Do Not Meditate While Driving
She’s BACK! It’s time for round two with this movement specialist who appreciates the concept of sports specificity. Find out how guest, Dana Santas [@mobilitymaker] works with athletes in order to improve durability and emphasize injury prevention. It’s not about eliminating asymmetries or altering the developments that make the pros good at their job. It’s about making them well oiled machines.
Probably the most exciting bit featured in this week’s podcast is a walk through of a 5 min breathing and meditation exercise. Dana takes you, the listener, step by step through a practice that will leave you feeling more balanced, more in tune with your energy and breathing, and if you’re John…very very sleepy.
Sometimes getting your mind right requires you to slow down and, as one of my least favorite sayings goes “listen to your body”. Or if you’re like me, ignore your liar body, and just listen to this podcast.
EMPOWER YOUR PERFORMANCE.
Remember that you can find Dana Santas as @MobilityMaker on instagram. Additionally, Dana can be found featured on CNN as a regular movement specialist contributor and will be speaking at the NSCA conference this year as part of a “move better” initiative.

A strength and conditioning coach since 2009, Cali has worked with numerous athletes spanning from rugby players to cross country skiers. Almost immediately after finding CrossFit in 2010, she was introduced to a program that better suited her athletic goals. With her existing background in powerlifting and football, she became a natural devotee to CFFB/PowerAthlete and testament to it's effectiveness. In 2012, she left D.C. and headed for the state named after her to be a part of the CrossFit Football Seminar Staff and a Jedi of Power Athlete HQ. Cali currently resides in Seattle where she works full time in law enforcement.
