Like many different kinds of athletes, rowers often find themselves having excellent strength but limited flexibility. Regular attendance at yoga classes can greatly help rowers increase their flexibility and be a nice addition to their workout routines.
Beginning yoga students are smart to find a knowledgeable teacher with good alignment training to help them prevent injury. Such a teacher will assess the student’s physical condition and offer necessary modifications for each pose. She or he can guide the student so that yoga can help rowers get even more out of their sport.
