YOGA loft's Owner, Creative Director and Head Teacher Cveta Jovanoska said YOGA loft were delighted to have formed a partnership with the Jets.

"We're thrilled the YOGA loft has partnered with the Newcastle Jets to add a weekly dose of yoga to their training program,” Jovanoska said.

“Professional athletes around the world are using yoga to enhance their performance and it-s the men who are leading this trend and breaking the stigma that yoga is just for women."

Jets Strength and Conditioning Coach Karl Dodd said that weekly yoga sessions at YOGA loft could assist with injury prevention.

“A lack of flexibility can increase the risk of a player sustaining an injury, so it is important to find that balance between flexibility and strength and yoga is a discipline that achieves that,” Dodd explained.

“On top of the obvious physical benefits that the players can get from practicing yoga, they also enjoy it because it is something different that breaks up the normal training routine.”
