Yoga for Runners
This workshop is suitable for all runners (beginners to elite) and yoga practitioners (no experience to advanced).
Including a vinyasa-style dynamic sequence (designed to be performed pre-run as a warm-up) and moves seamlessly into sun salutations that link strength-building exercises and yoga poses targeting muscle groups specific to running.
The physical portion of the workshop ends with a relaxing, cooling flow accompanied by longer-held poses (yin style) aimed at releasing connective tissue and common tight areas in the body due to running. The workshop incorporates myo-fascial release exercises using tennis balls as therapy tools.
Roll & Release is a method of deep-tissue, fascially focused self-massage that eases and eliminates pain, dramatically increases flexibility, and leaves your whole body feeling completely delicious.
Guided meditation and breath work (pranayama) designed to enhance running performance is interwoven throughout the practice. Participants will receive electronic copies of the workshop’s running resources via email post-workshop and must bring their own tennis balls (2) and yoga mat/ towel.
The purpose of the workshop is to create a mind/body/spirit connection with running using yoga as a conduit and breathing as the primary guiding element so that running becomes a lifelong, easy, enjoyable, injury free, rhythmic practice, with yoga at it’s core.
Suitable for all levels.
9:45 am – 10:45 am Saturday 17th August at the Melrose Showgrounds.
Places are limited – single session only.
