Benefits of Yoga for Athletes
More and more athletes are turning to yoga as a supplementary
exercise routine to fix the imbalance in their body and to improve
their performance in their chosen field of sport. Whether you are a
golfer, basketball, tennis, or football player, the mind body
connection in yoga is an important element in producing peak
Although proper breathing technique is the foundation of many
sports, it is often ignored by many athletes. Yoga will help fix
this lack of breathing skill and develop the correct breathing
technique that is very much required in any game of sport. The
integration of mind and body through correct breathing patterns
helps to build stamina and endurance in an athlete. Proper breathing
techniques also bring more focus and attention to the mind and
sharpens one's intuition. This gives the athlete an advantage over
various poses in yoga helps to build a strong mid-section and the
different types of contractions of these poses and movements act as
a form of resistance training to the typical gym-based workouts. But
unlike in a gym, you can practice yoga outdoors without having to
bring heavy equipment. Imagine doing yoga exercises by a windy beach
with the sound of waves in the background, on a hill top with a
great view and fresh air, or in a zen garden.
Frequent yoga practice increases flexibility and range of motion and
the slow movements is perfect for athletes. Many athletes are
already using yoga movements as a warm up and warm down routines in
their sport. Athletes in sports field such as tennis and golf will
notice improvements in their swing as a result of this flexibility
of the muscles and joints. In any given sport, the addition of yoga
as a supplementary routine training has been known to improve the
performance of the athletes.
athletes are involved in some form of weight training and other
resistance training that uses repetitive motions that only develop
certain muscle groups, while ignoring others. That creates imbalance
in the body. Yoga is able to fix this imbalance and help to develop
the muscles that have been ignored through the contraction of these
muscles in the various poses.
is also a good workout to relieve boredom in athletes who perform
the same types of exercises year in year out by adding variety. It
is also an important element in recovering the body from hard
aerobic and strength workouts. The numerous poses in yoga can be
done in a low or high intensity workout according to the athlete's
needs. Overall, yoga is not only important in bringing in more
strength, balance and flexibility to an athlete, but also brings
more alertness, attention and focus that is so much needed by
athletes in their very competitive world.

Pepper Vinaigrette (8 servings)
salad dressing is nothing like your basic vinaigrette formula — but
you'll soon want to use it nearly every day. The classic vinaigrette
is made with 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar. As you can see, this
version has no oil in it at all, making it extremely low in
calories. But don't worry — it's very high in flavor. Once you've
tried this I'm sure it'll become your basic everyday staple for
salad. And you can never eat too much salad!

Quips and Quotes
Finger points at the moon, but the moon is not at the tip of the
finger. Words point at the truth, but the truth is not in words. To
seek illumination through words is to get lost in the web of words
and not see the truth. ~Huineng
