Class Description: 

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.

Oof. I don't feel this is a beginner video. Stretches were way too deep for me.

Seems as though lots of people feel this should be rated intermediate, so we will change the level for you.

a little difficult for beginners

I consider myself an advanced beginner- I have a solid foundation but am not quite intermediate level yet, and I thought some of this was hard to follow and do. I think after doing the routine a few times, it may get easier to follow though. I do think it was a nice routine for after running.

Ever since my caesarean 6

Ever since my caesarean 6 years ago whenever I go for a jog I pay for it with sciatica-like pain radiating down from my sacroiliac joint. But I love running, so got fed up and decided to put up with it and started the couch to 5k a few weeks ago. I have, however, been doing this routine after each jog and so far I haven't paid for my jogging with pain afterwards even though I can feel the joint stiffening as usual during the run. Found this site because of your pregnancy videos (only non patronising ones I found that actually catered to pregnant women without making the stretch routine useless). So you've now helped me in two ways, thankyou. : )

Post Run Stretch
yc8 3 months ago

I have been using this video for over two years now, and a little over one year ago it became the only stretching I do after a run. It is a vital part of my running regimen, keeping me limber without overdoing the stretching. I find it easier, with time and practice, to make adjustments to the more difficult stretches so my body can handle the moves without pain. Thank you, Fiji, for making this video available!

Just what I need!

I recently injured my hip-flexor muscles, so having a set routine to stretch everything out after my run is essential. This routine felt great, both as a stretch but also strengthening those weakness created by the injuries. This is definitely in my regular rotation!

Very calming and gentle
AJMcDougall 7 months ago

Very calming and gentle practice with a nice pace. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because I felt like there needed to be a few easier options outlined. Some of the starting poses were impossible for me (very tight hamstrings) so when more advanced options were given without easier options being given, I did feel a bit silly. I basically had to take bent legs for a lot of this practice. The instructor was lovely though and the result felt good.
