Ever wondered, why children are less stressed than adults? They are always playing – jumping, bouncing, running and skipping. Whatever anger or irritation that mounts in the day simply evaporates in play.
Mimicking the movements that we use in the group games like basketball, badminton, rowing, cricket, and football, the Art of Living has developed a lively sequence of yoga – one that is sure to lift your spirits in no time and transport you to childhood days of carefree fun. “Sports Yoga” acts as an instant stress buster. High-octane actions combined with playfulness help improve flexibility and tone the muscles, making the yoga session energetic and fun.
As the name suggests, this sequence is for everyone whether you are into sports or not. But if you are a sports person, here is a way to cross-train and become stronger in your sport. This will help you with your sport, enhancing athletic performance, preventing injuries and increasing flexibility.
