About this Event
Yoga for Runners Workshop

This workshop is specifically tailored for the needs of runners, helping to build strength, develop balance, and find deep release for tight hamstrings, hips and quads.

The session will also create a space to cultivate a sense of inner focus and mastery of the breath, which are key components in improving your running.

The workshop will begin with a meditation to help you find your focus, as well as breathwork to calm the mind. We will then move through a dynamic flow, focusing on building strength in the legs and core, as well as working on balance, before moving into a yin practice.

Yin yoga is a fantastic complementary exercise for runners - in yin we hold poses for longer periods of time (around 5 minutes) in order to create a slow and gradual release in tight areas of the body. Practising yin can help you to increase your range of motion, and encourages a deep release in the fascia (connective tissues) - promoting longevity for your running.

Yin also encourages stillness and inner focus - helping us to tolerate discomfort and stay calm when the going gets tough - key attributes for any distance runner.

Perfect for:

- Runners of any distance
- Yoga beginners and beyond!
