Yoga Made For Runners 15-Hour Certificate Program
This two-day, 15-hour course teaches how yoga can be used to help runners build strong, resilient, running bodies by incorporating six key ingredients – flexibility, mobility, balance, strength, stability, and breathing – into their personal practice or teaching curriculum.
The common perception of yoga is one of people doing postures to stretch muscles, but the importance of flexibility for runners is exaggerated and can be counterproductive. The ultimate goal is to guide the student to a state of physical and psychological balance through the skillful application of yoga postures and strengthening movements.
This is not a yoga teacher-training course; there are more than enough of those. Instead, this course will provide valuable, relevant, and up-to-date information for runners, yoga and fitness teachers, or anyone else, on the benefits of yoga for runners.
