ONLINE: Runners Yin / Yang Yoga

These monthly workshops are specifically tailored for the needs of runners, helping to build strength and develop balance, and find deep release for tight hamstrings, hips and quads. The workshops also create space to cultivate a sense of inner focus and mastery of the breath.
Each workshop begins with a meditation to focus the mind, as well as breathwork to both support our exercise and calm the mind.  We will then move through an active yang flow, focussing on building strength in the legs and core, as well as working on balance.
We will then move into a yin practice. Yin yoga is a fantastic complementary exercise for runners – in yin we hold poses for longer periods of time (around 5 minutes) in order to create a slow and gradual release in tight areas of the body.
Practising yin can help to increase your range of motion and finds a deep release in the fascia (connective tissues) – promoting longevity for your running.
Yin also encourages stillness and inner focus – helping us to tolerate discomfort and stay calm when the going gets tough – key attributes for any distance runner.
