Yoga for Cricket: The Tradition-Technology Convergence
Cricket had to wait nearly a century before Kerry Packer arrived with ideas that quickly brought the curtain down on the importance of the five day—yawn – format. A scarce 25 years later, T20 has burst on the scene, quite definitely the in thing not only with GenNow and GenNext, but equally a hit with GenPast, too: my 74-year-young uncle can’t wait for the next edition of the IPL to start.
But modern cricket demands supreme fitness, and the Yoga system is undoubtedly without parallel when it comes to richness of repertoire, there’s such plenty to choose from! Aasanas standing, seated, twisting, forward and back bending there are, and to crown ‘em all, we have the magnificent inversions; and within each category, there exists splendid variety, permitting practice at introductory, intermediate and advanced levels.
