Flexibility training like what is done in Yoga can help improve the blood circulation to your muscles and decrease recovery time. Strength training can help strengthen the muscles which helps take stress off your joint. Put together, they create a yin and yang, or the ultimate combination of both strength and flexibility.
Anthony Hartz, 4 Star Tight End; What he loves about yoga: “The quality of the stretch… the level of mental concentration that is gained. These same skills that I used in yoga, breathing and being calm are the same things that I will apply to the football field during big time plays and situations.”
Eddie George, Heisman Trophy winner, NFL running back—“Yoga has made my entire body more flexible, I’m stronger in my upper body, and I’m living proof that yoga prevents injuries”
Bruce Lee, “The best exercise I’ve found for range of motion and flexibility is yoga.”
The restorative effects of yoga should never be over-looked, no matter what age, and sometimes slowing down the practice, going deeper in poses, and just feeling the restorative power of them does wonders for the body especially given what we put it through all week long.
All you need to bring is your yoga mat (although we have some on hand) and $5 cash donation.
