Yoga Sports Science
Yoga Sports Science is fast becoming recognised as the missing link in strength and conditioning training. Many elite athletes are now incorporating yoga into their training to help them improve their performance. Yoga Sports Science is using the science of Yoga as a system to study the body and how to use specific techniques to enhance the body's natural ability to perform at its maximum level.
The power required to sustain athletic movement comes from the continual shortening or contraction of muscles. Muscles are always working in pairs, one stretching and one contracting, so by introducing a greater mobility an athlete will be able to push the boundary of their range of movement. This pattern of repetitive movement results in the brain setting the muscle fibres to a set given length, which restricts the maximum stretch and range of motion. Through Performance Yoga this set length can be altered which will counteract the negative effects of repeated contraction, i.e. traditional muscle training such as running. Muscles that are persistently worked without stretch become hard and short.
The result of this is:
* Inhibiting the movement of joints.
* Prohibiting the full contraction of opposing muscles.
* Decreasing body efficiency.
* Increasing the possibility of injury.
* Deterring the maximum pumping action within each muscle.
When an injury is healing, the aim is to restore original function to the affected part of the body. Receiving instructions are of the outmost importance to ensure that the correct muscle groups are trained with the appropriate movements and a well-
Through analysing the causes and consequences of the injury enables a programme to be drawn up for the treatment of muscles, joints, and ligaments. The treatments methods used are flexibility, strength, and coordination training together with encouragement and use of modalities to reduce pain and discomfort.

“It is an absolute privilege being part of this pioneering force bringing the benefits of yoga to athletes.”
"I had read about the many benefits of yoga for sports men and women, but was still some what sceptical as I believed I had a good level of flexibility and core strength to begin with, however after just the first practise I realised how much this was going to improve my performance. The atmosphere that Esther creates in her practises is extremely inviting and I would recommend yoga to anyone regardless of background or ultimate aim.”
