It is often true that people find a certain discipline that they love and stick religiously to just that.
Barre heads wouldn’t entertain a yoga class and Yogis avoid HIIT at all costs!
However, mixing strength and flexibility training is proven to be the best way to maintain body health through improved flexibility and strength.
Strength training is heavy and tough going, but it’s also rich and fortifying, whereas yoga is fluid, healing and connective.
Consumed on their own, they’re pretty good in their own right. But consumed together? You get something far better.
Think of cheese and marmite… The ingredients couldn’t be more different, yet they complement each other perfectly.
Strength training and yoga are exactly the same. One builds the body, the other nourishes.
It’s precisely because of the conflicting nature of the practices, that they complement each other so well.
