YOGA FOR RUNNERS.jpg

I use yoga to frame and organise themes and topics important to all avid runners. These sessions cover effective breathing techniques to improve your stamina, stretching methods for injury prevention, and various adaptations of mental strategies when battling through pain and discomfort.

 

The complete program is divided into 5 weeks. Each week we address a different aspect of how yoga can help you become a better runner.
