Running & Yoga, by Karmady Yoga & Massage
Practicing yoga benefits your other athletic activities, particularly running. It creates not only flexibility, but balance, strength and joint support. Join Brooke Riglin, the owner of Karmady Yoga & Massage before and after the race for FREE yoga classes. Pre-race yoga will be from 6-6:45p and after the race at 7:15p. Feel free to join in at any time! All props are provided.
Yoga before the race will be focused on strength, balance and flexibility. When our muscles are tight our bodies are misaligned and not working to their capacity By stretching beforehand, you will reduce your risk of injury. Strengthening your body through a series of poses will help to create stability in your joints and warm up your muscles for running. Poses will be used that also focus on foot placement and balancing preparing you to run on uneven pavement.
Yoga after the race the yoga practice will help to release tension from sore muscles and connective tissue, bringing your body back to a happy place. This series of poses will focus on all the areas where runners tend to feel tightness, tension and soreness.
After the race, visit the Karmady Yoga & Massage tent for a FREE chair or table massage! Let the Licensed Massage Therapist know the areas that you are tight, sore or injured and they will customize a 10-15 massage just for you!
