No matter the runner’s skill level, many experience pain and tightness from the jarring effects of exercise. Whether it’s poor posture, odd gait, or repetitive movement, each can spur aches and pains.
These proposed asanas may assist in stretching, healing, and honoring the muscles and ligaments that carry you into a beautiful cadence. Be sure to check with a physician or physical therapist if you experience persistent or shooting pains, or anything that may not seem right to you. The key to yoga positions is to move gently, slowly, and never force or tweak yourself into an asana.
