Yoga for Runners Workshop

Teagan runners

Sunday, October 13th, 1-3:30pm at Maha Yoga and Healing Arts

Running builds muscle strength and burns fat. It keeps your heart and lungs strong, blood pressure in check and reduces the risk of heart attack. However, runners are all too familiar with pulled muscles and joint pain that accompany training. Running often exaggerates imbalances in the body which can, over time, cause injuries.

A yoga practice will help prevent injuries by increasing your flexibility and bringing balance to your body. It will improve your performance by strengthening your whole body as well as your mental focus. In this 2 ½ hour workshop we will learn poses to increase range of motion, improve flexibility, stretch out your muscles, and relax your mind. We will focus on hamstrings, quadriceps, hips, core strength, and breathing.

During the workshop we will:

  • Break down poses and alignment principles for a safe and effective yoga practice
  • Explore modifications and the use of props
  • Discuss how to strategically incorporate yoga into your training schedule
  • Provide you with a sequence designed specifically for runners

Join Teagan and Lisa to find out how yoga can and will make you a better runner. Yoga will compliment your running to improve performance, help prevent injury, and lead to a more balanced you! $25 by 10/6, $35 after.
