Want to be a better dancer? Do yoga, learn why!
Dancing is a powerful form of movement art, which gives every individual to express themselves through their very own unique bodies. Dance may look effortless, but it requires a lot of strength, flexibility and stamina.
Professional dancers are facing a lot of injuries when they practice. Dance is a physically challenging activity. Studies have shown that dancing five hours a day or longer leads to increased risk of stress fractures and other injuries. The intensive training that many dancers have gets them a little time to recover between the sessions. Dance can sometimes be painful for the body and actually increase the levels of anxiety.
This is where yoga can be really beneficial to dancers.
When dancers practising yoga on a regular basis, can help them to develop concentration and focus and fights stress. Yoga calms down the mind and gives more sense of inner awareness. Dancing is a very competitive career and could have a negative impact on some individuals. Yoga is quite the opposite. Yoga encourages a non-competitive and accepting attitude toward the body and this more compassionate and accepting way of approaching physicality could be so helpful during times of injury or stress.
Yoga creates a deep internal awareness of the body. An enhanced bodily awareness can allow you to move more freely and clearly, potentially improving your dancer’s movement. Working through movement to improve your whole self can create something which is continuous and has depth and it’s beneficial to your wellbeing.
