Yoga & Breathing

There are many benefits for athletes who regularly include well-guided yoga in their training regime and daily life. Some of the key gains are:

  • overall flexibility and ease of movement
  • core conditioning and stability
  • structural balance and alignment
  • blood flow and lymphatic drainage
  • breathing habits
  • body-mind integration and self-awareness.

Specific yoga postures done with a functional approach can help you to develop optimal range of movement and core stability for your sport. This translates into efficiency, power, endurance and resilience.

Yoga is an ideal rest day activity as it stimulates the neuromuscular pathways without adding extra load and activates the parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and recovery.

By improving your breathing patterns and fine-tuning your internal awareness of physical sensations and mental thought processes, you can positively change how you respond to discomfort and stress. This can be particularly beneficial in ultra-distance events.

Please note that I am no longer providing private yoga sessions on site. All yoga instruction is now carried out via video call (FaceTime, Messenger or Zoom).
