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.
