Yoga for Cyclists, Runners & Athletes DVD

YOGA FOR CYCLISTS, RUNNERS & ATHLETES DVD

 

Those who engage in sporting activities can find that pro-longed training and endurance sports can have a real impact on the body – muscles and joints become tighter, the body becomes less flexible and over-usage of certain muscles groups can result in injuries and time out from the sports we practice.

Look Within Yoga has designed yoga classes for people who engage in a wide range of sports. Yoga is a great cross-training practice for people who participate in sports. A regular yoga practice will lengthen muscles that have become tight, keep your shoulders, hips, knees and ankle joints moving and enable you to enjoy your sports practice by reducing aches and pains. Yoga will keep you flexible, strengthen your core, keep you mobile and supple.

The benefits of yoga for people who practice sports can include:

  • Improving overall performance by increasing stamina
  • Increasing flexibility in the muscles and movement in joints which helps prevent injury
  • Building core strength – this is important to reduce injury, lower back pain and reduces the wasting of energy
  • Improved mental clarity and focus which increases concentration
  • Keeping the body and muscles in balance – some sports such as cycling overwork certain parts of the body whilst not working others
  • Keeping the body supple and reduces stiffness which can reduce injuries
  • Improves balance and agility
  • Improve concentration by learning diaphragmatic breathing

Yoga for cyclists, runners and athlete’s DVD includes a 60-minute yoga practice which is broken down into 10 sections. Each section focuses on a different area of your body and includes yoga practices for the lower back, hips, legs, core, arms as well as breathing and relaxation practices.

This means that you could do a 5-minute yoga practice one day or a 30 minute practice the following day to enable you to create your own yoga sequence for the length of time that you may have or a areas of the body that you want to work on.
