Flexible Warriors: Yoga for Endurance Athletes

01/06/2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Flexible Warriors

Yoga for Endurance Athletes

Jan 6, 3-4:30pm • Fitzmaurice Performance

 

 

Are you an athlete looking to:

 
 
>> Enhance your athletic performance
 
>> Increase your flexibility
 
>> Prevent injuries
 
>> Recover more efficiently
Endurance athletes spend the majority of their time in the forward moving plane of movement. Runners and cyclists propel their bodies forward through recruitment of the hip flexors, quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes and core. Swimmers propel their bodies forward through the repetitive movement of rotating the shoulders, utilizing the pectoralis (chest) muscles, trapezius and latissimus dorsi (upper/mid back) muscles and the core. The repetitive nature of these sports put the body at risk for muscular imbalances, which could eventually result in injury.
Yoga encourages an individual to utilize both the superficial and deep muscle groups, resulting in appropriate balance in strength and flexibility. Plus, practicing regular yoga improves overall body awareness and balance. Having a better sense of where the body is moving in space is a vtial skill for any sport.
 
Keep your body flexible and strong and your mind supple and resilient with Yoga for Endurance Athletes.

All levels and types of athletes welcome.

Sports Injuries

  • One reason for sports injuries: imbalances in your biomechanics. Another reason: sitting at this computer you're reading this on or hunching over your mobile device. (You just sat up straighter!)

    Practice yoga and you have a great tool for preventing injuries and for bouncing back more easily from the stressors in your sport(s) as well.
