We all need to listen to the cues our bodies send us, for athletes this is of the utmost importance. It is the difference between an injury and a lost season or a successful one.
Each sport uses a certain area of the body more than others. Strength programs are designed to strengthen these areas specific to each sport. Yoga strengthens the entire body.
Power, strength and speed are directly related to proper body mechanics. Yoga helps to align the body naturally. Properly aligned bodies transmit forces more effectively and efficiently, creating more power.
With better posture from practicing Yoga comes increased respiratory capacity. This enables the athlete to use oxygen more efficiently.
Yoga flows one posture into the next from all different positions and stances. This trains an athlete's body to be ready for anything. It also teaches the body where it is in space and how to right itself quickly. Very helpful in avoiding injury.
All good athletes are just that...good athletes. The great athletes are the ones whose mental focus is the cherry on top. When the body gets tired the mind wanders. Yoga helps focus the mind with the body, keeping the athlete's focus acute.
