'The future of yoga has to be more evidenced based.'
William Broad, senior science writer for the New York Times.
Proving Yoga Maximizes Athletic Performance
The Institute of Yoga Sports Science® is changing the way we think about Yoga and optimizing athletic ability by providing a tool that measures its impact through data collection and performance metrics. This is the first time in the long and established history of yoga, a tool has been able to gather evidence showing how and why yoga works.
Yoga is a science and one of the original systems used to study the body. For over 5,000 years, it has been successfully referenced by many other disciplines. In ancient times, it was at the heart of a warrior’s preparation for the battle field.
The nature of the battlefield may have changed over the centuries, but throughout its history, yoga has remained a practical pathway towards improving performance as it enhances the body’s natural ability to perform to its highest level.
Yoga is a Serious Addition to Athletic Training
Until now yoga had been overlooked as a serious addition to training. As more sportsmen and women, sporting associations, educational and coaching programs start to recognize that yoga is the missing link in developing and sustaining sporting performance, then the demand for specialists to deliver the benefits is set to increase.
