Yoga and sport go hand in hand. Yoga can help people from all kinds of sporting backgrounds.
Practising yoga is an excellent addition to any sports or fitness exercise you may regularly do as it can improve your flexibility and strength. It can also help prevent injuries as you learn to develop more awareness of your body and muscular balance.
Whatever activity you most often do - whether it’s running, gardening or just sitting at a computer all day, it can lead to over using certain muscles and under using others – this can create an inbalance in the body, tension or stiffness and sometimes injury or strain.
Some of the other benefits of doing a regular yoga class include improved posture, better breath awareness, concentration and ability to focus, as well as improving quality of sleep.
So whatever exercise you regularly enjoy, practise some yoga alongside for overall wellbeing.
