Yoga For Football & Rugby


It’s no secret that a number of high profile footballers and even the Australian and Welsh rugby teams have turned to yoga to supplement their training.


So why is this the case when yoga is for girls...isn’t it?


For starters, training in just one type of sport or activity means you’re building strength primarily in the muscles which that sport relies on. This  can be at the expense of less required muscles which can take your body out of balance, which can ultimately result in injury and misalignment. Hot Power Yoga strengthens and stretches your whole body and can help bring it back into balance.


The increased flexibility and full body conditioning you will gain from Hot Power Yoga can also reduce your chances of injury and assist in injury rehabilitation.page10image25472

And if your whole body is stronger and more flexible, this means your speed, power and responsiveness improve.... which are all important factors in your game.


What’s more, Hot Power Yoga is an athletic and physical style of yoga that raises your heart rate whilst you’re practicing. Moreover, the breathing technique we use encourages deep diaphragmatic breathing, which can help improve lung capacity and builds a rhythmic connection between your movement and breath, as well as calming your mind. This helps you to regulate your breathing when your heart rate is up. And when the pressure is on, your sense of calm and mental focus can make all the difference to your performance.


We don’t deny our classes are predominantly female, but then that can have benefits too, can’t it?!
