Yoga for Balance

Yoga for Balance

Your body is engineered for balance and you’re at your best when you’re in balance.

But the reality is that sports (and life!) create imbalances. When you train and compete, some muscles work overtime while others don't work hard enough, some movement patterns become habitual and others become unfamiliar. If left unaddressed, your body will compensate in less-than-ideal ways to keep you going in response to imbalance, increasing your injury risk. Use these videos to remind your body what balance feels like and move back toward it again and again.
