yoga for whatever your level of flexibility

Staying fit to run is not just about putting in the miles and doing strength work, it’s about recovery and repair. And most runners typically ignore this important part of their training.

This 75 minute workshop will teach you five essential yoga stretches to help your body stay flexible, which will both help you to prevent injury and to ensure peak performance.

Even if you are the type of man or woman, who has never been able touch your toes and finds the thought of sitting cross-legged torture, these postures will help to unlock tight areas. And don’t worry, they can be adapted so that even the stiffest runner will benefit.

You will also learn self massage techniques to help keep you free of typical running injuries such as plantar fasciitis, calf injuries, ITB syndrome, backache and more.

You will need to bring a yoga mat, foam roller and a self massage ball or you can purchase these from us at our online checkout.

For men and women, spaces are strictly limited.

FB run members price £9. Normal price £15.

Or buy this workshop and our Runner’s Recovery Retreat Workshop March 5th together for £25.
