Yoga gives you time to relax – Yoga can be hard, really hard if you’re not used to it. But unlike a HERO or Girls WOD, you probably won’t throw up at the end. CrossFit is primarily about moving fast with intensity, but in order to cultivate speed you must also cultivate rest. Relaxation is important for your ability to integrate the information you receive mentally and physically during your workouts and throughout your day. Being able to relax deeply helps you come back with more power, focus, and determination, because you’ve had ample time to recover. On your next rest day, replace your giant ice cream sundae with a restorative yoga class and see how you feel. Or, who am I kidding…..just do both!
