Presentation for Yoga for Professional Athletes

Auer Agency | Charlotte, NC | 704.236.0568 |
Aly Faber who owns Empower Yoga, was asked to speak at the NC Coaches Association July 21st (
I created this powerpoint presentation describing what Aly has established within Yoga virtually creating her own category in Yoga. And that is, yoga for professional athletes. Of course, she realizes that working with elementary and high school age boys and girls is where these rising athletes learn the most. Using yoga training, only makes them stronger and competitive. One of the key elements to yoga is learning to focus when a game is going on and also how to take a hit without it hurting you or knocking you down.

Roller Skating babies

Auer Agency | Charlotte, NC | 704.236.0568 |
Love this!! Take a breather from work and check out this video.
I saw how they created this video tonight and I was just amazed at how technology has been able to take a simple concept and turn it into viral marketing. Good job guys! and babies :)
They had adults wear suits that monitor your movements which feed into a computer. Then they "photoshopped" babies heads and bodies into the computer and transformed them into the babies actually looking like they are doing all these moves.
Just pure fun and great marketing for Evian.
Ok I could say call us and we can create a video for you like this, but believe it or not I think I know a few people that could help us out in creating some video marketing for your company too. 
Call or skate on over to
