Why All Athletes Should Practice Yoga


Many sports have repetitive movements, usually in one direction, such as cycling and running. These repetitive motions can build up certain muscle groups while ignoring others. Over time, this can cause disparities in the muscles and joints, leading to injuries from over use. This can cause the body to over load onto different joints not intended to hold extra weight.

Athletes get over use injuries most commonly to the:  

·      Illiotibial Band (ITB)

·      Knees

·      Hamstrings 

·      Hip Flexors 

·      Shoulders 


Often, these injuries are directly linked to misalignment. Yoga helps to align the spine and strengthen the core. Yoga goes beyond simple stretching (pre- or post-workout) by working the muscles and joints through all ranges of motion. By activating the little muscles that help support the primary muscles, the body is worked through all three planes of motion in order to remain balanced and healthy. Yoga works not just in the sagittal plane but, in the frontal and transverse planes as well, ensuring well-rounded development.
