RunSmart Yoga is about marrying flexibility, balance, and strength. Our online program is incorporates 12 workouts that span six week. It’s as effective as it is efficient. Our yoga program is designed to specifically target problem areas for runners. Online workouts last roughly 30-35 minutes (minus the first day), while our program at the Y lasts up to 1 hour.
Why RunSmart Yoga?
I, like you, love to run. Sure, I cross train and work on strength, but it’s always an afterthought to a run. I use RunSmart Yoga to supplement my running and never to replace it. Performing our online workouts is easy and if you’re more of “I need to go to a class” kind of persion, you can do that too! We challenged Yoga expert and athlete Laura Igoe to build a six week yoga program around our core movement principles and knowledge of running. She delivered. RunSmart Yoga can be performed online from anywhere, which means you can get faster from work, home, or even on the road. Load the workouts laptop, tablet, phone, or internet TV and get ready to sweat!
Do I need to know what I’m doing?
No. You’re hearing it from the horse’s mouth. I started this program with little to no knowledge of Yoga movements and postures. RunSmart Yoga is a ‘learn as you go’ program. Our online program is supplemented with videos along the way to help you out, but working through the program is the best way to learn it. For our YMCA program you’ll be taught in a fun, challenging environment. As you learn to sync the movements and breath you’ll flow through this like a champ and be stronger for it.

How to Incorporate the Program:
RunSmart Yoga is designed to supplement your running and utilized as a substitute. Perform our online workouts twice a week for six weeks and/or 1x/week in person. Easy running days or complete off days are perfect for this program. For most runners, the program lasts longer than six weeks. Sloppy balance, strength, and flexibility can turn this six week journey into nine weeks or longer. Don’t rush it. Take your time.
Incorporate with other RunSmart Online Workouts
RunSmart Online offers other strength workouts; including our Run-Specific physical therapist designed ‘BaseSix Program’. Incorporating other strength workouts can be accomplished by performing RunSmart Yoga once per week, while the second strength day being BaseSix.
