Yoga for Runners, Joggers and Walkers
As a repetitive movement, running can overwork specific muscles, such as the hamstrings and calves as well as the muscles that support the hip joints. Yoga for runners can help alleviate symptoms that might be holding you back.
Yoga for runners can help to keep you in perfect shape for the road as you work on lengthening tight muscles and, even more importantly, build strength in the hips, glutes, legs, ankles and feet.
In this workshop we’ll target all these areas with a mix of functional yoga drills and postures to speed up recovery and restore a natural range of motion.
Road runners will benefit from building strength in the feet and trail runners will enjoy improving their balance – and for navigating those tree roots! Yoga for runners will be able to help all types of runners.
We’ll practice ujjayi breath to help keep the mind focussed and improve your breathing throughout your run.
We’ll round off with a some post-run soothing stretches you can incorporate at home before finishing with a soothing relaxation (equally important as it allows those muscles to heal and rebuild even stronger, thicker and longer).
This workshop is ideal if you:
- run occasionally, often or just a beginner
- spend lots of time walking in your role at work, like post office workers
- enjoy sports such as indoor cycling, badminton, squash or workout at the gym
This workshop will be a mixture of teachings, physical practice, practical tips for when you are home plus plenty of time for questions and answers. The classes have a quiet warmth and provide a supportive environment for learning.
