YOGA Therapy for Athletes – November 6, 2010 | ECHOyoga


Discover how the balance of stability and ease can help prevent and rehabilitate sports-related injuries.

Yoga helps even out muscle imbalances that often occur in athletes, especially those who compete in in “one-sided” sports such as tennis or golf.
