Yoga Improves Flexibility
Yoga lengthens and loosens your muscles and will help to improve flexibility in the hip flexors and hamstrings. The result – moving more freely with a better range of motion and less risk of injury.
Running works some muscles far more than others. Typically, runners have very strong quad muscles, but tight hip flexors and weak hamstring muscles. yoga poses work the whole body.
Yoga poses will strengthen your core, quads, hamstrings, and hip flexors turning you into an efficient running machine!
Having a good balance reduces the risk of falls and is especially helpful if you run off-road. Yoga balance poses can really help.
The constant impact of running leads to a lot of lower back problems for runners. Gentle twisting and backstretch within a yoga practice can really help relieve low back problems and prevent injuries.
