Yoga and conventional sport may seem to be opposite to one another. If we look at yoga and cycling, the two have different aspects. Cycling has a competitive nature, involves repeated movements over long distances; whereas yoga is a holistic discipline, which avoids our minds from being attached with events.
Yet, practicing yoga gives enormous physical benefits:
It strengthens the muscle bands thanks to the hold positions and the constant control of the breath;
It helps relax the tensions in muscles. As a result, this can manage and prevent injuries.
Yoga has also been proven to enhance concentration and mindfulness. It improves the control of the emotions generated by the competition. For athletes, it helps them deal with the changes occurring in the course of their careers.
The constant practice of yoga helps boost sports performances. It is a way to achieve a person's well-being.
