Yoga for Runners and Athletes with Ashlee Willaman
Yoga is not just for hippies, it's for athletes. You will gain flexibility, strength and balance as you become a better athlete. Yoga will teach you how to integrate the body, the breath and the mind in order to stay focused, even in the face of intensity.
Whether you're a runner who is interested in improving form and avoiding injury or a yogi who is interested in signing up for your first race, you can learn to run like a yogi.
"Imagine my surprise when I found myself nearly upside down with my legs 'sitting' on the wall while all the lactic acid and crud from my last hard workout miraculously cleared my bloodstream. It felt like a cleansing breath for my war-torn legs." - JOAN NESBIT MABE,1996 TRACK AND FIELD OLYMPIAN
