”YOGA STRENGTH: HOW TO ADD LOAD TO YOUR YOGA PRACTICE”
Adding load will stimulate your tissues to adapt and become stronger. When our tissues are stronger, our body becomes resilient and therefore we are less likely to experience injuries. Only by adding load can our tissues adapt and increase their tolerance. Come, play and learn how by using yoga blocks, towels or your water bottle you can become stronger. More load = stronger tissues = better yoga practice.
