I am from India, the country of origin of Yoga. Yoga is prevalent here, but not everyone practices it. Now, due to government initiatives it is gaining popularity. When we were school children, we periodically attended yoga sessions as part of physical education. My son, who is a member of the Junior Indian squad for shooting sport, attends yoga sessions during squad camp. Yoga does help sports persons a lot in general and shooting sports persons in particular. It is helpful for muscle relaxation and muscle control.Now he attending the ISSF Junior World Cup at Suhl, Germany, and the Indian team practices yoga every morning.
Out of squad camps, at home,he does not practice yoga. He does stretching exercises, plays shuttle-cock, listens to music, reads novels, draw pictures, and watch good movies for relaxation. It works for him,as he shows continuous progress and success.
