Athletics Update: Coach Tzelnic Instills Calm Through Yoga
The timed mile, the beep test, and the fitness circuit are all physically and mentally challenging activities on this winter’s athletic circuit. In an effort to provide balance in the program, Coach Tzelnic’s offering strikes a quite different note with middle school athletes. Every six days, students rotate through Tzelnic’s mindful yoga practice, where the focus is on calming body and mind through gentle stretching and guided breathing. Despite some initial skepticism, athletes have appreciated the calm at the end of a busy school day and look forward to their time on the yoga mats in the Downing Gym.
