Yoga and swimming complement and enhance each other. When done together they make for a more balanced athlete. The Yoga for Swimming and More DVD program was designed to enhance swimming with dry land training but can also be used by anyone who wishes to stay healthy, strong, flexible and balanced. Not only does the practice of yoga promote the elongation and fluidity of muscles so important in swimming, it will help correct strength and flexibility imbalances caused by the repetitive nature of swimming and many other forms of exercise. Through regular practice you’ll notice the deeper effects: a clearer mind and a nervous system which will be better able to handle stress.
This 40 minute DVD features: conditioning exercises and breathing to warm up the body's side seams; movements to keep the spine fluid and to correct imbalances in shoulders, legs and feet; standing postures that foster balance, strength, flexibility and symmetrical alignment.; a relaxed lateral stretch and deep relaxation.
