Yoga for Runners

with Kathryn Gongaware
$25/$20 Tula Members
All 3 sessions at $60
Rev up your running! These workshops will help improve flexibility, focus, stamina and range of motion for smoother, safer runs.
Yoga is an ideal element of cross-training - these classes in particular will emphasize alignment, engagement of the core muscles, and lengthening of the legs to support a strong, efficient stride.
We'll spend time on our hip flexors, hamstrings, quads, glutes, calves, feet, and center, to help reduce the risk of injury, complement training programs (or fun runs!), and keep you feeling fresh.
