How yoga can keep our bodies in peak performance for running
The aches, pains, and muscle tightness that develop during or after running are all too familiar to those of us who exercise regularly. These are typically felt in the back, knees, legs, ankles and hips. They have an impact on both experienced runners as well as those who are just starting out. The good news is that yoga poses can assist with pain relief, injury prevention, and even improved breathing while running.
Benefits of yoga include:
- Great for recovery
- Improves running technique
- Reduces chances of injury
- Builds strength
- Increases flexibility and improves mobility
- Boosts wellbeing
- Builds stamina and endurance
- Improves breathing
If you’re simply doing yoga workouts at home, you don’t need any equipment! Just wear your IMPI running shorts, a cute matching crop and grab a towel!
Instructions: Move from one pose to the next, until you've completed all poses. Repeat the sequence, switching sides of the body where needed. Complete this flow as many times as needed.
