Regular yoga supports the development of flexibility and resilience. Good mobility of ligaments and tendons as well as supple muscles are prerequisites for what is important to runners: speed and freedom from injury.
Running puts significant stress on the skeletal and musculoskeletal systems, often leading to tension and pain. Without complementary exercises, it's easy to experience muscle shortening and troublesome movement restrictions. Yoga exercises help stretch muscles, increase flexibility, deepen breathing and stimulate all bodily functions. Relaxation and regeneration are also greatly improved. With yoga you can prevent strains and muscular problems, or in acute cases you can also work on these problems.
British yoga teacher Lexie Williamson specializes in the use of yoga exercises in an athletic context. In this book, she presents numerous exercises specialized for runners that will help you achieve your training goals and keep your body supple. In the process, you'll simultaneously strengthen your health and zest for life, deepen relaxation, and - most classically - calm your mind.
"Mit Yoga Besser Laufen" is also well suited for yoga novices and offers all runners a variety of suggestions and easy-to-perform exercises that are a good complement to classic stretching.
