yoga for runners
What if we told you there was a way to run better, faster, and stronger that doesn't involve time at the gym or more miles on your legs? Yoga for Runners is an innovative stability- and mobility-focused class for runners and athletes of all levels and experience. Longtime yoga teachers and run coaches Steph Creaturo and Blakeney Schick take traditional yoga poses and push them one step further by providing assists and explaining the purpose behind each pose so you know exactly how they benefit your running. If you’re injured or want to remain injury-free, consider this an impromptu anatomy lesson about all the muscles you use on your daily run. Yoga for Runners isn’t just about flexibility—it’s about discovering a new way to bulletproof your running.
STRONG & STABLE
Learn to integrate traditional yoga poses, strength work, and traditional meditation in a way that works for your body. This vigorous-to-hard class is appropriate for people who want to add a strength component to their yoga practice; athletes; people who want to learn to control their hyper mobility; and people leaving PT who are cleared for activity again. Basics and Intermediate offered. See the schedule for details.
Learn how to use your core more efficiently and effectively through targeted strength work in your yoga practice. We're going beyond the abdominals, looking at the whole core - from the knees to the shoulders! This class is appropriate for all levels, including post-partum, beginners, and those working with injuries.
Yoga And Core Integration
This takes the core work that Angela is passionate about and integrates it into a yoga practice. Angela teaches you how to effectively isolate the core, and strengthen it statically. From this strength and awareness of your core, she then expands your knowledge to how the limbs are connected to the core through more dynamic movement. Please note there is weight-bearing on the hands in this class and resistance bands are used. Move through a smart, well-crafted sequence with mindful attention to alignment, breath and core.
