Do you practice a sport within Halifax? Are you looking to improve your core training? If the answer is yes then read on…
Regular Yoga practice can help you to unlock your maximum performance potential. You can enhance your performance, no matter what your sport or discipline, working individually or as a team. Through Yoga we work with proven and safe techniques, creating a specific programme based on your needs and goals whilst complimenting your existing training regime.

The Athlete’s Guide to Yoga: An Integrated Approach to Strength, Flexibility, and Focus, by Sage Roundtree affirms that yoga will “improve your form, efficiency, and power. Yoga’s approach to concentration and breath awareness will improve your mental focus and mental endurance – the intangibles that become so important at the end of a long training session or race”. Furthermore, Roundtree states that the physical practice of yoga combined with its mental and spiritual approach “will teach you how to integrate the body, the mind, and the breath to stay focused and calm even in the face of intensity” – a skill that will serve you in every aspect of your life.

Yoga is applicable to all sports, from football (Ryan Giggs is renowned and well documented for being a huge advocate) to swimming, running, cycling, the benefits are open to all! Andy Murray recently started talking about his huge belief in yoga on his mental and physical performance in the tennis arena. It’s definitely something worth considering to take you that extra mile in your chosen sport.
