Whether you’re planning on hiking, surfing, or doing any sport really—yoga will only make you better at these activities by strengthening the body, building stamina, and of course, improving flexibility.
The combination of asana (yoga pose) with pranayama (breathing) helps the body in many ways. Here are some easy steps to help adapt your yoga practice and to get you ready for the outdoors! Try a gentler approach. If you’re performing a yoga pose that increases your body temperature (like Surya Namaskara) then slow down. Don’t rush, go at a little slower pace than normal.
