Yoga can make you faster
Yoga practitioners learn how to control their breath and coordinate breathing with their movements. This training can prove useful if you’re trying to shorten your run time. “As the runner’s breathing improves, so too will their speed,” says Kvasnic. “As well, deep twists have been shown to substantially increase lung capacity and cardiovascular health.” Breath training can also help you breathe through and alleviate painful side stitches.
