How Yoga Can Benefit Sportspeople

A sports led yoga programme enables you to do use yoga in the context of  of your chosen activity, whether it be figure skating, football, golf, running, rugby, martial arts or something else altogether.

Yoga can benefit sportspeople by helping you to become a better athlete, rather than a yoga practitioner as such. I work with you to address any imbalances, dysfunctions or compensations which may have arisen due to repetitive movements or patterns of your sport. You may wish to try some breathing or meditative techniques to help with focus and external pressures, particularly useful if you are working at a competitive level. You may not even come near to a headstands or inversions and arm balances - unless you want to of course!

Maybe you want something restorative to counteract the stress or take the pressure off when not in training or performing.  It is a good way to focus on what you may need in the context of doing what you love.

Essentially, in a sports led yoga programme we are looking to optimise performance, reduce injury, aid recovery time and maximise longevity of your career.
