The benefits of yoga for CrossFitters
CrossFit can get you extremely tight and yoga will help counter that. Not only will it loosen you up after your workout, it’ll also allow you a quicker recovery and lessen the soreness of your body the next day.
Yoga is very quiet, peaceful, and reflexive while CrossFit is loud, aggressive, and competitive. But it may be those opposites that keep the body and mind balanced.
The intention of Yoga is to gain a control over the mind, body, emotions, & spirit. In many ways, CrossFit seeks to achieve the same outcome. Everyday we show up at the gym, we push ourselves physically and mentally, always striving towards improving ourselves. I believe that by practicing the limbs of Yoga, we can directly and positively influence our abilities within CrossFit.

Why should I do yoga?
Yoga works on our flexibility, strength, faster recovery, mental strength, and an overall better performance. By pairing Crossfit and Yoga, athletes can improve their:
· Agility
· Alignment
· Flexibility
· Breathing
· Balance
· Body awareness
· Proneness to injury

Yoga and CrossFit have different mental requirements. Possibly due to their different mental demands, this coupling allows for a more mentally balanced athlete. Crossfitters who practice Yoga are able to be competitive yet peaceful, aggressive yet calm and find joy in a team spirit yet increasing their own personal goals. They keep in mind not only the strength of their moves, but keep their mind clear, focused and aware of the balance and movements of their body.
While Crossfit boosts your metabolism, we can use Yoga as a stress reliever. One of the key yogic techniques used to counter stress is to focus on the breath. Therefore also breathing exercises are taught.
