SUSTAINABLE HEALTH: body & mind

At Radika we offer coaching for sport professionals and their coaches. We use breathing, mindfulness and yoga techniques to improve physical and mental performance and prevent injuries.

Definitions as we use them in our sports performance workshops:

Mindfulness – To pay attention in a specific way, with intention, in the present moment and without judgment.

Breathing – Breathing is an autonomous function of the nervous system. Unlike the other autonomous functions, breathing can also be regulated in terms of speed and depth. By regulating breathing, one can have an effect on the remaining autonomous functions: the heart rate and the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems.

Yoga – In its most traditional definition, Yoga is union, integration. It is a system that if properly understood can be used to self-regulate the nervous system and to promote interoception – a greater connection with the body and its tissues. This allows us to to notice and prevent injuries. Through dynamic stretching and strength work we aim to protect the joints that are affected in specific sports, give mobility to the spine, and also activate, and to strengthen the muscle from the inside. Each sport has its specifications and we adapt the training to the sport and to the person.
