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

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

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 !

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

Yes, I feel the same way. I have bad knees and flat feet so avoided running for years. I've taken it up recently and combined with this yoga I haven't experienced any problems. Happy running!

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

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.

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.

Awesome post-run routine. Added it after my morning runs because I am terrible at stretching afterwards on my own. Thank you!!
