QUOTES:

CSIO is excited to partner with Modo Yoga London to offer our affiliated athletes discounted access to yoga services. This partnership is another step towards helping athletes achieve their optimal physical performance beyond their sport-specific training. Having had such positive uptake with our athletes accessing yoga classes with our previous four Modo Yoga partnerships, adding Modo Yoga London was a natural progression.”

Danielle Gelineau, Manager, Athlete Services, CSIO

“Modo Yoga London is proud to partner with Canadian Sport Institute Ontario in support of the hardworking athletes who represent our province and country so valiantly. We believe yoga has a very important place in the training of these individuals by offering the opportunity for increased flexibility, injury prevention, quicker recovery, stronger mental focus, and a greater understanding of the importance of breathwork. Time on the mat is the best possible complement to the variety of sport preparation techniques available today. Welcome to Modo, CSIO Athletes!”

Dianne Morgan, Co-owner, Modo Yoga London
