5 Awesome Yoga Resources For Runners
I am also cardio addict. I also love the idea of yoga. Although I know it’s good for me I find it super difficult to slow things down and just stretch. However, I can’t deny how great Yoga is for my body. Not that I am in the thick of marathon training, my body needs to be stretched and cared for more than ever! Yoga does two main things: builds strength and flexibility–those two things are crucial to becoming a better runner.
I have compiled several expert resources that details which types of Yoga poses that are perfect for runners!
