The Need for More Female Coaches
Women are getting more and more involved in sports these days. Women are playing sports, they are managing sports teams and players, and they're also coaching sports.

Why Yoga is Beneficial to Hockey Players

They do high interval conditioning because they work in high intervals on the ice, and they work on their agility as their movements are to be unpredictable. These different kinds of training really put strain on the body, and are why stretching is a key component in a hockey player’s warm-up and cool down exercises.
But what about rest and recovery? Just like hockey requires it all, yoga can do it all when it comes to a hockey player’s mental and physical recovery.
