This Yoga for Swimmers video provides you with a short practice that teaches how to move with greater ease.
Developing greater ease of movement through this yoga for swimmers practice can be transferred into the water so you can swim with ‘easy speed’. ‘Easy speed’ is described by legendary Australian swim coach Bill Sweetenham as developing efficiency at speed or performing at 100% speed with 95% effort. Moving in this way gives athletes the opportunity to achieve a peak performance.
Many athletes ‘over try’ when they want to perform well, which is far from a recipe for success. One of the greatest things about developing a consistent yoga practice designed to improve your swimming is that it teaches this ease of movement by:
- Connecting Your Breath and Your Movement
- Developing Greater Body Awareness
- Strengthening the Mind-Body Connection
