Rollerblade USA Sponsors Mobile Yoga

Rollerblade®, the world’s leading brand of inline skates, is proud to announce its sponsorship of The Mobile Yoga Workout™—a new yoga method melding the benefits of yoga and inline skating.

West Lebanon, NH (April 2010)—Rollerblade®, the world's leading brand of inline skates, is proud to announce its sponsorship of The Mobile Yoga Workout™—a new yoga method melding the benefits of yoga and inline skating. The new workout integrates the inherent skate benefits of aerobic fitness, balance and rhythm to provide an entirely new platform to experience yoga.

Mobile Yogaâ„¢ was developed to incorporate the natural push and glide rhythm of inline skating with the mindful breathing and relaxation benefits of yoga. By applying the basic yoga principal of body and movement awareness to inline skating, The Mobile Yoga Workoutâ„¢ enhances skating technique, efficiency and performance, which leads to a more satisfying skating experience.

Kris Fondran, certified yoga and inline skate instructor and founder of The Mobile Yoga Workout™ said, “In the 20 years I have been teaching yoga and inline skating as separate disciplines, Mobile Yoga finally connects the cardiovascular and muscular benefits of inline skating with the serenity and deep physical and mental relaxation of yoga.”

By combining various yoga breathing exercises, postures and skating movements, The Mobile Yoga Workoutâ„¢ provides a platform for the improvement of muscle flexibility, coordination, strength and endurance. Integrating the basic tenets of a well-rounded yoga routine with the cardiovascular benefits of inline skating encourages connection between mind, body and spirit. Experiencing this connection on a daily basis can improve ones overall physical, emotional and mental capacities that in turn relieve stress and improve overall health and well-being.

Kalinda Bogue, Marketing Director at Rollerblade, said: “We're very excited about the enthusiasm surrounding The Mobile Yoga Workout. Inline skating has found an organic partner with yoga — together they embody a modern, active, outdoor, calming lifestyle pursuit.” As the sponsor of The Mobile Yoga Workout™, Rollerblade recommends the Spiritblade XT skate model as the perfect complement for your Mobile Yoga routine.
