Yoga for Runners with Sonya Pfeiffer

Sundays 9/20 and 9/27 2-3:15pm
Location: Be Yoga Dilworth

Sign Up Now!

This effective workshop, taught by Be Yoga’s Sonya Pfeiffer, RYT-500, integrates movement, strength and breath work to help runners excel in their sport while gaining an understanding of the physical effects of repetitive motion. Sonya has completed five marathons, including Boston; she has also completed numerous triathlons of varying lengths. Yoga for Runners is designed for those whose flexibility may be challenged, but the workshop is challenging enough for the most flexible to reap benefits. This two-part series will focus on improving balance, flexibility, power and stamina which can result in increased performance, injury avoidance and faster recovery. The sessions are tailored to all levels and will include take-home practices that can be used in conjunction with a variety of training plans.

Part One
This session will be a practical, hands-on workshop that focuses on anatomy and muscles groups that are both under and over-utilized in the discipline of running. Through a combination of discussion, breath work, and asana practice, this class will highlight the benefits of incorporating a regular yoga practice into your training schedule. Poses will not be held for extended lengths of time, so if Sunday is your long-run day, this class will not overly tax already tired muscles. Students will leave with a short take-home practice that can be used before and/or after any cardiovascular activity.
Part Two
Join Sonya for a class-based format that incorporates principles from Part One. While this session will focus on the physical benefits of yoga, such as joint and muscular flexibility, we will also explore how and why the mind matters when it comes to training and racing, and what tools a regular yoga practice can provide athletes to help improve performance. Poses will be held for longer lengths of time, so if Sunday is your long-run day, be prepared for your muscles to fatigue sooner than on an average day. Students will leave with a well-rounded take-home practice that includes key poses for areas of the body that are most over-used or prone to injury for runners.

Investment: $40

Please bring a pen, paper, yoga mat, water bottle, and dress to practice.
