Sport Tips

Why incorporate yoga into my fitness program?

By using a combination of exercise and breathing techniques, yoga provides a total-body workout that has both physical and mental benefits. In most yoga classes, the focus is on physical poses (called asanas) that can be done quickly to increase heart rate and develop strength, or more slowly to increase stamina, improve balance, and promote flexibility.

There are two main components of yoga:

Exercise: Engages your core muscles and provides an excellent total-body workout. Enhances balance, flexibility, posture, coordination, strength, and endurance.

Breathing/Reflection: Improves focus and concentration and teaches stress management skills.

Whether incorporating yoga into a PE class or an afterschool program, the benefits of yoga extend beyond the classroom as students relate breath control and relaxation techniques to other everyday situations. Applying these techniques can help students' concentration and focus in the classroom as well as out, such as remaining calm in an argument or preparing for an exam.
