A basic understanding and awareness of what happens in your body when you run is important to successful running. Having the answer to such key questions as “why did I get injured and how do I get well?” or “why do I repeatedly injure the same part of my body?” will help you understand the effect of running on your body.
A Runners’ Yoga class is, at heart, an educational seminar, where information on movement, anatomy and physiology is shared so the student develops an understanding of the appropriate and efficient functioning of the body. Having the answers to important questions about running and the body will go a long way in helping us enjoy consistent and pleasurable running.
This basic knowledge is the first step in building awareness, which is the first step in learning how to steer clear of potential injury, thereby maximizing our running potential.
