Athletic Recovery Specialist In order to perform better, you must recover better.

No amount of weight training will give you more strength than consistently holding up your own body weight through a yoga practice. Yoga can make the weight training better and that in turn can make the basketball better, while the basketball has made the yoga better. It’s all unified. Yoga increases muscular endurance because you typically hold any given pose for a period of time and repeat it several times throughout a yoga practice.

  • Increasing your flexibility will improve your range of motion, which means greater strength due to enhanced muscle recruitment and more efficient movement patterns within your specific sport.
  • Applying correct periods of stress and recovery enables the athlete to successively increase power output.
  • Yoga helps reduce range of motion deficiencies, improve balance and works (recruits) smaller muscles groups that normally wouldn’t get trained.
