Yoga for Runners

Posted on 27 Jul 2013 in Workshops | 0 comments

Liberate your body and find freedom on the trails by practicing mindfulness on and off the mat. Yoga and running are very different in many ways, but they are also similar as they both involve using the mind, body, and breath together to test the boundaries of what we think we can do.

Join Jamie Hanson, E-RYT and runner of 25+ years to learn how you can improve your running. Athletes of all kinds can benefit from a regular yoga practice. Many athletes have an imbalance in their bodies because of the targeted muscles that they work in their sport. Runners are typically tight in the hips and hamstrings and relatively weak in the core. Having a regular yoga practice can help runners increase flexibility while strengthening areas that will improve their running and reduce the risk of injury. Yoga can also be a practice to restore tired muscles that have been overworked as well as a way to assist in the healing of acute or chronic injuries.
