Yoga for Athletes Workshop
Sat 15 October 2016, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM SGT
Calling all workout enthusiasts and athletes!
We are holding a free Yoga workshop focused on strength building, releasing muscle tightness, breath work, and restorative poses for relaxation and rejuvenation.
Here are 5 ways athlete-focused yoga can complement your training:
1. Strength and Stamina Improvement
Yoga practice builds strength evenly in the muscles, joints, and ligaments, so you will strengthen supporting and underutilized muscles. Overall, The physical and mental practice of yoga leads to increased range of motion, body control, muscular symmetry, energy levels, and overall strength and flexibility.
2. Injury Prevention
Aside from increasing flexibility and strength, Yoga prevents injury by building mental awareness of the body and the signals it will send you when injury is on its way. Yoga also improves alignment in the body so that poor positioning during performance will not lead to injury.
3. Better Breathing
In yoga the Pranayama, or breath work, is a practice that will increase your oxygen intake and teach you to breathe correctly. Through a well-balanced yoga practice that includes breath work you will benefit from a more relaxed mental state. Deep breathing can help reduce performance anxiety, allowing you to better manage the mental intensity of body work.
4. Builds Inner Strength
Yoga is not just about the physical postures but also mental practice. In yoga you cultivate improved concentration and builds self-confidence that transfers over to your field of sport.
An important part of any athlete's routine is recharging between workouts. Practicing yoga helps to reduce fatigue, improves sleep, clears the mind of worry, and reduces physical tension. Yoga provides ways to calm the nervous system when stress or anxiety set in.
Join us for a one-hour session of athlete's yoga to experience it yourself!
