Yoga Tips for Runners

by Amy Cooper, CYT and Ayurvedic Wellness Coach

  • Nasal Breathing. It provides maximum respiratory efficiency, and will leave you feeling calm and relaxed.
  • Hydrate! Drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces per day for 2 weeks, EX: 140lb, drink 70 ounces of water (9 glasses) per day. Sip warm water/room temp. throughout day.
  • Take time after a run to check in with yourself. Cool down, jog at a relaxed pace or walk, let your run settle in to your body. Stretch, allowing excess lactic acid to be flushed into your bloodstream and eliminated from your body.
