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.

This was a great change of pace...

...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!

Love this

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!

What a great class!

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

A perfect follow-up !

This class is the perfect follow-up to any lower body workout. Although it's short, it's full of deep and juicy stretches for the quads and hamstrings. It makes a HUGE difference in how I feel post-run ... without it I feel stiff as a board the next day. The only thing missing is a good glute stretch at the end:) Thanks again Fiji for another amazing class !

Life changing

Thank you for these masterful classes Fiji.. I have wanted to run for years but never managed with knee problems. These 3 running classes have helped me enormously, especially the focus on alignment, hips, core, building strength. I think a large part of why I am now enjoying running so much is getting to do this class afterwards, it feels fantastic. Namaste xx

Great post run yoga flow! I

Great post run yoga flow! I loved it and the stretching it provided in my hips and legs.

Great compliment to a run

I was worried this call would be too intense after a run -- I mean I just did a workout, right? But actually it focuses on the deep stretching that feels so good after exercise. I feel much more balanced and centered after this video.

Terrific!

Great post run routine! It is so easy to just do a few perfunctory stretches and jump in the shower, but this is a much better alternative.
