Yoga for Runners – Practical Course

 

As a runner or any other athlete that uses the body in a consistent an repetitive way, you know that the body always adapts to the movements an exercises it is used to.

In this “Yoga For Runners” course you can learn the best yoga poses for runners or someone with decreased leg flexibility and how to adapt those poses to your body as well. You will also learn breathing techniques to help balance your nervous system and enhance your lung capacity.

Poses are demonstrated by a runner himself so that you can relate and understand how the pose may work for you.

Based on Hatha Yoga and Yin Yoga knowledge, this course is for those who want to improve their flexibility, work on their deeper tissues to prevent injuries and experience transformation within the body and mind.

It includes pose tutorials and demonstrations, breathing exercises, a full length Yin Yoga class and 5 different 15 minute sequences that you can chose to practice at your own pace.

As a bonus, you can also go deeper and understand your body according to an even older Vedic science called Ayurveda. 

There is no requirements to enroll and no previous yoga experience is needed.

Feel free to take a look through the course description and I look forward to see you inside!
