8 WEEK YOGA FOR RUNNERS PROGRAM VERSION 2.0

Become a stronger, injury-resistant runner and improve mental focus and breathing with our 8-week online Yoga for Runners Program

If you’re searching for a simple way to improve your running, then this program is the answer.

Not only will it help ease pain and make it easier to run more efficiently, it also has many other benefits:

 

  • Faster recovery after running
  • Helps you breathe better while running
  • Increases mental focus and stamina
  • Improves posture
  • Increases flexibility and range of motion
  • Prevents injuries

When runners take on a training program, they tend to focus on building endurance and speed, but improving strength and flexibility never seems to make it into the game plan. Not taking the time to stretch and build strength can lead to dysfunctional running postures that contribute, or even cause, common running injuries.

 

Yoga can add a layer of safety to your running training – it helps to relieve stress, strain and tightness in various areas of your body and increases strength to give you the ability to run further, longer and faster than ever before.

 

This 8-week Yoga for Runners Program is designed to teach you yoga techniques that you can use any time around your schedule to minimize the risk of injury, support muscle recovery and ultimately help you become a better runner.

 

We also focus heavily on breathing and by following the program you will develop the habit of long, deep, steady breathing while holding poses – perfect to implement during tough sections of your runs.

 

Classes are ideal for yoga newbies and experienced yogis with step-by-step instructions.

What our students have to say:

``Learning how to breathe has really helped my running. I loved the lower leg and foot session. I’ve got something positive out of each session. I’m new to practising yoga regularly so I like the alternative poses that are demonstrated, they give me confidence because if I can’t do a pose I can make adjustments to achieve the same pose/stretch.``
- Sarah Hall
``Consistency in yoga practice after my runs. Regular stretching has helped my flexibility and my lower back issues.``
- Marie Kiernan
``Mobility. I was horrible about working on mobility. I enjoy this yoga so much. I have always heard how good yoga was for runners. I am now a believer.``
- Michelle Fausett
``I’ve been practicing yoga for several years, but I really liked how this was broken down to focus on specific areas of the body that get tight/need to be worked out after running.``
- Sarah
``Definitely helped me get yoga into my fitness routine. I don’t have time to go to a yoga class but can make some time at home.``
- Vicky McGilp
