Yoga and Sport seems like an unusual combination. Sports is a competitive activity whereas yoga is a philosophy about a holistic was of leading one’s life. Despite this, they do have common ground and yoga can play a crucial role in enhancing the performance of players.
Yoga not only amplifies performance of players but also contributes to overall well being as a human being. Yoga as a science gives a distinctive understanding of how to adjust the body to the demands of the mind and vice versa.
The practice of yoga converts talent into genius. Also, an athlete knows that success cannot last for eternity and yoga builds the mental courage to withstand failure, clarity to identify its cause, and solutions to retool and re tune the body and the mind to overcome these shortcoming.
A sport is supposed to add spirit to life. Is to be enjoyed both by players and spectators, but the competitive nature of sports and its commercialization often puts tremendous pressure on players.
Yoga can help athletes decrease tension, be more effective in the application of energy, break the resistance of every joint, and coordinate all motion into one motion.
