yoga for runners (40 mins)

Yoga is medicine for the body! Whether we do it for hours every week or just small sections of 15-20 minutes, making that time to move and connect with your body has huge health benefits. 

A strong yoga practice invites a good level of foundational fitness which you can then apply into other hobbies and areas in your life. A good level of joint stability, muscle mass and core strength will serve you well in many pursuits including running!  Whether you are new to running or have been running regularly for years, introducing yoga into your fitness regime will not only decrease the likelihood of injury but will also help with your recovery between your running efforts.

What equipment do I need?

A good yoga mat is  great investment if you are considering doing yoga regularly. A couple of blocks and a yoga strap might also come in handy long-term but meanwhile you can always use a small table or a wall to support some of the postures if you need. 

When should I do this sequence?

You can do this sequence directly after a run, later on in the day or on a day when you aren’t running to help stretch out any areas of tension. Feel free to pause the video whenever you need and most importantly – enjoy your time on the mat!
