8 Yoga Moves for Runners

November 10th, 2016

Running outdoors has been a love of mine since I was a teenager, and it’s actually through running and my search for more flexibility and peace of mind that I found my way to a consistent yoga practice over 15 years ago. After all this time, I still find running to be the perfect activity to complement my daily yoga practice.

Check out my go-to sequence to unwind after a run on the trail. If you’re short on time, hold each pose for 5 breaths and move onto the next. If you’ve got a few extra minutes, linger in each pose for 10 full breaths. Either way, this quick sequence of yoga moves can help you cool down, increase flexibility, and bring more stability (and love!) to your joints.

  1. I’ve got some tension in my lower back today, so these all look great right about now! Love that King Arthur pose for stretching the legs.

  2. This is a great post! Yoga is so good to do in combination with running! I started doing yoga this spring and it improved my running and recovery time so much!
