The ancient science of yoga is one of the most researched and most followed practices ever.

Simone Moir My One on One Yoga GlasgowIts theory is based on a strong foundation and the balance of white and red muscle fibre - for a long, healthy and fulfilling life

Power stretch for body and Mind In the hunt for the Holy Grail of hard bodies what is your definition of fit?

Stretching improves muscular balance and posture. Flexibility is a joint's ability to move through a full range of motion. Flexibility training (stretching) helps balance muscle groups that might be overused during exercise or physical activity or as a result of bad posture. Improved Physical Performance and Decreased Risk of Injury A safe and effective flexibility training program increases physical performance.

A flexible joint has the ability to move through a greater range of motion and requires less energy to do so, while greatly decreasing your risk of injury. Most professionals agree that stretching decreases resistance in tissue structures; you are, therefore, less likely to become injured by exceeding tissue extensibility (maximum range of tissues) during activity.

Reduced Risk of Low Back Pain Stretching promotes muscular relaxation. A muscle in constant contraction requires more energy to accomplish activities. Flexibility in the hamstrings, hip flexors, quadriceps, and other muscles attaching to the pelvis reduces stress to the low back.

Stretching causes muscular relaxation, which encourages healthy nutrition directly to muscles; the resulting reduction in accumulated toxins reduces the potential for muscle shortening or tightening and thus reduces fatigue.

Increased Blood and Nutrients to Tissues Stretching increases blood supply and nutrients to joint structures. Stretching increases tissue temperature, which in turn increases circulation and nutrient transport. This allows greater elasticity of surrounding tissues and increases performance.

Stretching also increases joint synovial fluid, which is a lubricating fluid that promotes the transport of more nutrients to the joints' atricular cartilage. This allows a greater range of motion and reduces joint degeneration. Improved Muscle Coordination Another little-known benefit is increased neuromuscular coordination.

Studies show that nerve-impulse velocity (the time it takes an impulse to travel to the brain and back) is improved with stretching. This helps opposing muscle groups work in a more synergistic, coordinated fashion. Enhanced Enjoyment of Physical Activities Flexibility training also means enhanced enjoyment, and a fitness program should be fun if you want to stick with it.

Not only does stretching decrease muscle soreness and increase performance, it also helps relax both mind and body and brings a heightened sense of well-being and personal gratification during exercise.

And which kind of muscles would you actually want? Muscle Fibre Types There are two different fibres in muscle Get the right mix in the muscle relevant for your sports

Simone Moir My One on One Yoga GlasgowRED muscle fibre

Slow twitch muscle fibres: Contract slowly; keep going for a long time Endurance - Important as postural muscles,

Little energy burnt Sports: long distance running, cycling, cross-country skiing

Muscles that contain a lot of slow twitch fibres are red, because they contain lots of blood vessels, they rely on a rich supply of oxygenated blood as they use oxygen to produce energy for muscle contraction. Slow twitch muscles can produce large amounts of energy slowly.

WHITE muscle fibre

Fast twitch muscle fibres: Contract quickly, but rapidly get tired Fast reaction – impulse muscles (i.e. eye muscles)

Lots of energy burnt Sports: squash, fighting, long jump, spinning, sprints

Fast twitch muscle fibres don't use oxygen to make energy, so they don't need such a rich blood supply. This is why fast twitch muscles are light in colour Endurance or speed Most of your muscles are made up of a mixture of both slow and fast twitch muscle fibres Yoga has the ability to make you achieve the right mix for you Non-human example of Dark and white meat for non-vegetarians :-)

Chickens have fast and slow twitch muscle. Dark meat, like in chicken legs, is mainly made up of slow twitch fibres. White meat, like in chicken wings and breasts, is largely made up of fast twitch muscle fibres. Chickens use their legs for walking and standing, which they do most of the time.

This doesn't use much energy. They use their wings for brief bursts of flight. This requires lots of energy and the muscles involved tire very quickly.

Leave the theory to me and enjoy the great benefits
