A Swimming-Specific Yoga Success Story
73 year old masters swimmer Rosa Montague, who won gold medals at FINA World Masters Championships in 2002, 2008 and 2012, explains her experience with Swimming-Specific Yoga, which she started in March 2020.
“I have always shied away from yoga classes thinking of them as boring and not my kind of exercise.
By June/July I knew that my body and mind were really benefiting from 5 practices a week.
Now, I am back in the pool and not complaining about aches and pains as other masters swimmers I know are. And for an excitable person, I am much calmer!”
“I have proof that swimming specific yoga works! In my first competition for over a year, The times for all my events (100 + 200 back, 100 fly and 200 free) were all faster (2-4 seconds) than they were in February 2020.
And, of course, with less swimming because of the covid lockdowns/pool closures over the year."
Thank you, thank you, thank you. You have taught me so much - old dogs can certainly learn new tricks.”

Why Do Yoga With Us?
I have spent over half of my life coaching swimmers and multi-sport athletes. After searching for a more effective way to train on dry land I began implementing yoga into athletes programs.
The benefits I saw them experience both physically and mentally were powerful. I knew if the practices were designed specifically for swimmers we would see even better results.
That was a huge factor of why I became a yoga teacher. Now after designing swimming-specific practices for the better part of the last decade I want to share them with you.
I want these practices to be a way to not only enable you to improve your performance, but to increase your wellness and keep you in the water for many years to come.
"I have done yoga sessions over the years but honestly I always felt pushed through the time set.
Your constant reminder to listen to your body is refreshing. Options for so many levels, times and areas focused on is mind blowing and yet not overwhelming.
I am really enjoying yoga like it’s a whole new thing again."
"I never practiced, nor was interested in yoga before now. I love your practices, even with a bad knee.
One of the things I like most about your practices: your instructions are so detailed and clear about how to position the body that I can do some positions w/o having to constantly look at screen."
"The yoga videos are super encouraging, clear, fun, with helpful cues.
I like the holistic aspects - coherence of movement transitions from one pose to another, emphasis on breath, body awareness. I like being able to put it on pause if I need to go over something or take extra time."
British and European Masters Record Holder
"I love Jeff's style and really like the way he explains the poses and their application to swimming."

