Yoga for Runners

While running is a great form of exercise, it can often lead to injury or overuse when not complimented by mobility and strength work. Yoga is a great recovery activity for runners to relieve tightness caused by all the time you spend out on the road. The mindset of many runners is that yoga is “a way to get a good stretch” but in actuality it offers runners so much more. Yoga is a great way to improve not only flexibility but also stability, balance and strength.

Running doesn’t work the body evenly and can often lead to muscle imbalances. Tight ankles, hips, hamstrings and hip flexors combined with weak glutes and a weak core can often lead to both injuries and back pain.

In this workshop you’ll learn how to safely stretch while also working to strengthen weak muscles.
