STRENGTH IN YOGA

Leave a comment

Man Flexing BicepsSaturday saw a group of yoga teachers in south east Wales having a brilliant yoga day’s training on how to bring strength into yoga, and why it’s so important. We all know yoga is great for increasing our flexibility, but without strength, flexibility can mean joints aren’t protected and injuries can happen.

Our experienced teacher, Zoe Knott, gave us simple yet effective exercises based on anatomy, to help strengthen thighs, feet, arms, abdominals and wrists. With these areas strengthened, the whole body is covered!

And unlike muscle building exercises that build just the middle part of the muscle, yoga strengthens the whole of the muscle right down to the connective tissue, which protect joints so effectively.  Zoe also covered ways in which we can enter and exit yoga poses safely and strongly, keeping the back in neutral and protecting the sacro-iliac joints which often suffer from general wear and tear.

Yoga classes around Wales will be benefitting from safe, strong yoga at the same time as getting flexible – and when you know that strength in body also means strength in the mind, just imagine what we’ll be able to achieve!
