  • Physical level:

High-intensity sports like kabaddi, wrestling, etc. holds high potential to strain a player’s body.

  • Mental level:

Kabaddi is a game where multi-tasking goes without saying. A player has to be attentive enough to chant ‘kabaddi’ and keep an eye on the opponent’s move. A little glitch from one player can turn the game around in no time. As much as kabaddi is a game based on physical strength, it is equally weighed on mental cognizance. To keep the heat low and mind in place, one really needs to train the mind to be calm in the toughest spots. This can be achieved only with a pervasive practice of yoga asanas and yoga meditation.

  • Other complementary levels:

This game mandates a player to utter the word ‘Kabaddi’ till the time his turn to play isn’t over. Due to this the energy level of the player deteriorates and eventually leads to tiredness thus affecting his overall performance in the game. Yoga practices like yogic breathing, Nadi shodan pranayama, Bhramari and Ujjayi pranayama enhance the lung capacity and endurance of the player.
