to try out:
- Yoga for swimmers
- Yoga for runners
- Yoga for triathletes
- Post-race yoga stretch
- Relax, breathe and chill yoga
- Family yoga
- Junior yoga
The daily schedule will be displayed outside the yoga tipi tent, all classes are run on a “first-come-first-served” basis and yoga mats are provided.

Quotes from some of our athletes doing yoga: “Thoroughly recommend Kirsten’s Triathlon specific Yoga for generally feeling good and flexible and of course for better Triathlon results! As an older age-group triathlete I have had to sadly accept that my body can’t do what it used to 20 years ago; and rest, nutrition and yoga are key to ensuring that my ‘chassis’ is able to support the ‘engine’ I’ve built over decades; and not descend into a cycle of breakdown and injury. (Yes strange as it may seem to you youngsters this does happen at a certain age!). I have tried several yoga ashrams and Kirsten’s is the most effective and time-efficient for a Triathlete (and I suspect athletes from other sports too). They are great fun too! What’s not to like. I really recommend you try one”. Stefan
“I’ve just done the video from your website and it’s great. My shoulders were certainly tight. Starting with the breathing pattern really puts you in the zone. It does make you aware of the tight areas which need work on so this will be a regular session in my program. I also felt so relaxed after, so great for mental health too!
Thank you”. Joanne
