"Synchronized swimming is a sport that demands a lot of coordination and advanced water skills. It is kind of a hybrid of swimming, dance, and gymnastics combining great strength, endurance, flexibility, grace, artistry, and precise timing, as well as exceptional breath control.
The University of Ottawa's GeeGee's synchronized swimming teams have had a successful season this year thanks to the swimmers' perseverance and hard work. These girls have put their heart into their training while investing extensive time to design a routine and endless hours of practice to master it.
Yoga has not only helped this team lengthen, control and regulate the breath but also create a balance between their mind and body. Yoga taught them discipline, poise, balance and strength to improve their body's physical health, to clear their minds to have a better performance and surpass themselves.
We are always trying to push past our personal limitations because nothing is ever completely mastered. It is this intrigue (for one) that keeps each and every one of us around..."
