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. This type of yoga is especially designed for athletes and is perfect for before and after your usual training regimen or practice session. Professional sportsmen from basketball players to boxers and American footballers have all started to integrate yoga into their training. Balance, Strengthen & Heal by Annie Adamson
