Yoga for Runners

Yoga and running go together like chocolate and peanut butter.

It’s Day 6 of the Intro To Yoga Challenge and we are celebrating with a video that unwinds the effects of strenuous workouts!

Whether you’re a high mileage runner, a weekend warrior, or you just occasionally get out there and move your legs (like me these days), you know that miles x time = tight hamstrings, hips, ankles and feet–in short, a tightened AND shortened body.

Running as well as any type of dynamic interval workout like CrossFit, Orangetheory or HIIT workouts will shorten your muscles over time, reducing their capacity to support you.

In order to continually enjoy explosive, power driven workouts, you’ll need to incorporate a stretching routine.

This video releases the glutes, hamstrings, hip flexors, ankles, low back and the entire spine. If combined with the T-Spine Mobility video (debuting on Monday, October 8), you’ll have a full body postural refresh. [One of the things I often see in runners, particularly marathoners who never stretch, is a bent over spine. You definitely want to avoid this by practicing these two videos.]

Let me know if you have any questions and feel free to comment and subscribe for more videos!

Happy Stretching!
