Class Description: 

Dedicated runners are constantly trying to find better ways to take care of their bodies to prevent injuries. Too many runners suffer from bad backs and knees, often forcing them to abandon running altogether. This yoga class for runners directly addresses the common physical complications that arise, keeping you injury-free and running for many years to come.

Very energising!

I love the combination of a fast pace with relatively easy poses. It's a very energising session, it feels great in the middle of the day.

Day After Hike
eruvande 1 month ago

I took my first strenuous, lengthy hike of the season yesterday, and woke up this morning with horribly stiff and sore legs and hips.

After this practice, everything feels functional again. Still sore, of course, but I can move at a normal pace instead of in slow motion.

As a (former) runner with hip problems, there is no equal

I started running distances almost ten years ago at around age 30. I was born with a rotation in my hip and it turn rotates my legs and knees, and running distances on hard surfaces was too much for my joints: I ran one full marathon and a couple halves and have since then been dealing with injury after injury. I thought I was done with running until I started doing yoga a couple weeks ago, starting with this. First, I've tried a number of routines since then and this is the absolute best for my hips, legs, and lower back (which I've had separate problems with). Second, I've tried a number of different instructors on this site, and Fiji is unparalleled. She is the most descriptive and creates a calming environment to go deeply into poses with (as a beginner I also do her 45min Intro to Power Yoga). I now do this every other day and I feel great. THANKS TO FIJI!

Good class, but too fast

I'm working into longer distances and am now more than ever prone to injury, so I gave this a go. The flow is too fast for me and I found myself losing form to keep up with the pace of the course. I'm sure over time though I will get better and more used to this video. Thank you Fiji!

Keeps my running injuries at bay

I run quite long distances most days, and when I feel a twinge in my knees or hips, I do this video. I always feel on top form again on my next run. Thanks for keeping my running on track Fiji!

Great class for men!

This was the first class I tried on DYWM, and it made me a follower of this site! I've been doing this about once a week for the past 6 months. This class has really helped open my hips and loosen my IT bands. As a bulky guy, I love this class because it is light on bends and folds and (when necessary) modifications were intuitive for me and I continue to work toward the full stretch that Fiji demonstrates. Also a great video if you've never done any yoga before. Thank you, Fiji!

Too difficult for my injured knees
scarahliz 11 months ago

I thought this would be good for me as I'm beginning running with an old knee injury. However there was too much pressure put on individual knees at times and I had to stop. I think, though, that if you do not have previous injuries, this would likely be an excellent class. There are a lot of good strength moves in here.

awesome :)

First yoga session I ever did and first ever on this site. Really good and simple and easy to follow along. I surprisingly feel better than I thought I would - was sort of anti-yoga before. Excited for the next video I try.

Awesome Class
