From power to endurance to speed, athletes at all levels are incorporating yoga to gain an edge over the competition and prevent injury.

At its core, yoga is an exercise for the body and mind that leads to greater aerobic strength, flexibility and focus. Some of the most elite athletes use yoga as part of a successful training program. Yoga also
keeps you focused on a deep and steady breath. Training your muscles aerobically and learning how to control your breathing are two very important aspects of training and racing for any endurance athlete.

Benefits of this series include:

  • Improve agility and range of motion by simultaneously lengthening and
    strengthening muscles for a strong body that is not restricted by bulk.
  • Reduce strain on larger dominant muscles by activating under-utilized
    surrounding muscles.
  • Release muscle tension and counteract strain from repetitive activity.
  • Strengthen the diaphragm and increases respiratory capacity during
    activity to increase oxygen taken in to feed the muscles and improve
  • Decrease likelihood of injury through body awareness and knowledge
  • Promote overall health and wellness
