Recovery for Runners with Sarah
Recovery • 47m
Yin is a style of yoga that has many physical and mental benefits for runners especially. This practice allows notoriously tight areas for runners such as hamstrings, quads and hip flexors, to slowly release as each posture (seated or lying down) is held for up to five minutes. Yin allows for a greater joint health and muscle recovery, as well as increase in range of motion. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly- yin teaches us how to learn patience and resilience, tolerate discomfort, and increases body awareness; knowing when to push harder and when to ease up are all important skills that will carry over to your running.
