Swimming is an individual or team sport that uses arms and legs to move the body through water, in pools or open water.
Swimmers are strong athletes, but just as athletes in other sports, swimmers can encounter injuries. Since swimming consists of repetitive movements, it can lead to nagging overuse injuries, especially around the shoulder joints.
Can yin yoga and mindfulness help the swimmer?
If you ask former elite swimmer Hanna Flordal, the answer is yes. She not only knows everything about swimming, she also got some experience of shoulder injuries herself. Hanna is a yoga teacher trained in the YYFA method, which means she knows how to teach yin yoga and mindfulness for athletes: and specifically swimmers, runners and cyclists.
