FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHO CAN TAKE RUNNER’S YOGA?
Runner’s Yoga is appropriate for anyone with an open mind, an adventurous spirit and a healthy body. You don’t need to be flexible to take a Runner’s Yoga class, any more than you need to know how to cook to take a cooking class. You don’t even have to be a runner. You will build flexibility, strength, bodily awareness and proficiency with the postures as you practice.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I COME TO CLASS?
Students make good progress attending one class per week, but you can attend as many classes as your schedule and energy allows. Remember, Runner’s Yoga is meant to compliment your running.
WHAT ABOUT ANY RUNNING INJURIES I MAY HAVE?
Do not attend class if you have an acute injury. Any injuries, running related or not, should be thoroughly assessed by a doctor before attending a Runner’s Yoga class. When you’ve been given permission to resume exercising, yoga can be an excellent tool for rehabilitating the injured area.
WHAT ABOUT ANY SERIOUS MEDICAL CONDITIONS I MAY HAVE?
If you are pregnant, or have any of the following medical conditions, please have a doctor’s approval before taking a Runner’s Yoga class (or any exercise routine): High blood pressure, diabetes, epilepsy, any recent surgery, joint injury, and glaucoma.
