Yin Yoga for Runners (and other Athletes)

Are you training for a triathlon, marathon, or simply increasing your running or cycling this spring and summer?

In this workshop, you will learn to complement these activities with the deep stretches in Yin yoga to assist in recovery from joint wear, tight hamstrings, and burned-out quads.

Our connective tissue can shorten and tighten as a result of the repetitive motions in running, cycling, and other exercises. We will practice a sequence specifically designed to work on the connective tissue in the hips, legs, and lower back. Poses will be held for 3-5 minutes with modifications and props provided.

Our Yin practice will be followed by a short restorative practice focused on lower body recovery.

Learn a practice you will want to make a regular part of your training plan. Suitable for beginners.
