STRENGTH IN YOGA

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!

Inspired by the Olympics?

Don’t just collapse while you watch the games and let your muscles get as soggy as your sofa…use the time to build up your own muscles and core strength.
Sit on the edge of the sofa (if you’re not already!) lifting your pelvic floor, gently pulling your navel back towards your spine and up. Or pile cushions on the floor and cross your legs for joint flexibility and lift up and out of your pelvis. Also try keeping one of your legs extended for lengthening the hamstring. Be sure to swop leg positions.
Be creative too – take your feet wide for an inner thigh stretch or have a sitting balance such as navasana, bringing ankles and knees together and raising shins to parallel with floor. Raise arms in line with shins and engage abdominals again.
Enjoy the spectator sport of yoga infront of the TV and show up the couch potatoes!
