Although we’re all familiar with yoga, many of us still think of it as just ‘stretching’, however, yoga is more than that. With elite athletes including NFL stars and Ultramarathon runners adding yoga to their training programmes, but just how beneficial to your training can it be?
Ryanne Cunningham has revealed in her new book, Yoga for Athletes that yoga can bring an added edge to the performance of everyone from amateurs striving to improve their lives to professionals competing against elite athletes. Cunningham has instructed former Green Bay Packers players B.J. Raji, Andy Mulumba, Tramon Williams, Mike Neal and Jarrett Bush, as well as current Green Bay Packer Randall Cobb and athletes from many other sports, from her Flow Yoga Studio in Wisconsin.
