If you're having issues with the player:

Practicing a few yoga poses after a run, when your muscles are warm and soft, will make you feel a whole lot better the next day. Post-run yoga will decrease injuries and improve the health and strength of muscles. Also, tense muscles have trouble receiving enough blood. Stretching improves the muscles' access to healthy blood and oxygen.

Equipment: None
Style: Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Yoga for Athletes, Yoga for Runners, Yoga for Back Care

I've started a daily run-walk routine during the pandemic and have modified this due to midsole foot pain. This yoga sequence was helpful today, even if a bit challenging for my inflexible hamstrings ;)

The Pre and Post run sequences have allowed me to be able to run daily again. Previously I had knee and lower back pain that kept me from running long distances regularly. Thank you Fiji!

I've just started a couch to 5k programme. I've been really concerned about injury and have put off starting. But this class gives me confidence that I'm really taking care of my body and mind in a holistic way. I'm already enjoying being outdoors and moving fast and it works so well alongside everything I get from yoga, as well as giving me something new to bring to yoga. Namaste Fiji, and many thanks to DYWM for always having a perfect class to fit with my life.

...for me. Usually, I do a restorative class after a jog, but I decided to try this class since I’ve “graduated” to intermediate classes now. My legs feel pretty great after both the jog, and this class. Thank you!

I'm training to run a marathon and this class has helped me maintain my flexibility and recover after tempo and long runs, thanks Fiji!

If I do this class post-run, I never feel stiff later in the day. Absolutely great!
