“Nicole, did you go hiking this weekend?”
Actually, I had done a 5 mile trail run, but close enough. My yoga teacher could see the difference in my practice because of my tight hamstrings.
Runners, can I get an AMEN!? Our hamstrings are always tight. Leg pain is par for the (race) course. But what if there was a way to convince those pesky hamstrings, quads, calves, etc. to loosen up?
Enter, yoga for runners!
My experience over the past 10 years as a long-distance runner and 5 years as a dedicated yogi has produced this list of the top 5 reasons why runners need yoga.
Like running, yoga may take some getting used to. In both endeavors, the thrill is in the journey, not the destination. So, lace up your shoes, grab your mat, and get out there!
At Ignite Yoga, we believe that yoga is for everyone–For people of all ages and all walks of life.
