Re: Teachine outline needed

Please excuse this non-teacher for butting into this forum...but I have to say, from a sports physiology perspective, to warm up and then to meditate would be counterproductive - why increase body/muscle temperature, get the body primed to train, then sit and cool down while meditating? I would strongly recommend meditating first, then a warmup NOT of stretches but of gentle range of motion that mimics the muscle movements to be used during training, plus rolling. Cooling down after training could include stretching.
