Yoga for Runners Workshop
Time & Location
About the Event
Training for a marathon? Just starting a Couch to 5K program? You've probably heard that yoga is good for runners. But who has the time for all that cross-training? Hold on! Our resident marathoner, Amanda, will help you discover how yoga can make you a better runner: improve your strength, flexibility, coordination, concentration, and balance.
Each month, you'll practice a sequence of postures designed to lengthen and stretch muscles used when running (hamstrings, IT band, hip flexors, tibial muscles, psoas muscles, achilles tendons, and the plantar fascia). We'll work to alleviate spinal compression and build strength in the core to improve endurance and alignment during your runs. We'll learn breathing techniques to help relax your body and make it more efficient.
Specifically scheduled for Sundays, in case you're hurting after your long run, these classes will help reverse the imbalances created by your favorite sport. You'll get a complete set of tools you can use on your own to complement your runs so you can “om to your PR.”
