The benefits of Yoga for athletes

Whatever type of athlete you are, Yoga is a great way to connect your body to your mind and can make training safer and more enjoyable. It allows you to train your body at a slower pace whilst still gaining results.

Here at SV Sports Therapy, we love to collaborate and support local businesses. In this blog post we are featuring Fringe.Yoga in Epping, to showcase their fantastic studio and Co-Founder Jodie Merrick.

Fringe.Yoga is a friendly community yoga studio in Epping, Essex that offers an extensive timetable of 30+ classes per week including Hot Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Yin Yoga, Kundalini, Pilates, Barre, HIIT Yoga, Sound Healing, Meditation & Pre/Post-natal Yoga as well as the Fringe.Method of yoga…

Ever evolving over her 25 years of study, practice and teaching, founder Jodie Merrick has developed the accessible & creative fringe.method. The method uses the four elements; Earth, Water, Fire & Air as anchors for each practice, on a weekly rotation so classes are always fresh, fun & flowing!

There is a strong focus on the “why” & “how” we can use the practice to enhance all areas of our life by unravelling the tension in our bodies & minds that limit our connections to our true self.

Jodie and her team at Fringe.Yoga teach with the whole student in mind; everything from the intelligent sequencing, informative content & knowledge of how the body, mind, mood & energy interplay is well thought out and described.

Fringe.Yoga offer a fantastic 30 Days for £30 intro offer and also host many workshops, Yoga Teacher Trainings & worldwide Yoga & Wellbeing Retreats

10 benefits of practicing Yoga:

1. Helps to promote mental and physical relaxation through mindfullness.

2. Teaches us how to use our breathing through movement and stretching.

3. Regular Yoga sessions can prevent injury, combat stress and enhance muscle function. These three components are key to being a successful athlete.

4. Yoga allows for full body awareness.

5. It's a mind-body workout that relaxes your nervous system.

6. Improves mental focus.

7. Aids rest and recovery by fighting inflammation and increasing oxygen flow.

8. Yoga rejuvenates , therefore is a great way to give the body a break to reset and refocus after intense exercise. It's a great contrast to high intensity workouts and training, which your body needs.

9. Improves flexibility.

10. Yoga has healing methods for anxiety.

All of the above will in turn enhance sports performance and make you a stronger athlete and human. Life is all about balance and Yoga can help you find yours…Namaste.
