Yoga for Sportspeople

 

It is a well- known fact that athletes are prone to injuries- worse still recurring injuries. Injuries weaken the body, which leads to poor performance.  Therefore, staying one hundred percent fit is of vital importance to any sportsperson.

"Yoga for Sports shows how yoga can train the mind and body and help sportspeople become more agile, stronger and focused.  Incorporating yoga in their daily life will give them balance, strength and incredible flexibility and help them immensely in prevention and treatment of injuries." - BKS Iyengar
