Overall Benefits of Yoga For Runners™
Tight muscles will limit range of motion in joints, create muscular imbalances that will affect your running stride and increase your risk of injury. To stay healthy and on the road, runners will benefit from integrating yoga for runners. Developed by a runner specifically for runners, this program includes both strength and flexibility in key zones. Yoga is not only for flexible people - those that have the most to gain are 'tight' bodies, like runners and endurance athletes.
Some of the benefits yoga will bring you:
Eliminate nagging aches and pains
Recover from injury and reduce risk of new injuries
Improve recovery times after racing
Feel better and run faster
Most importantly, yoga will keep you doing the sport you love!
A complete yoga workout - this program will deepen flexibility while including key strengthening work for runners. It includes an energetic sequence of yoga poses including details on how they benefit runners. This is an intermediate program, but anyone can take part. Participants are encouraged to stay within their limits while being given the tools to explore deeper. This yoga program will result in greater balance and symmetry by:
Stretching tight areas (hamstrings, hips, lower back)
Strengthening weak areas (inner quads, adductors, core, upper body and back)

"Christine, your beginner DVD has helped me tremendously, thank you! When I got it in the mail, the doctor just told me to stay off the road for 6 - 12 week, because of problems with my ankle ligaments. (After already not running for two weeks and taking Advil frequently.) I was very upset... I could not even sit in cross-legged position or in hero pose in the beginning... I was limping everywhere... However, after two weeks of practising your program religiously, I am running again without any pain or swelling!" ~ Anna Varhegyi Gregory ~
