Women Run Strong - Yoga for Runners
23 Jan 2021
Women Run Strong - Yoga for Runners has now closed and you will not be able to sign-up for it. Please check the Organiser's Description for any organiser updates.
Join Women Run Strong and our teacher The Contented Yogini for a fantastic yoga workshop to get your year off to an amazing start.
As runners we work our bodies quite hard. We build muscle and strength but sometimes at the expense of flexibility. I depend on yoga to support my running. I have found a fantastic teacher, Sara, The Contented Yogini, who teaches me how yoga can best balance out my running. I find that her special "magic" instructions keep me moving and ease tightness. She knows what works.
I invited her to develop this session just for for Women Run Strong aimed at all runners. Content will be suitable for those with less experience as well as offering variations for those who are experienced.
Sara will teach us how to use yoga to support our running practice. The session will involve mobilisation, lubrication and strengthening for the hips, back and legs and a touch of upper body work for balance.
We'll enjoy one hour of practice with relaxation to close. A short introduction and Q&A will bring us into and out of the yoga space.
After the session we will make a number of supporting videos available to you so you can build on the experience and use the techniques before and after running.
As one teacher said "Yoga and running are the Yin and Yang of fitness. "They are not opposing forces, but complementary opposites that interact within a greater whole. Put simply, yoga can fill in where running falls short."
The workshop will be suitable for all levels, even those who have never practised yoga before. You will need a mat and space to move.
Limited places, sign up today!
