Yoga & Myofascial Release for Runners

Sunday, August 25, 2019 at 2 PM – 3:30 PM

The repetitive nature of running can often cause your body to feel a bit unbalanced as you develop tightness in some areas and weakness in others. If left unchecked, this dynamic can make running uncomfortable and ultimately lead to injury. In this workshop, we’ll explore how the tools of yoga can help you restore balance and improve your durability so you can continue to run well for years to come.

Join ultra-marathoner, triathlete, coach, and Thrive Yoga teacher, Alison, and learn how yoga can compliment your training and improve your athletic performance. Expect to leave with a solid understanding of the specific yoga postures and self-massage techniques you can use to supplement your running in order to maintain the health and function of your joints, increase flexibility and range of motion, ease muscular tension, improve your strength and stability, lower your risk of overuse injuries, and maximize your recovery time.

This workshop is suitable for all types of runners at any level of experience — including those just getting started, weekend warriors, as well as both recreational and competitive athletes. No prior experience with yoga or myofascial release — or prerequisite amount of flexibility — are required. Myofascial release balls will be available for your use during the workshop.
