Hey Luc, Great Question. Yoga can help you in some really great ways. Balance & Strength: Balance is really important in surfing, and yoga will help you develop balance through different positions that require you to pull strength from your core. Lung Capacity & Shoulder Strength: Learn to breathe! Yoga can teach some powerful breathing techniques which can boost your stamina and reduce those "jelly-arms" we can get from paddling. Additionally, yoga can strengthen and keep your shoulders healthy. Flexibility: Get a faster pop-up. The truth is, any athlete can benefit from yoga - it's great for the body and mind. The type of yoga that surfers would be most interested in is called: Power Yoga. Big positions, focuses on strength and flexibility of both big and small muscle groups .
