Join Nari Malkhasian for this six weeks series starting on Sunday Nov. 2nd! 4-5:15PM

Whether you log in dozens of miles every week or are just starting a Couch to 5K program, you have probably heard that yoga is good for runners. But who has the time for all that cross-training, right? Not so fast (unless you’re running)! Our resident marathoner, Nari M., will help you discover how yoga can make you a better runner: improve your strength, flexibility, coordination, concentration, and balance.

Through a series of 6 classes specifically tailored for runners, we will practice a sequence of postures designed to lengthen and stretch muscles used when running (hamstrings, IT band, hip flexors, tibial muscles, psoas muscles, achilles tendons, and the plantar fascia). We will work to alleviate spinal compression and build strength in the core to improve endurance and alignment during your runs. We will learn breathing techniques to help relax your body and make it more efficient.

Specifically scheduled for late Sunday afternoons, these classes are designed to be forgiving and customizable to complement and help you recover from your weekend long run. The goal of the series is to help you reverse the imbalances created by your favorite sport. Each class will have a specific focus and will build on the previous week’s practice, so as give you a complete set of tools you can use on your own to complement your runs at the end of all 6 weeks. The focus of week 1 will be hips, week 2 – hamstrings, week 3 – core, week 4 – balance, week 5 – breathing, and week 6 will put it all together, allowing you to “OM to your PR.”
