5 Yoga Poses for Swimmers

Here are 5 yoga postures that should be practiced regularly before swimming to help increase your flexibility, tone your body and give you extra strength to swim more effortlessly.

Yoga is an excellent training regimen for swimmers. This dry land training offers lots of benefits for swimmers, which can extremely help in boosting your performance.

Yoga helps swimmers conserve their energy, by enhancing your breathing pattern, which obviously plays an important role in the life of a swimmer.

It also helps developing your balance, which makes you glide in the water in a smooth and effortless manner. But that’s not all, yoga is also good in making all parts of your body flexible. Thus, stretching for swimmers is vital in extending your arms, shoulder blades, legs and feet easier than before.

If you want to build a toned body and learn to coordinate all your skills like a skillful swimmer, then discover the secrets of yoga now and develop flawless and effortless strokes.

Spinal Balance pose boosts your balance and coordination; stretches the lower back, upper back, and shoulders.
Start by kneeling on your hands and knees and extend your straight right arm forward.
When you’re balanced, extend your left leg (the opposing limb) backward to hip level and hold for 10 seconds, breathing deeply. Return both limbs to the floor gently, then switch sides and repeat. Go back and forth rhythmically 3 to 8 times.

Cow Face Pose stretches your ankles, hips and thighs, shoulders, armpits, triceps, and chest. It also aids in any chronic knee pain, strengthens your spine and abdominals and clears your hip joints.

Cat and Cow Pose increases the flexibility of your spine and helps in removing any stiffness of your shoulders and neck. It also helps in achieving the right posture for your body.
It’s important to curve your spine in the right manner. Never let it slant or bent in the wrong direction.
Stretch your entire back and shoulder properly and pay heed on tucking your tummy in.

Pigeon Pose is a hip stretch that also stretches the muscles of your knee in the leading leg. Your lower back is also stretched. The major muscle that is stretched here your the glutes.
Practicing pigeon can make for supple, more flexible hips. Sometimes this pose will take your breath away with its depth, but stick with it and you’ll notice the immediate improvement.

A seated spinal twist is great for your spine and the muscles around it. This is because every nerve of your body roots from the spine. When you twist and release the spine, you are affecting the nerves in your whole body. This pose can be very therapeutic when practiced regularly.
