Try This: Yoga for Runners

Stretch out and keep your breathing in check with this Thursday night class

Hey runners, we know how hard you train, logging countless hours pounding the pavement until your legs are ready to fall off. And right about now, we’d bet you’re looking for a way to restore and lengthen those aching muscles.

Every Thursday from 6 to 7 p.m., Enlightened Yoga Studio of South Jersey hosts a yoga for runners class. Yoga can be a great compliment to your running regimen, with stretches for loosening super-tight hamstrings, quads and hips. This class will teach you simple breathing techniques, plus how to build core strength to help you gain stamina and endurance for those extra-long distances.

Interested? You can try your first class for free. Once you’re hooked (because we know you will be), you can drop in anytime for only $12 or sign up for a four-class package for $40. Mats are available at the studio, so all you need is comfortable clothing and a bottle of water. Pre-registration is required; call the studio at 856-881-2653 or email
