Hayley Winter is the founder of the Institute of Yoga Sports Science®, British, and lives in Brooklyn, New York. Over the past 30 years, Hayley has been a yoga educator, worked as a Yoga Sports Scientist, lectured internationally as a specialist in her field, served as an early pioneer of online yoga education, and worked as a member of the Yoga Alliance Online Education Working Group.
Twenty years ago, Hayley first started making connections between yoga and its benefits to athletes and identified how yoga was the missing link in strength and conditioning training. As a result, she spent the next 10 years working with athletes and their coaches—from the English Football Association to Performance Directors with the British Olympic Association—working across different sports with athletes of all ages and abilities. During this time, she developed Yoga Sports Science®, (YSS), and the Yoga Sports Coaching™ Courses providing world-class sports-specific yoga education to yoga, healthcare, and fitness professionals. For the past decade, Hayley and her team have been teaching yoga online and working with yoga teachers who want to specialize in delivering the benefits of yoga to athletes.
