If you’ve already cottoned on to the benefits of yoga then you’ll know that yoga can play a key role in maintaining a healthy body and mind. To further help athletes maximise their potential Nike has launched new yoga workouts as part of the free Nike+ Training Club app. The do-anywhere routines are between 15 and 45 minutes long and are the perfect solution for those who don’t have time to pop to their local yoga studio.
The routines, which are free to view to anyone downloading the app, were developed by Nike Master Trainers and yogis, Branden Collinsworth, Traci Copeland and Leah Kim. Each yoga workout falls in one of three pillars: endurance (flows that help you build stamina); strength (typically involving flows that hold poses longer to increase muscle strength); and mobility (restorative sessions that aim to release tension and help you recharge mentally). The varying workout focus areas, lengths and poses offer something for everyone – from the beginner yogi looking to improve their practice to those who are more advanced.
To flow on the go, just choose your workout based on the amount of time you have, the style of workout you’re craving and whether you’re in the mood for a beginner or advanced routine, or as a complement to another activity such as running or training. Offering a range of shorter session lengths makes finding space for yoga more approachable so that you can easily build a healthy habit and create a balanced athletic life.
If you already have the NTC app, search “yoga” to find the new workouts. If you don’t have the app, search your app store for the free download. The app already has a range of yoga workouts available with 10 more routines rolling out between July and September 2017.
