Yoga and sport are never really mentioned in the same sentence, sport is competitive and yoga the opposite by nature.

 

 

Yoga is wonderful at complementing other training and practices as well as being a complete practice in its own right.

 

If you think yoga is just for gentle relaxation, think again. More and more athletes and sports performers from different disciplines are learning that performance can be improved by adding yoga to their training.

Runners can loosen up tight muscles and reduce stiffness in the hips, knees and ankles.

 

Rowers can improve their reach and reduce shoulder fatigue and build added upper body strength and stamina. Tennis players can help and avoid tendonitis and tennis elbow, stiffness in shoulders as well as helping ankles, knees and ankles. Golfers can improve their swing. Cyclists and runners can help the flexibilty of the their legs, especially hamstrings and help prevent Achilles Tendonitis.

 

In fact, most of the above can be said for ANY sport as flexibility is improved, balance and co-ordination.
