For a second consecutive year, Tara Bushong of Shine Yoga Wellness in Noblesville has been a wonderful sponsor of the NHS Boys Soccer program. With her help, the athletes have been able to maintain high levels of physical fitness and flexibility. At first, Coach Dollaske was skeptical when the idea of providing yoga for the program was brought up. Taking time out of a training session for yoga seemed so “new-age”. Coach Dollaske didn’t think the boys would respond well to it so the idea was almost dismissed. Luckily for everyone involved, the yoga sessions began and they have paid dividends on the field. The athletes’ flexibility and strength have definitely increased and the amount of injuries have decreased over this two-year span. This can be attributed to Tara’s high level of enthusiasm that really connects with the boys (as witnessed in the video below). The weekly Wednesday sessions are something the boys look forward to. Even goalie coach Jake Hart looks forward to them and has been known to provide glowing reviews of the sessions.
If you are looking for a yoga studio in the Noblesville area, Shine Yoga Wellness is the place for you. Stop in for a session and tell Tara that Coach Dollaske sent you. #WAT
