Yoga and running make a very good combo! Yoga ensures strong and flexible muscles to make our runs more pleasant and better. That’s why more and more athletes are adding yoga sessions to their training schedules.
Yoga goes hand in hand with a Mindful Run®
Both Yoga and Mindful Run® are about your body and mind. Especially if it’s combined with conscious breathing techniques. Not only will you become more flexible, but you’ll also improve balance and focus. If you’ll apply yoga exercises regularly, you will experience what it does for your body and mind.
Yoga benefits for runners
1. Improved body perception. Very helpful for trail runners to notice changes in running conditions, like an uneven surface.
2. Improved body awareness. Useful to recognize body signals earlier and prevent overtraining or injuries.
3. Better mobility and flexibility for the whole body, so less stiffness after an intense workout.
4. Improved breathing and breath control, which will help you sustain longer runs and manage your energy levels.
5. Improved Mental Focus.
Clear your mind and keep in shape
Running is a great sport to stay fit, but it can be an injury-prone sport as well. With yoga, you will make your body more flexible and stronger. And you will also improve balance.
