Yoga for cross-training? It’s always a yes! As their official exercise partner, we recently invited members of the DHL Stormers and the Cape Town City Football Club for a Yoga experience at Virgin Active Point so they could feel the benefits of adding Yoga to their cross-training regime.

Thabo Nodada, Tashreeq Morris, Shane Roberts, Douglas Mapfumo, Mnombo Zwelendaba, Ali Vermaak, Kade Wolhuter and Keke Morabe joined Virgin Active Yoga instructor, Lee-Ann Elliot as she put the athletes through their paces and introduced them to Yoga at Virgin Active and how it can be used as a tool to boost performance and aid recovery.

The DHL Stormers had to say

And the Cape Town City Football Club?

If you’d like to find out how Yoga can make you a better athlete, please come and try a Yoga class in club. We’ve also got loads of online classes available so you can get a feel for each style in the comfort of your own home.

A huge thanks to all the players, we hope you enjoyed the experience as much as we did.
