Do you participate in other sports?
Complement your training programme with Yoga.
Running, cycling and other sports activities often mean tightness in the hamstrings, hips, shoulders and intercostal muscles around the rib cage. Yoga will help to stretch these areas and can prevent injury and muscle soreness. Yoga can also improve your focus and energy and therefore help to improve your performance in your sport.  Many professional sportsmen and athletes find the practice of Yoga beneficial and complementary to their training programme.

Ryan Giggs said that Yoga was the key to prolonging his football career. He said “It strengthens your muscles, improves flexibility, but also keeps you fit and gets you out on the training pitch so you can train every day. You want to be out there so you need to get your body robust and ready for anything. If I do a yoga session the next day (after a game), I’m nowhere near as stiff and I’ll be back training at the right level a lot quicker.”
