Hear Dan explain top sculling technique tips and how he coaches body awareness for sculling and rowing. Dan is one of the first ‘mindfulness’ coaches in rowing – he also advocates yoga for rowers.
Daniel J. Boyne is the author of Kelly: A Father, a Son, an American Quest(Mystic), The Red Rose Crew: A True Story of Women, Winning and the Water (Hyperion/Lyons), and Essential Sculling (The Lyons Press). He currently lives in Cambridge, MA with his wife and daughter, and works at Harvard University as the Director of Sculling and Recreational Rowing, a post he has held for twenty-seven years.
He specializes in one-on-one or small group settings, where the finer points of technique and rowing anatomy can be more effectively rendered. Several of his scullers have won the Head of the Charles Regatta during that time. In addition to rowing, Dan is a long time yoga teacher and he has worked with various athletic teams and individuals to help them gain a greater mind-body awareness in their given pursuit. Dan graduated from Trinity College in Hartford, CT, with a BA in English, and during his freshman year he was a member of the undefeated National Champion lightweight crew team, but his true love is sculling.
