ANNOUNCEMENT!

Yoga Made For Runners
15-Hour Instructional Program

What’s this?

It’s a 2-day, 15-hour course for devotees of running and/or yoga. If you’re interested in what happens at the intersection of running and yoga, you’ll find this program to be extremely informative and useful. This isn’t a “teacher training”, it’s for everyone, but if you do aspire to teach yoga to runners, the information presented in this course is something you’ll need.

What will we be doing?

Over the 15 hours, we’ll do about 4 hours of yoga. The rest of the time I talk a lot and give participants tons of relevant information on

  • Functional anatomy for runners
  • How to use yoga to build strength, mobility, and flexibility
  • Injury prevention and the causes of common running injuries
  • Harnessing the breath and learning how to breathe effectively while running

I weave together the yoga practice and lecture, so it’s not dry, boring, information, but real life strategies and directly applicable information to build strength and flexibility and reduce your injury risk.

Who can participate?

Everyone and anyone: from runners who’ve never done yoga, to yoga teachers who have never run, and everyone in between. The only pre-requisite is an enthusiastic and curious mind and an interest in what yoga can do for runners.

Note for Yoga Teachers: The running market is huge and overflowing with tight, injured runners who need yoga. So why aren’t you appealing directly to them and their needs? Yoga is an easy sell to runners, but it’s far more than stretching hamstrings and doing hip openers (teaser: in the course you’ll learn two reasons people with chronically tight hamstrings probably don’t need to stretch them).

Other stuff you’ll receive

  • A fifty-page training manual
  • Runner’s yoga DVD
  • Resistance band for hip strengthening
  • Awesome certificate of completion

The result

You’ll feel happy and fulfilled, and walk the earth with a renewed vigor and purpose.
