There is more to Yoga than you think!

As a natural anxiety relief, many people take yoga as a way to relax and be one with themselves. I know for me, yoga has never been my cup of tea, but as an NCAA athlete, I quickly learned how yoga was more than just laying and listening to the soft sounds of nature. I suffered from performance anxiety, but being in touch with my breathing, yoga was an essential way for me to focus mentally before each game. Injury prevention was a quick second as to why it can be a staple to your training. I was terrible at stretching and warming up before each game, it became a necessity for me weekly. The constant hits and contact to my body, I then suffered from a lot of muscle related injuries. Yoga became important for a way of strengthening my muscles and create better flexibility. Saved me a lot of pulled and strained muscles!
