The balance of spirituality, mental acuity, and physical strength meet in the practice of yoga. The benefits of yoga are endless, let alone increasing flexibility and strength - which are both paramount to achieving success in sport and fitness.
Quite possibly one of the greatest benefits of yoga in relation to physical pursuits is the ability of your regular practice to reduce your 
incidence of injury and to aid in gaining greater mental focus and concentration throughout.
Today, more and more athletes are turning to yoga to help them improve their performance. The benefits are numerous and far-reaching and as such, yoga can help you reach your performance and fitness goals regardless of the type of sport you are into. Read below for a more complete list of yoga’s benefits in relation to sport and fitness.
Benefits of Yoga for Sport and Fitness
  • Yoga helps to prevent injuries by increasing flexibility and strengthening muscles.
  • Yoga can help to improve concentration, footwork, strength, and endurance.
  • Yoga helps release stress in the body and mind so the body has more freedom to perform at its best with the least amount of pain.
  • Yoga exercises can bring greater flexibility to the spine and joints and help improve balance.
  • Yoga is a great low-impact way to cross train. Cross training is necessary for athletes who do the same sport or exercise routine year round.
  • Yoga teaches the discipline of “being present in the moment” through the physical postures and breath work.
Whether you are into golf, running or team-related sports, you can be assured that yoga will help improve your overall state of being as well as your athletic performance. For holistic health, bring balance to your nutrition game plan with all-natural SoLo bars.
Usage Instructions:
SoLo-staffer Carla Poirier practices yoga regularly and recommends taking 1 SoLo bar about 1 hour prior to practice. “The bars are easy on the digestive system so by the time I begin my practice, I will have started to receive the energy from the bar but won’t be hindered by any gastrointestinal distress, as I have experienced with so many other bars. It keeps me energized throughout my entire practice”.
SoLo’s balanced nutritional profile delivers the energy at a slow and steady rate so you optimize the energy being delivered throughout your practice. They are especially useful to take before a morning practice as it can be difficult to find something small enough to avoid abdominal discomfort but large enough to give you the energy required for your practice. As always, remember to take adequate water with SoLo (200-400 mL per bar) to ensure proper absorption of nutrients and for proper digestion.
