Why do Swimmers Need Yoga?
Swimmers are tremendous athletes. Not only do they train hard in the pool, but the best of them engage in challenging dryland programs to build strength and endurance.
Yoga is an excellent way to connect a swimmer's rigorous dryland training to the work he or she does in the pool. Yoga builds on swimmer's strength training by adding a flexibility and stabilizing component and promotes the mind/body connection, giving swimmers more control of their increasing strength when they are in the water.
Yoga also actively encourages recovery with intelligent stretching and restorative postures that help prevent injury and ready a swimmer for his or her next training demands.
Yoga develops mental preparation, relaxation and breath control, all crucial for race day as well as to navigate seasonal workout demands.