We’re Not Only Professionals. We’re Athletes Who Get It.
We teach yoga to swimmers because we are swimmers.
What it means to push yourself beyond your comfort zone. We have survived rigorous workout regimens, shoulder pain, numb limbs, and waiting hours just to swim a 60-second race.
We also understand...
The immense joy that comes from finishing your race, looking up at the board, and seeing a time you’ve been wanting to see for months, and the excitement that fills your chest when you hear people cheering for you each time you come up for air.
We haven’t just studied it. We’ve lived it.
And we know the one truth every competitive swimmer knows— that we lose ourselves in our passion, but we also find ourselves there too.
Hear How Coaches and Swimmers of all Levels are Benefiting from Swimming-Specific Yoga
2008 Olympic Team Coach
"Jeff brings a rare combination of having coached swimming and also being a certified yoga instructor."
11 Time Canadian National Team Swim Coach
"Jeff has worked with the HPC-Vancouver swimmers since the fall of 2016 delivering swimming specific yoga classes twice a week.
The swimmers have enjoyed the approach and orientation that Jeff brings to every class. I feel they are more flexible, more aware of their bodies and are able to control their thoughts much better."
KISU Swim Club
"Jeff gave a talk on the power of the breath and the skill of controlling your breathing.
I noticed a positive change in my swimmers after the talk. They were more conscious of their breathing both while they were swimming and during their recovery. I'm sure they will use what they learnt to help them in competition. They will use it as a skill beyond the pool."
Head Coach SwimFaster Club
Our team has incorporated yoga into our training with our top age group swimmers for 2 seasons.
We had weekly sessions with Jeff where he was able to adjust the yoga session to our specific needs depending on what stroke we were focused on or whether we needed a strength or recovery session.
With Covid we have been fortunate to continue working with Jeff by Zoom and open the sessions up to our younger age group swimmers who are also benefiting. Jeff’s experience and background in swimming have made him very relatable and the perfect fit to help our swimmers become more focussed, flexible and strong.
We appreciate you Jeff!
"Since retiring from competitive swimming, yoga has been my go-to workout to stay fit, and Jeff Grace has been my go-to yoga teacher and expert.
Jeff's depth of knowledge enables me to dive deeper into my practice, stay balanced and remember to leave it all on the mat."
1992 Olympic Gold Medalist (200 butterfly)
Masters World Championships Qualifier
"As an aging competitive masters swimmer, both flexibility and core strength have become of increasing importance in my dryland training regimen. Unfortunately, like many time constrained adults, conventional "stretching" often ends up on the backburner (it's boring). Enter Jeff - he has created a focused program to target my swimming specific needs as a sprinter and has effectively improve my mobility in the pool."
I highly recommend Jeff's program for anyone trying to maximize training efficiency while keeping it interesting."
Masters World Championships Finalist
"My motivation for taking yoga was to improve my flexibility and work on my body's imbalances.
These sessions were an integral part of my plan and just as important as the other components.
These sessions kept me injury free and I would not have had such a successful year without Jeff's sessions. I now integrate weekly yoga into my overall training plan."
English Masters National Champion
"As a masters competitive swimmer in the UK I have always known that yoga for swimmers is highly recommended, but I never seemed to be able to find the time previously to fit it in.
I am enjoying having developed a yoga practice and that is all thanks to Jeff. I am used to fast paced activities but I’m enjoying the control and concentration yoga requires."
Technical Director, Swim BC
I invited Jeff to run a Yoga Session for my athletes. Jeff asked me questions about what my goals were for the session, then he perfectly tailored the session to meet these objectives and the specific needs we have in our sport.
Jeff demonstrated resourcefulness. He was clear with his instruction and patient with my athletes with their novice yoga skills.
It is unique finding someone who understands sport and can deliver yoga sessions geared for the specific needs of the sport while following the coach's objectives.
I have no hesitation in recommending Jeff Grace.
Creator of Effortless Swimming
"Jeff is able to combine his knowledge of yoga and swimming to create classes that are perfect for developing an athlete's mobility, awareness and control of their body which translates to better performances in the pool"
Marilyn Chychota Coaching
Professional Athlete 2003-2012 (Ironman Champion)
"It can be tricky to incorporate yoga correctly for the specific needs and limitations of an endurance athlete.
Jeff’s program broke these barriers. He designs specific routines that address all these needs.
No more wasted time doing posses that don’t benefit you, or time wasted driving to classes the aren’t specific to your performance needs.
Thanks Jeff for helping my team have better recovery, mobility and performance benefits from incorporating yoga into their program."

1996 Canadian Olympian
"I love Jeff's approach and teaching method. He breaks things down so that everyone can get something out of his classes from beginner to expert.
As a coach I can see a benefit to all my masters swimmers. These classes are designed to support swimming specific movement and motion as well as addressing some of the problem areas I deal with regularly.
Jeff has year's of swimming experience that are apparent in his classes and I would recommend that every masters club looks into this for their swimmers."
Canadian National Team
5km Open Water
“Jeff is very knowledgeable in the practice of yoga and how it connects to the sport of swimming, and has helped me so much over the years.
By combining the art of yoga with the specificities of the sport of swimming, I have been able to improve my swimming specific strength and flexibility, which has allowed me to progress myself in the pool.
The way that he is able to allow me to disconnect myself from all the distractions around me, while finding a deeper connection with my body and mind, has made his class an amazing experience for me as an athlete.”
2017 World Championships Bronze Medalist
"Jeff at Swimming Specific Yoga has provided a wonderful complement to my training regimen as a high performance swimmer.
Jeff's vast knowledge of essential breathing techniques and swimming-centric poses is evident from the first session we worked together; he teaches crucial relaxation and recovery elements to anyone wanting to become a more well-rounded and complete athlete."
