Hit Reset defines 10 problem areas that hold athletes back and the specific yoga solutions that can fix them. Each chapter shows how the body should work, how to self-diagnose flaws in movement and functional strength, and how to apply just a few specific yoga poses so athletes can “hit reset” and get back to peak form. In just a few minutes each day, athletes can practice the yoga solutions in Hit Reset anytime, anywhere, without a mat or studio classes. Armed with these key, highly effective yoga fixes, athletes will find a radical redefinition of balance that can make them healthier, stronger, and more resilient.
