Preventing injuries has made a world of difference to football players like Ryan Giggs and tennis players like Andy Murray who regularly use yoga to keep joints and ligaments moving easily without strain. It is plain to see at http://www.stopsportsinjuries.org/ how sportsmen and women become injured through repetitive use of muscles and limbs and how vital it is to build in a repertoire of care to avoid injury. After all, if we enjoy doing something, we want to carry on doing it, whatever our age.
Yoga helps to keep vital muscles, such as hip flexors and hamstrings, lengthened for runners and cyclists. Meditation techniques help focus the mind and concentrate on what’s happening in the present. Relaxation stops tensions building up in the body and maintains a sense of looking after the body.
