Why should hikers and trail runners practice yoga? Yoga is a great complement for hiking or trail running.  While hiking and trail running tend to shorten and tighten muscles, yoga lengthens muscles and improves flexibility.  Plus, yoga is also a great way to develop the core strength and balance essential for hiking or trail running.  A consistent yoga practice can bring your body into better alignment, stretch tight muscles, and prevent overuse injuries.

During this 2-hour workshop, we’ll explore the physical and mental benefits of yoga for hiking and trail running.  You’ll learn how yoga can:

  1. Help you warm-up before a hike or run
  2. Help your body recover after a long hike or run
  3. Prevent and treat overuse injuries common in hiking trail running
  4. Serve as a great strength and endurance cross-training workout.
  5. Develop the mindfulness and awareness to take both your performance and training to the next level
