Participating in 3 demanding sports can create imbalances in your body such as overdeveloped quadriceps and tight hamstrings, which can lead to injury and even misalignment of key body structures.
We understand finding time to build Hot Power Yoga into your triathlon training is tough, but the effects on your training and performance can be significant.
The flexibility poses of a Hot Power Yoga class take you well beyond a regular stretching routine and through a deep full body stretch. The heat in the studio allows you to get further into the stretches safely, which encourages flexibility - lessening your chances of injury and promoting injury recovery. (Find out more about injury prevention and rehabilitation).
The strengthening and balance poses are beneficial both to the big and small muscle groups and even tendons throughout you body, so practicing builds strength to your overall musculature, particularly your core.
The combined effect of your stronger more flexible body is a new-found freedom and fluidity in your movement, which means more power and speed in your triathlon performance.
Proper breathing is the foundation of any Hot Power Yoga class and the deep diaphragmatic technique promotes increased lung capacity. Because it’s an athletic style of yoga, your heart rate will increase whilst you practice meaning you are trained to breathe more deeply, effectively and rhythmically whilst you’re exercising.
Just 2-3 classes of Hot Power Yoga per week for a month should make a noticeable change to your triathlon training. If you’re serious about your triathlon training, we believe you absolutely need to integrate Hot Power Yoga into it.
