Happy New Year everyone! It's the time of year when people are starting to run again after the holidays or maybe are starting to run for the very first time. Either way, I wanted to offer you a short (13min) yoga sequence that will target the large muscle groups you use when running and will keep you limber as you increase your miles.
A few things to keep in mind:
1. This is a sequence meant to be done right after your run and therefore it is assumed that your body is already warmed up. Do not do this sequence without a proper warm up.
2. Do not push into positions that cause sharp pain or strain. All these poses are meant to give you a pleasant stretch. If that's not the case, please modify the position to make it more gentle.
3. I'll remind you on the video but you will find this more enjoyable if you keep breathing:) You don't have to follow my instructions to breathe in or out with a certain movement but at least keep a gentle breath and avoid holding your breath.
