Running is exhilarating and intense but can cause some wear and tear on our bodies. Come explore how a yoga practice can help you strike a balance in this 6-week series designed especially for you…yes you, the one over there with the tight hips, hamstrings, and quads, achy back, sore feet, tender knees and shoulders glued to your ears. Runners can add yoga to their routine to increase muscle flexibility and strength, bring balance back into the body, and ultimately reduce the likelihood of injury, relieve pain and even improve your running. Over the course of this series, we will explore yoga poses that stretch, open and elongate the lower body and also poses that build upper body and core strength. Yoga doesn’t only benefit the physical body. The focus on breathing in vinyasa yoga as well as the repeated inversions of head below heart does wonders for lung capacity and maintaining a steady breath. Not only all of that, but arguably the most important benefit of yoga for runners is learning to listen to your body, to honor your abilities, and to appreciate where you are on each and every run even if it’s not your PR! You will walk away from this series with a toolbox of asana to practice on your own and a base of knowledge for how to work with your body in a yoga class. You will be able to tune into your breath and your body and let them guide the way on your runs. Just like a long run on a crisp sunny day, your possibilities are endless!
