The A-League club have announced a new partnership with YOGA Loft.
Newcastle Jets are adding a new spiritual weapon to their arsenal next season after YOGA loft became the club’s official yoga studio.
The affiliation will see the Hunter St-based studio will host one private yoga class per week with the Jets players and Strength and Conditioning Coach Karl Dodd believing it could lead to the prevention of injuries.
“A lack of flexibility can increase the risk of a player sustaining an injury, so it is important to find that balance between flexibility and strength and yoga is a discipline that achieves that,” Dodd explained to Football Australia.
“On top of the obvious physical benefits that the players can get from practicing yoga, they also enjoy it because it is something different that breaks up the normal training routine.”
