What is the connection between yoga and kitesurfing? Many practitioners of kitesurfing have learned the benefits of yoga. First, taking a yoga class will teach you how to loosen the correct muscles and warm up. Since kitesurfing tenses muscles, the right yoga exercises can help you loosen the correct muscles. Also, yoga teaches how to breathe right and can help bring a different mindset to your kitesurfing. As Kitejoy magazine mentions, however, not all yoga classes are best: “A good yoga style for beginners (and kitesurfers) should be relaxing but also work the muscles that are not mainly used during kiting – so that inner and outer balance get reinforced. ‘One goal is to stretch and relax the muscles that get strained due to kitesurfing.’”

Due to recent shutdowns during the coronavirus pandemic, everyone’s looking for ways to stay happy, healthy, and fulfilled in the absence of their regular pastimes. What better time to build a home yoga practice? From stronger muscles to stress relief, there are several great reasons to start your own yoga practice at home. If you’re interested, you likely have a few questions.
