How Yoga Can Make You a Better Athlete

Yoga is of course wonderful for strengthening any body, but athletes in particular can benefit from yoga's healing properties in terms of focus, endurance, conditioning, and flexibility. As Mind Body Green contributor Rita Trieger writes in her article "How Yoga Can Make You a Better Athlete":

"...yoga asanas or postures offer athletes a plethora of ways and means to improve on these qualities, as well as innovative techniques to incorporate balance, muscle conditioning and healing relief for joints."

So if you're an athlete, or know someone who is, you can use yoga not just to relax but to make you even better at the sport of your choice!
