Vinyasa Yoga for Swimmers – Shoulders

At The Race Club, we believe that Yoga is one of the best forms of dry land training for swimmers. In 2008, all of our Race Club swimmers training for Beijing incorporated two Vinyasa Yoga sessions per week in which movement is synchronized with breath. The swimmers liked Yoga and felt that they benefitted from these sessions. In 2008, Rebecca Soni abandoned her traditional strength training and stretching routine in favor of doing Yoga. As a result, she felt stronger in breaststroke and swam faster.
