Fast-paced yoga offers a satisfying workout because of the strong demands it places on the body. While you may be dripping with sweat and begging for mercy, you will find that you’re thrilled with the results. If you think yoga isn’t a “real workout” because it’s of its slow pace and calm nature, fast-paced yoga will make you eat your words. This energetic yoga style has you constantly switching from one pose to the next, and it is expressly practiced daily – that’s right, even if you’re still sore from the previous day’s workout. Athletes will tell you that weight bearing sports put an enormous amount of stress and strain on your body. From your hips to your hamstrings or lower back sports can put a real burden on your muscles. Athletic Yoga combines the cardiovascular exercise of a short dynamic warm up with the stretching achieved through more traditional fitness stretches. This type of yoga is especially designed for athletes and is perfect for before and after your traditional training regimen or practice session. Professional sportsmen from runners and tennis players to American footballers have all started to integrate yoga into their lives. Yoga for Weight Loss by Julie Montagu
