Whether you're completely new to running, participating in the City2Surf, a seasoned pro or somewhere in between, there's no denying the importance of stretching for recovery. When we put our bodies through any sort of training repeatedly, we require rest and recovery. If you're looking for a more active way to let your body rejuvenate, look no further – the answer is yoga.
Yoga is an ancient practice that goes beyond just a physical practice; it teaches breath awareness, mindfulness and stillness, as well as stretching and strengthening poses. Each pose or 'asana' works a different area of the body and your yoga teacher will teach you a class that balances you out from left to right and top to bottom.
So if your legs are starting to feel a little tender or maybe you just want to give them some love, try these three yoga poses for runners from expert AmyRose at The Yoga Bar.
