CHICAGO – The Chicago Red Stars today announced a season-long agreement with Chicagoland business Yoga By Degrees, naming the yoga chain the “Official Yoga Partner” of the team for their 2014 National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) season.
Yoga by Degrees (www.yogabydegrees.net), with locations in Wheaton, Western Springs & Elmhurst, is both a hot yoga studio and a community that offers a variety of vinyasa yoga classes to accommodate every fitness level and interest.
“We have taken great efforts to focus on the heath and wellness of our players this season,” said Red Stars General Manager Alyse LaHue. “Yoga by Degrees has been the perfect partner to provide the team with great benefits to complement the current training structure. The staff and instructors are all very knowledgeable and have been really inviting to our team.”
As a partner of the Red Stars, Yoga by Degrees opens its doors to Red Stars players who now incorporate yoga into their training schedule at least two times a week. In exchange, Yoga by Degrees will receive various marketing assets throughout the course of the team’s 2014 season.
“We are absolutely thrilled about partnering with the Chicago Red Stars,” said Meghan Rohde, Manager and Teacher at Yoga by Degrees. “It has been a wonderful experience for our teachers and students to have the Red Stars players practicing at our studio on a regular basis. Not only does their strength and passion show up on the field, it is also now showing up on their yoga mats! Our hope is to not only bring the physical practice of yoga into their bodies to help them remain healthy throughout the season, but to also inspire them to explore the mental benefits of yoga in their life and out on the soccer field. We hope this partnership will help inspire other athletes to step through our doors and start to experience how a consistent yoga practice can help them achieve more flexibility, balance and mental clarity.”
