As part of their path to success, the New England Mutiny has selected to partner with The Yoga Shop of Ludlow and to incorporate yoga into their strength, conditioning and recovery training. Instructors of the Yoga Shop work directly with the team prior to training sessions and on match day. Yoga has been a critical component for soccer teams throughout the world; making for a more dynamic athlete. One of the game’s greatest players ever, Cristiano Ronaldo, says yoga betters his performance through improved focus, flexibility, recovery time and agility, as well as providing useful skills in breathing and stress control. Conveniently located off the I-90 Turnpike and minutes from Lusitano Stadium, home of the New England Mutiny, The Yoga Shop offers LivFree® Power Yoga classes which are a dynamic sequence of vinyasa style yoga poses, one of the most popular styles of yoga in the United States.
