Yoga for Runners

I can’t go all month without mentioning how awesome yoga is for running, right? My goodness, some deep stretching makes a world of difference…

The other day I stumbled on this yoga practice by Goldie Kaufenberg, a Boston-based teacher who is lululemon’s SeaWheeze yoga ambassador this year. After this morning’s run—my 25th of the month, might I add—I rolled out my mat and spent 48 minutes stretching out every muscle that needed a little extra attention. In short, it was awesome, a practice that I’m bookmarking for sure, and one that I recommend to all you runners out there (and to anyone really). Enjoy.


p.s. WordPress just informed me that this is my 500th 12 Months of Lent post, ahhh! Crazy, right? Break out the bubbly!

  1. Thanks for posting this! I am a runner too and love how yoga helps balance out my running. So on day 25 of my own personal “40 Days of Yoga” challenge, I was so happy to have a new sequence to try. I must say, it was perfect! Lots of stretching and some strength building too. Really, really, ahhhhh-some.
