Add the benefits of runner-specific yoga to your training.

Shorten recovery time, reduce injury & increase endurance with 18 runner-specific practices.

Increase mobility and strength with RunSmart Yoga.

Created by Physical Therapist Steve Gonser & yoga instructor Laura Igoe, our Vinyasa flow practice will keep you moving and stretching those tight spots. The movements and postures used with RunSmart Yoga target common tightness and muscle imbalances in runners that result in slower running & injuries. Plus, yoga can improve flexibility and coordination, build core strength, strengthen your lungs and help you push through the mental challenges that come with running.

Build Strength

Focusing on micro-movements and micro muscle groups during yoga helps runners build strength in places that are often missed — such as hip flexors, feet, ankles and knees. These sometimes overlooked muscle groups stabilize the body and give runners a stronger core baseline of strength to draw from when running.

R

Increase Endurance

According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, yoga benefits many aspects of cardiovascular health. Yoga has been shown to lower blood pressure, blood cholesterol and blood glucose levels, as well as heart rate, benefits which directly correlate to increasing endurance on your runs.

Enhance Mindfulness

The breathwork element of yoga helps runners efficiently moderate breathing on long runs and condition the lungs to withstand the stresses of running. Practicing mindfulness helps runners become grounded and focused when becoming fatigued on challenging long distance races. This helps runners stabilize their breathing and recenter when the going gets tough.

Flexibility Training is your key to enhancing endurance and speeding recovery in your running routine.

Adding yoga to your cross-training routine will help you become a better runner and give your health a boost. The cardiovascular benefits combined with strong, focused breathing keep your heart rate and oxygen intake steady and strong on long runs. 

Enhanced flexibility and mobility achieved through the runner-specific stretches and poses in RunSmart Yoga provide a protective element to your muscles, tendons and joints that minimize the time you need to take off to recharge between runs, reducing running injuries and pain while running.
