10-minute yoga for runners sequence to help those aches and pains

In this week’s ‘Yoga For…’ series, yoga expert Jessica Stewart, demonstrates a yoga for runners sequence help lower the risk of injury and even help your run technique 

Welcome back to our ‘Yoga for..’ series. This week we have partnered with expert Jessica Stewart, yoga teach at 3tribes. In this 10-minute yoga for runners sequence, Jessica brings you gentle but essential moves that can be done either before or after your run (or both). Let us know what you think on Twitter and Facebook.

This is a Yin Yoga class perfect for a deep post run release of tight ankles, legs and hips. Yin Yoga is a specific form of yoga that invites you to ‘passively stretch’, in other words, to not force the lengthening of the muscle fibre, but rather to use deep breath and gravitational pulls and staying in the poses for a little longer to widen the connective tissue as well as the muscles that contract during running. This sequence will also suit post-run to release tension in the muscles.

Equipment needed: 

  • Strap or bathrobe belt
  • Yoga brick
  • Yoga block
  • Spair yoga matt rolled up

Sequence

  • Supta hasta padangustasana A and B – 2 minutes)
  • Dangling / passive forward fold – 3 minutes)
  • Supine twist (option for heel on wall)
  • Kneeling toe squat and lifting the thighs to release front of ankle
  • Supta virasana
