Athletes use their bodies and muscle groups in the same way over time. Yoga helps to engage opposing muscle groups and brings symmetry back into the body enhancing overall balance and performance and lends itself to longevity in specific sports. Suppleness and balance are an essential part of many sports, and more and more teams are incorporating yoga as part of their training plan, resulting in fewer injuries, increased balance, and greater longevity for participants.
Yoga for Athletes should not be confused with Athletic yoga. We use our bodies all day, every day, Yoga helps to stabilize and strengthen the core and brings awareness and a sense of balance and ease into whatever you do. Yoga is beneficial for every body.
