~Cross Training with
Destin Yoga promotes balance.
training with Yoga is a great way to condition the entire body, not just
specific muscle groups while developing a new set of skills. Yoga allows you the
freedom to vary the stress placed on specific muscles or your cardiovascular
system and will help the body recover from a vigorous cardio or strength
workouts. After months of the same movements your body becomes extremely
efficient performing those movements, and while that is great for competition,
it limits the amount of overall fitness you possess and reduces the actual
conditioning you get while training. Rather than continuing to improve, you
simply maintain a certain level of fitness. Yoga will build overall muscle
strength and flexibility and is extremely helpful at reducing the risk of injury
from repetitive strain and overuse in tight muscles (quads, hamstrings, hips,
shoulders and low back). Yoga can be done at a high (Power Yoga) or low
intensity (Yoga Flow, Slow Flow) and there are hundreds of postures that can provide a
workout for any athletic need.
The term cross
training refers to a training routine that involves several different forms of
exercise. Yoga is unique in that it stretches
your tight muscles and strengthens
your weak muscles, improves range of motion and endurance,
creating balance in the body.
