Dedicated runners are always trying to find ways to take better care of their bodies and prevent injuries. Too many runners suffer from back pain, knee pain and other disabling injuries. Yoga is an incredible compliment to your cardio that can keep you injury-free and running for life. This class caters to runners, athletes and anyone who thinks they’re “too stiff to do yoga”. We will move through a well-rounded sequence addressing the areas of the body most overused and prone to injury. You will learn the basic mechanics to get the most out of your stretch. Yoga is a fantastic supplement to any athlete’s program to improve performance, prevent injuries and alleviate pain from imbalances that running causes and exacerbates.
