“Relax the mind and you relax the body” – this was the emphasis given by yoga instructor and sports psychologist Jonathan Cagas when he guided the ADDU high school boys basketball team in its first ever experience of yoga last November 13 at the Fr. Martinez Sports Center at the Matina campus.

The main purpose of the yoga experience was to teach the players and coaches ways of relaxing and calming the mind in the hope that this would help them in their sports discipline.

The said activity was initiated by the University Athletics Office through Mr. Raphael Claveria, ADDU’s high school sports officer.

Mr. Jonathan Cagas is a local of Davao City who finished an undergraduate degree in Sports Science in UP Diliman and a degree in Sports Psychology at the University of Jyvaskyla in Finland. Currently he is a full time professor under the College of Human Kinetics in UP Diliman.
