For athletes, both yoga and tai chi forms can be useful cross-training, as a way to connect your whole body together and move more efficiently. You develop increased energy for greater levels of challenge, so this kind of training is useful for substantial gains in mobility, agility, and endurance.
Practice here can also decrease the likelihood of injury, and support faster healing when injuries do happen. You can even work your way out of chronic injury and pain, where traditional approaches haven’t worked so well.
