Running with poor body alignment is like riding a bike with crooked wheels, bent spokes and flat tyres. Hard work, uncomfortable, inefficient and firmly on the path to injury.
What is yoga and conditioning for runners?
Yoga and conditioning for runners is a specifically designed cross training program. It will help you effectively prepare the body for and recover from running. Combining yoga with body weight conditioning exercise, using swiss balls and stretchy bands. It will improve alignment and bio-mechanics helping you run with more comfort, stability and flexibility.
I only want to run better – Why cross train?
Running is your passion. It represents time for you, your sanity and a sense of achievement and purpose. You have running goals and love working towards meeting and exceeding them.
But it’s not plain sailing…..Injuries stop you training, leaving instabilities in the body that hold you back. Tight muscles leave you stiff, uncomfortable or even in pain. That little voice in your head sneaks doubts, insecurities and negative thoughts in that can sabotage a run or even a race.
Yoga is more than just an exercise class.
Designed by a runner for runners. The program aims to ease discomfort improving flexibility and mobility whilst working on alignment so your body can work efficiently and reduce risk of injury.
Unlike other gym based programs, we focus on listening to the body so you can learn to make changes as you run. We include exercises for breathing technique and lung capacity as well as mental focus and mindfulness practices to actively manage stress and enhance performance.
