Move Differently to Help Your Yoga and Sports
Yoga, like other athletics, can actually be fairly imbalanced for the body. Like running, classical vinyasa is very leg-heavy, with much less demand placed on the upper extremities. The movement patterns tend to be practiced along a sagittal plane, which essentially cuts the body in half, separating the entire left side from the right side. Also like running, this does not provide enough variety on the muscular demand.
