Why Do Runners Need Yoga?

14 04 2016

Why do runners need yoga as a part of their training plans?

We’ve all heard before that yoga brings “balance” to the body. For a runner, this means much more than being able to stand on one foot. The poses and counterposes performed in a yoga flow contract and stretch the muscles at the same time. This will lengthen chronically shortened muscles and strengthen them on the opposite side. This will balance perceived discrepancies in a runner’s body and may also improve nerve conduction.

How does this benefit a runner?

Well…

How would you like a longer resting length of your muscles?

How would you like a longer stride?

How would you like to have less injuries and spend less time being sore?

How would you like faster race times?
