Naturally, yoga can be used as a tool to help aid many other physical activities. In this class, Drinie will show you many yoga poses that could prove to be very helpful to runners. Of course, most runners will tell you that stretching is vital, so a short yoga stretch can be a good way to prep for your run. Most believe that stretching before your run is the best way to avoid injury. We would consider this class to be an All Levels class with both simple and challenging postures. Poses include Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward-Facing Dog), Parsvottanasana (Pyramid Pose), Paschimottanasana (Seated Forward Fold Pose), Uttanasana (Standing Forward Bend) and more. As always practice safely. Enjoy!
