People all over the world have been practicing different types of Yoga for centuries, yet it is still considered one of ACSM’S top fitness trends for 2016. While the benefits of yoga are dynamic for any and all age groups – there must be some reason that a workout that is centuries old is still trending.
Over the past ten years, we have seen functional fitness emerge as a popular training technique as more people are getting involved in physical activity at different stages of life. The truth is that the physical benefits of yoga (i.e. increases in core strength, balance, flexibility, and range of motion) can create a strong foundation for a functional fitness program.
Perhaps another reason Yoga continues to gain popularity is the increased awareness of the need for active recovery for athletes at all levels. A yoga class can provide a low impact option between high volume workouts. There are several yoga practices that are gentle enough to meet the requirements of an active recovery training program.
