Yoga for Fitness

Yoga for runners is a helpful way to loosen up those tight muscles and ligaments, while allowing the areas of the body that take a pounding to stretch and unwind.

Yoga’s mind-body practice will strongly appeal to the mind of a runner, who thrives on the meditative and solitary aspect of their running routine. Yoga can also greatly help bring balance to many of the imbalances caused by running. Most runners have developed subtle, but potentially harmful, imbalances in the way their feet hit the ground and the way they maintain their alignment throughout their stride. Yoga can restore these instabilities allowing the runner to experience a more agile and much safer workout.

And perhaps most importantly, yoga increases flexibility. While runners may have incredible endurance and powerful legs, they have terribly tight leg, hip and upper back muscles. Yoga’s ability to create more range of motion in the body makes it a wonderful compliment to running.
