West Lebanon, NH (April 2010)â€”RollerbladeÂ®, the world’s leading brand of inline skates, is proud to announce its sponsorship of The Mobile Yoga Workoutâ„¢â€”a new yoga method melding the benefits of yoga and inline skating. The new workout integrates the inherent skate benefits of aerobic fitness, balance and rhythm to provide an entirely new platform to experience yoga.
Mobile Yogaâ„¢ was developed to incorporate the natural push and glide rhythm of inline skating with the mindful breathing and relaxation benefits of yoga. By applying the basic yoga principal of body and movement awareness to inline skating, The Mobile Yoga Workoutâ„¢ enhances skating technique, efficiency and performance, which leads to a more satisfying skating experience.
Kris Fondran, certified yoga and inline skate instructor and founder of The Mobile Yoga Workoutâ„¢ said, â€œIn the 20 years I have been teaching yoga and inline skating as separate disciplines, Mobile Yoga finally connects the cardiovascular and muscular benefits of inline skating with the serenity and deep physical and mental relaxation of yoga.â€
By combining various yoga breathing exercises, postures and skating movements, The Mobile Yoga Workoutâ„¢ provides a platform for the improvement of muscle flexibility, coordination, strength and endurance. Integrating the basic tenets of a well-rounded yoga routine with the cardiovascular benefits of inline skating encourages connection between mind, body and spirit.
