The importance of yoga as a cross training tool for firefighters is just beginning to take hold in this high intensity, physically demanding job. Yoga is not only about relaxation, it also helps improve muscle strength and tone, regulate stress hormones and improve flexibility and balance.
Kula is a Sanskrit word that can be translated as “community,” “clan” or “tribe.” This word is used to denote the sense of inclusion and belonging that can be cultivated through yogis coming together to practice yoga. Kula may also be translated to mean “community of the heart.” This implies that the community of people have shared values, and a shared sense of valuing and connecting with each other.
