Let’s face it. Most runners have tight hamstrings, quads, hips, and shoulders.

Yoga for Runners can help!   This class is great for Cyclists as well! Running does not necessarily strengthen your core, but good core strength supports healthy running.

This class is great for anyone wanting to build more core strength and balance as well as open up tight shoulders, hips and hamstrings. We will also make time for some relaxing and restorative poses.

  • Yoga for Runners (and Cyclists) focuses on opening tight hamstrings, quads, shoulders and hips safely without having to do difficult yoga poses.
  • We will work on balancing poses that will help to build strength and stability in your feet and ankles that are so important to running.
  • When your shoulders are more open it is easier to breathe more fully making running more efficient.
  • Building core strength will be an important part of this class series.
  • We will work on breathing practices to help you breath more fully and easily.
  • Yoga can help to heal chronic pain and reduce the chance of future injuries.
