Eddie Hall: Adult Men’s Champion

Eddie Hall, the 2017 Adult Men’s Champion for USA Yoga, is the co-founder of Farmhouse Health & Fitness. The name for his business comes from the 127-year old farmhouse that he works on when he’s not in the yoga studio.
 
Caring for such an old structure requires patience—patience that Eddie has learned through his yoga practice. For Eddie, who has been competing since November 2009, practicing patience through yoga is an important way to avoid injury—he will not force himself into a posture if he doesn’t feel ready for it.
 
This patience became integral to Eddie’s progression from regionals through nationals this year. Eddie had not attempted Full Spine Twist at regionals in March due to a minor knee injury. He took some time off of yoga in order to heal and then slowly and therapeutically re-introduced the pose into his routine.
 
His almost nine years of competition have not only given Eddie the motivation to continually improve his practice but have also given him the right techniques to stay calm. As he gets ready to take the stage, he focuses on his breathing, trying to smile, relax, and enjoy every second of his time on stage.
 
After representing the United States in the Adult Men’s Division at the International Yoga Sports Championship, Eddie looks forward to continuing to learn more about becoming a better yoga teacher, coach, and practitioner.
