Yoga Poses for Runners
By Ross K
When it comes to running you wouldn't think yoga applies but you would be wrong. Most people think yoga and meditation is just good for stress relief however, it does so much for strength and flexibility. Being flexible and strong will prevent injuries and will allow you to enjoy running for years to come. There are many types of yoga however Prasara works well for runners or any other athlete. Runners and athletes are constantly moving this movement or flow is what makes Prasara yoga different. Prasara focuses on the movement between poses unlike other forms of yoga. It's almost like dancing. With Prasara Primer you will:
Increase your strength and mobility
Develop proper breathing techniques
Develop and lean and toned body
Improve your overall mindset
Prasara yoga has 5 different flows which are designed to target different athletic movements. When practiced in order you will be building a stronger body and mind. Each flow has different levels of difficulty and motion. As you master each one you will get smoother in your execution. Since doing Prasara I have become more focused not only while running but in my overall view on life. So last June I ran my first 1/2 marathon in Seattle's Rock N Roll marathon for Team in Training. Not only did I accomplish but with my new found outlook on life but I raised over $10,000 to find a cure for cancer. Running is something I will continue doing as long as I am healthy and with Yoga for runners I don't doubt it!
I am a yoga instructor and want to share my yoga knowledge here in this platform. If you want to learn yoga, then i must prefer you to join Yoga Teacher Training in India where you will learn deep aspects of yoga.
