Yoga For Runners Course


(4 customer reviews)

The goal and purpose of the Yoga For Runners course is to enhance, improve, and deepen students’ understanding and enjoyment of running.
They are actually related more than they might immediately seem, and can perfectly complement each other. We will focus on pranayama (breathing technique) which is essential to a yoga class and can help increase lung capacity.

Yoga For Runners Course

Most people only use 70% of possible lung space. We will explore using our diaphragm and core to fill and the empty our lungs of stale air. In the Yoga For Runners course, we will also strengthen legs and lengthen out compressed muscles (including the IT band). You will finish each class by releasing tight hips and strengthening the core. And then, of course, give those abused feet and toes some much need TLC.

Objectives of Yoga For Running
Introduce students to the wonderful relationship between yoga and running. Notice how they can improve each other. To gain maximum benefit, students should be prepared to devote some time between sessions to practise the techniques taught in class.

Who’s it for?
Yoga for Runners is an eight-week course aimed at people who run and want to improve. Anyone who is looking for a low impact cross-training option. Yoga lubricates the joints – which take a pounding during a run. This is especially true in winter when due to weather and light limitations runners are forced onto pavements.The course is suitable for athletes or gym attendees with yoga experience and those who have never practised before.

No experience required. Just an interest and hopefully a passion for running.

  1. Phill Turner

    I really enjoyed this course. !!!
    The different weeks built on various techniques that I used in my running and to relieve pain and help with flexibility.
    My forward bends became less stressed and found that I was again able to touch my toes much more easily. Pigeon pose was something I had done before but really fitted in well with the other poses to help and gave a feeling of calm and a really nice stretch.

    The Yin Yoga was great, I felt like I was so relaxed afterwards.3 days ago I went for a 10k run and shaved minutes of my time. I think it really helped with breathing and stamina and ‘the engine’ to go keep going. The skills I learnt here I will put to good use in my running and my triathlon training. Olivia is great, she is a calm and centred teacher that makes you feel welcome. She explains a great deal as you go through the poses and gives different pose options if you’re not flexible like me. I would definitely recommend this course to runners and triathletes.

    I loved this course. Olivia was a great teacher with a very calm approach. It is a really good introduction for someone not used to yoga and you cover all different types and get very good tips for things that you can do at home. I thoroughly recommend this course!

    I loved this yoga for runners course! I wasn’t able to get to every session but when I did I went for the run before the class which was great fun too. The class itself was really geared for runners, so lots of lovely hip openers, toe and shin stretches and others that only runners can appreciate! I would highly recommend this course to anyone who runs or does other forms of cardio and is in need of stretching out.
    Thank you Olivia, I really enjoyed this course 🙂
