Swimming is demanding.
Long-lasting participation in the sport requires strength, mobility and endurance.
But you knew that when you started… and it you didn’t let it stop you.
I love Jeff's style and really like the way he explains the poses and their application to swimming.
Whether you’re looking to beat a personal best, swim in your first open water event, or qualify for national championships in twelve weeks— yoga can contribute to your progress and help to prove yourself to yourself.
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.

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.
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.
And we know the one truth every competitive swimmer knows— that we lose ourselves in our passion, but we also find ourselves there too.
Jeff brings a rare combination of having coached swimming and also being a certified yoga instructor.
"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."
"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"
"I reached out to Jeff for his expertise in yoga specifically for endurance athletes.
Athletes are busy people. Most athletes time is filled to the minute with busy jobs, families and demanding training schedules. Although endurance athletes know a good mobility and yoga routine would help them improve performance and recovery, they often don’t have the time for a class.
In addition, most classes are not specific for endurance athletes. It can be tricky to incorporate yoga correctly for the specific needs and limitations of an endurance athlete.
Jeff’s program broke these barriers. Being a top level swimmer and triathlete for over 20 years he can design specific routines that address all these needs. Jeff brings knowledge and experience to blend good yoga into your program. 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."
“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.”
These classes are designed for the unique needs of swimmers.
Develop a balance of shoulder mobility and stability to help prevent injury.
Increase your core strength and stability in positions that relate to different positions in the water.
Learn different breathing practices that will help you swim more efficiently and have a race ready focus.
Enhance your recovery through restorative practices that will allow you to relax and let go.
Your swimming can improve in several ways:
A lack of time is one of the reasons why many swimmers and multi-sport athletes do not incorporate yoga. Your priority is to spend time training for your core discipline.
The great thing about Swimming-Specific Yoga classes is that they range from 10 minutes to 45 minutes and are available to you anytime, any where.
This gives you the ability to fit them into your schedule with relative ease.
Yes! These are all levels classes that are appropriate for a beginner.
These all levels classes will help you not only improve your performance, but help keep you in the water for many years to come.
The poses and sequences focus on functional movement and can be adapted for individual differences.
If you are a triathlete, you are a swimmer (even though it may not feel like it at times ;). First off these classes will help your performance in the water.
But, does it also apply to running and riding?
We focus on hip mobility, core stability and overall body awareness with things such as balance, which will have a lot of crossover.
Enhancing recovery applies to all athletic pursuits as does breathing efficiency and sharpening your mental skills.
The time you take practicing these classes will help you in and out of the water.
This classes are all levels classes. You can set up a computer, TV or big screen to allow the swimmers to follow the practices as group.
We also have customized practices that will not only allow you to do the sessions as a group, but give each swimmers the opportunity to do them on their own.
