The Sports Ashram are based in Leeds in northern England and do the majority of our work from there but also host training camps, days and sessions across the UK and abroad. Our aim is to provide high quality triathlon coaching using yoga.

Both Jack and his partner Kirsten are experienced yoga students and believe that everything you learn on your mat can be of use in your everyday life. Together they have developed their own style of yoga merging Jack's extensive triathlon experience with Kirsten's yoga knowledge and physiotherapy background. Practising yoga in this way can play a really positive role in an athlete's physical and mental health.
