Yoga for Runners Series

Taught by Kiran Matsko
Wake Up Yoga Rittenhouse
Thursdays, 6-7:15pm: March 29th – May 3rd
Tuition: $105 for the 6 week series

Running is exhilarating and intense but can cause some wear and tear on our bodies. Come explore how a yoga practice can help you strike a balance in this 6-week series designed especially for you…yes you, the one over there with the tight hips, hamstrings, and quads, achy back, sore feet, tender knees and shoulders glued to your ears. Runners can add yoga to their routine to increase muscle flexibility and strength, bring balance back into the body, and ultimately reduce the likelihood of injury, relieve pain and even improve your running. We will explore yoga poses that stretch, open and elongate the lower body and also poses that build upper body and core strength. Yoga doesn’t only benefit the physical body. The focus on breathing in vinyasa yoga as well as the repeated inversions of head below heart does wonders for lung capacity and maintaining a steady breath. Not only all of that, but arguably the most important benefit of yoga for runners is learning to listen to your body, to honor your abilities, and to appreciate where you are on each and every run even if it’s not your PR!
