YOGA!
High School sports can be an amazing outlet for teens, encouraging regular physical activity and providing a healthy release from academic and social pressures. That said, our teens are leading more hectic lives than generations past, especially if they’re involved in athletics. Yoga helps them develop positive ways to cope with the stress that’s unique to adolescence while also giving them healthy, effective ways to build their physical skills. Yoga is also a natural way to improve performance and prevent injury. The mind-body connection helps teens to become more in tune with what their bodies are telling them, so they can recognize more quickly when a particular body part is weak and needs attention. Sports can cause tight and sore muscles, and there are few activities better than yoga for lengthening and stretching these areas.
Yoga will help your teen athlete:
- Increase core strength
- Improve pulmonary efficiency
- Reduce performance anxiety
- Prevent sports injuries
- Improve concentration
- Improve response and reaction time
- Increase flexibility & range of motion
- Develop balance and focus
- Increase endurance
- Relaxation & de-stress
