One Yoga Instructor’s 15 Minute Post-Run Yoga Sequence

By Betty Shein

Running is one of my many athletic pursuits. After each run, I always stretch the muscles supporting the hip joints and legs. My body tells me where to go with my post-run yoga. Strive to really FEEL and BREATHE in each pose. My alignment instructions will be limited as a result. Hold each pose for 60 seconds. During this time, meditate on your run. How did it go? How do you feel? If you start think that it went poorly, acknowledge the thought, process any improvements, note actionable changes, be kind to yourself and let it go.
