This class is designed as a post-run cool down to safely stretch, lengthen and decompress the legs, hips, feet and spine; this hatha-style sequence guides runners through standing, seated and supine poses with a balance of forward folds, twists, side bends and backbends in order to address asymmetry due to running; also an excellent practice to do on recovery days, before bed or upon waking if limited on time post-run; NOT to be done immediately prior to running. Filmed at the Uniontown YMCA. 30 minutes.
60-Minute Yoga Flow
A breath-centered, vinyasa flow practice with elements of power yoga and slow flow interwoven throughout, with modifications given. This flow offers a little bit of everything, excellent for all-levels. Begin standing at the top of the mat, warm up with sun salutations, build strength and balance in standing poses, work the core, open the front body with back bends, wind down with seated forward folds and hip openers and let it all go with final relaxation (svasana). Filmed at the Uniontown YMCA.
