Is Yoga Really Beneficial for Runners?

The answer is simple, yes.  Yoga can help you to build flexibility, strength and balance to enable you to become a more efficient and powerful runner.

  • Increased flexibility = improved range of motion and more efficient movement
  • Increased strength = stronger muscles ( including core) and more powerful movement
  • Improved balance = greater understanding and connection to your body and more efficient movement

Runners’ Edge “Yoga for Runners” classes offer a unique opportunity to experience the synergy between yoga and running in a safe and fun atmosphere. There is not another class like it in Niagara! Each class focuses on different parts of the body to complement your running practice, including: hips, hamstrings, core, hip flexors, quadriceps, and upper body.

Be prepared to challenge yourself, learn about your body, work hard and sweat, meet new runners and have fun. It’s a great way to spend a Sunday morning with other runners.
