i need to understand the benefit of how incorporate yoga in my basketball training program.
Are you training yourself, or are you coaching others? My answer will be similar, except your considerations would be only for yourself or for your team as a whole. Also, I’d consider the age range and their attitudes towards yoga. Some of my sports clients have been resistant to “yoga,” but will do “corrective stretch.” But, surprise, the corrective stretch I do is rooted in yoga….
In the short term, I’d look at where players are getting injured the most frequently, and I’d look at the mobility / flexibility around those joints.
Then, I’d move into a more holistic approach with the entire body and breath.
Other yogic opinions will differ; the instructor leading my 200-hour yoga program says, “It often doesn’t matter where you start because it’s all connected fascially and by the breath anyway….”
