Yoga seems to combine several of the techniques discussed earlier in the module. One of the key concepts of yoga is the ability to own one’s breathe especially when they are in uncomfortable positions. If you can control your breathe, then you have control of your body. The practice of yoga also can help one turn out distractive outside thoughts and noises and focus on the now. This is extremely important for athletes when they are attempting to find their center when performing in front of large crowds or on the road in a hostile environment. If the athlete can control the moment, they can overcome or challenge fears and negative thoughts and tense into the desired actions and movements.
