Runners Yoga is a fantastic class aimed specifically at runners; however this class will benefit ANYONE, all are welcome.
We will focus on heart openers and balance work and deep focused stretches for the hamstrings and quadriceps and strength work for the knees and ankles. Everything a runner needs.
This is a very inclusive supportive environment where you can take any variation you need; be that the easy option or the more advanced progression. so don't worry if you're not flexible! Stiff runners welcome!
The class entails a yoga warm up, targeting hamstrings with the aid of a strap. A full body mobilisation and then sun salutations to fully warm up your spine and limbs. We will stretch, tone, flow in Vinyasa, hold poses, challenge ourselves, sweat and breathe and find ourselves on the mat – I can’t wait for yoga playtime with you.
The Pranayama work we’ll do in our flow section will assist you in your running, be that at the ParkRun, the treadmill or on your favourite running trail.
The type of people who would enjoy this class are those who are sporty, energetic, love running or just love a challenge. If you like a gentle push and the chance to work hard and stretch deep – this one is for you.
The benefits of this class are strength, improved mobility, agility, improved balance work both static and moving, a stabilised core structure and a happy mind.
