There are numerous benefits to the practice of yoga, but we’ve narrowed it down for you. These are the main three benefits of our Yoga for Athletes Program here at Rotational Athlete Solutions. In addition to these benefits, yoga can help improve your sleep, digestion, bone health, and adrenal function!
REDUCE INJURY RISK
A regular yoga practice imrpoves your body awareness, balance, and proprioception. Increased mobility and range of motion also help reduce the risk of injury.
IMPROVE RECOVERY TIME
Yoga improves circulation, and certain poses increase bloodflow to specific muscle groups, improving cell function. Yoga helps improve lymphatic drainage and immune system function as a result.
Breathing exercises not only make your lungs more efficient, but have the ability to control your autonomic nervous system. When one’s breath is choppy and shallow, the sympathetic nervous system, or flight or fight response, is active.We use breath work to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, creating feelings of calm, comfort, and relaxation.
