Weight bearing sports put a huge amount of stress and strain on your body. From your hamstrings to your hips or lower back sports can put a genuine burden on your muscles. Yoga for Athletes combines the cardio workout in a dynamic warm up with the stretching achieved by more traditional fitness stretches.

Professional sportsmen from basketball players to boxers and American footballers have all started to integrate yoga into their training. Strong Flow by Steffy White
