Oct 26th 2020 Yoga for Athletes

Whether you are new to running or training for your 20th Triathlon, a county club player or just want to be able to kick the ball around with your kids, incorporating Yoga into your regular sport routine offers huge benefits.
No previous Yoga Experience required…no crazy advanced Yoga Poses.
In this 1hr Weekly Yoga class we will be discovering what brings so many elite athletes and sportspeople onto the mat. Yoga can improve strength, endurance as well as flexibility. Yoga can help with mental focus and improve breathing. The risks of repetitive motion found in many sports can be alleviated with yoga poses, therefore reducing the risk of injury.

Whether you are a competitive athlete or a weekend warrior your athletic performance can benefit from the integration of Yoga into your training. The addition of a yoga practice helps in balancing both the physical and mental demands placed on the athlete in both training and competition.
