waf.Good Faith : A New Path to Enhancing Performance and Well-being

The repetitive nature of certain movements in skateboarding, such as jumping and landing tricks, can lead to overuse injuries. Recognising the numerous benefits that yoga can bring to skateboarders' physical and mental well-being. Flexibility is a key component of skateboarding, enabling fluid movements and precise execution of tricks. Yoga helps improve flexibility by increasing joint mobility and stretching muscles, allowing skateboarders to perform with greater ease and grace.
