What is Mike Dennison’s Runners’ Yoga?
Mike Dennison’s Runners’ Yoga is a dynamic, running-specific yoga program that includes challenging postures fused with conscious, focused breathing techniques to create a potent practice for mind and body. The Runners’ Yoga system will transform even the most inflexible and injury-prone runner’s body by returning flexibility and suppleness to the muscles, opening tight, compressed joints and stabilizing the core muscles. As well, muscles that have been weakened by injury, extreme tightness or repetitive stress will regain their dynamic strength.
The energizing and grounding core breathing will focus the mind and dramatically increase body awareness. And a psychological toughness or mental stamina is cultivated by learning to focus the mind on the breathing and body even while performing the deep stretches. This system, in particular its three founding principals, Prevention, Rehabilitation and Education, will build a body and mind that will prepare you for the mental and physical challenges we all face as runners.
