No Yoga Experience Necessary!
We will give you the tools to help decrease injury, increase flexibility in runner-prone problem areas such as the IT band, hip flexors and hamstrings, and help correct musculoskeletal imbalances.
This series is designed to complement your training program with a mindful movement practice that focuses on strengthening and lengthening the specific areas that can be problematic for runners. During this 6 week program, participants will have three classes that offer warm up stretches, a short recovery run and then a targeted movement practice to restore symmetry. Three classes will offer strengthening, stretching, joint mobilization, self massage and down regulation of the nervous system with breath and position.
Participants in our Yoga for Runners program will practice mindful dynamic strengthening exercises, breathing strategies and self massage techniques that serve to support elasticity and strength in your body’s tissues for training, competing and recovering from your endurance event.
The program consists of 6 weekly sessions that target your body’s tissues specifically your fascial network. Fascia is your body’s internal 'bodysuit’ that provides structure for all of your organs, muscles and blood vessels. Fascia is a whole body communication system that moves fluids, hormones, nutrients, waste products as needed through your entire body from bones to skin.
With proper training, healthy fascia helps you move better with smooth efficiency. Healthy fascia provides natural elastic recoil to each step you take giving you that literal “spring “ that propels you toward the finish line. With Intelligent Training and Skillful Recovery we set ourselves up for success and minimize chance of injury.
Your investment: $55 for the full 6-week series, or $15 to drop in to individual sessions
