    Yoga for more focused mind

    Who among you here does yoga for better focus since hunting requires a lot of it? I do yoga to improve my reflex and to help my mind focus too.

    I'm right there with you. The more I do yoga the easier I have found it is to quiet my mind and prevent my thoughts from wandering.

    You guys are pretty funny. There's something wrong if your mind wanders away while hunting.

    I dunno. I can hike all day, sleep wet, and haul meat all night if I have to. But sitting on a spot for 20 minutes can mentally break me sometimes. I could use some more "just be in the moment" in my life if I'm being honest.

    I use yoga to recover, plain and simple. When I'm hunting I have a purpose so I can stay fairly focused.

    I have been working out a lot again. I got tired of going to the Dr and everytime being heavier so I said enough is enough. I have been doing something every day. On my "liteday" I've gotten into doing some yoga. If for no other reason than to just stretch out and recover a bit rather than lifting or going for a long backpack hike or climbing stairs. It's no joke and really loosens me up for the next day of workout. I just go to youtube and search yoga on my smart TV. I can knock it out in 45 mins at home and be on my way with the rest of the day. I've even gotten up in the morning earlyand done a 30 minute morning deal that kinda gets you firing on all cylinders.

    Been doing it for years. It does help that my wife is an instructor...

    The breathing techniques help with shooting and with keeping calm during stressful events - like stalking close to an animal.

    Try a power yoga class, chances are it will no longer be your "easy" day.
