In this workshop we’ll focus on yoga postures which target areas of the body that are most used and prone to injury for runners. We’ll discover how yoga can improve athletic performance and efficiency, and prevent injury, through the development of core strength, flexibility, muscle endurance and mental focus and the improvement of body alignment and range of motion.
As a former marathon runner and Ironman® triathlete, I’ve experienced the impact that endurance sports can have on the body. Due to my interest in sport and fitness, I’ve always approached my yoga practice with a strong awareness of alignment and precision. I bring to my teaching a deep understanding of functional movement and body alignment and how to harness muscle energy in order to build core strength and stability.
In this workshop, the yoga practice will focus on precision, alignment and connecting breath with movement, through exploring Hatha Yoga techniques. It will give you an insight into how yoga can be an important cross-training practice to complement your training, both to improve your running form and to care for your body at the same time.
All experience levels are welcome, including beginners.
The investment is £30.
