Yoga for Runners: Why It’s Beneficial

Yoga practice strengthens both the key supporting muscles used in running and the underused muscles. It develops strength in the core, quads, hamstrings, and hip flexors, helping runners stay injury-free.

Flexibility: Yoga poses held for longer durations create elasticity and loosen up muscles, joints, ligaments, and connective tissues. Improved flexibility allows runners to move with more freedom and ease

Breathing: Conscious breathing is a fundamental aspect of yoga. It enhances awareness of body sensations and teaches slower, more relaxing breaths. Proper breathwork during running can reduce performance anxiety and increase oxygen intake

Posture: Efficient movement in running relies on good posture. Yoga helps elongate the spine without adding tension, allowing runners to stand taller and stronger. This alignment practice can be applied to running technique
