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/Power Yoga, Yoga for Athletes, Yoga for Runners, Yoga for Back Care

I’m off the couch with my first run. Hoping this will help sore prevent sore muscles and build core strength

I’m not very flexible and this video seems like it would be most effective for people who have a similar level of flexibility as the instructor. It’s quite fast paced, which is less helpful for me in a post workout video.

Thank you Fiji. I love this sequence so much, it actually makes me want to run more knowing I have this to come back to!

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.
