A Practical Approach to Building Strength and Flexibility for Better Running
By Sage Rountree
Millions of runners practice yoga because it cuts injuries and leads to more fluid, enjoyable running. In her new book The Runner’s Guide to Yoga, Sage Rountree—America’s leading expert on yoga for athletes—shows runners the poses and practices that lead to stronger, healthier running.
In The Runner’s Guide to Yoga, Rountree draws on her years of coaching and yoga instruction experience to offer runners a safe and simple way to gain the benefits of yoga, even if they have never set foot in a yoga studio. Rountree highlights over 100 of the best yoga poses for runners, laying out focused routines that ease tightness in the hamstrings and hips, strengthen the core, build strength and flexibility throughout the body, and speed recovery from minor injuries.
Runners will learn dynamic warm-ups and cooldowns, poses that target typical trouble spots for runners, self-tests to determine areas of weakness or imbalance, and meditative exercises to sharpen mental focus.
Filled with color photos of actual runners, Rountree’s clear guidance, and easy-to-follow routines, The Runner’s Guide to Yoga will lead to stronger, healthier, more enjoyable running.
