If you're having issues with the player:

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 is perfect for those that run and directly addresses the common physical complications that arise. This yoga sequence will keep you injury-free and running for many years to come.

If you love this class you will also love Fiji's post run class

I do a short warm up, go jogging and then do this practice (or the other post-run one). I'm paranoid of incurring injuries due to knee and feet issues, so I feel this is the best way to prevent them.
