Fitness Integrated Training with Yoga. Enough said.
You may hear the word “yoga” and immediately transport your brain to a sweaty sauna type room or some pretzel like contorted pose and think… nah not for me. So let’s back for a moment and break down WHAT yoga is and why YOU should be doing it.
Yoga is 5,000 + year old science that focus on the integration of mind and body via the breath. When all three are in sync your body is the ultimate power house. Want to move more weight? Run faster? Get stronger? Want to push those knees out and whip those elbows quicker? You can. Only if you know where your elbows and knees are and what your body is capable of.
Optimizing your performance is about recognizing where your body is at and progressing from there. That’s what yoga teaches you. And yes, along the way you gain a little flexibility, coordination and concentration. But more so you gain the awareness to connect mind, body, and breath. The benefit is more mobility, increased performance, and less risk of injury.
