Yoga for runners
When ever designing a Yoga based program one must take into consideration a couple things.
1. What type of running is this person doing and any additional training or factors that might influence the biomechanics.
2. How does this apply to their body specifically.
From a simplified and general approach I look 3 major joints and their associated muscles: Ankles (calves, peroneals, tibialis anterior/posterior) , Hips (gluteals, hip flexors and yes hamstrings, quads and adductors) and Knees (same as hips and ankles as this is a junction for the other joints). Note: I do take into consideration the shoulders, spine and neck which easily incorporates into the yoga poses for the Ankles, Hips and Knees.
List of Poses
1) Downward Dog
2) Kneeling Lunge (and added variation with quad stretch)
4) Instense Side Stretch (Parsvottanasana)
5) Wide Leg Forward Fold
6) Heros pose or Malasana aka Garland as a substitute)
8) Bridge (supported is more gentle where as unsupported more of a strengthen/stretch)
9) Supta Baddha Konasana (lying bound angle)
10) Legs up the wall
How to Incorporate and utilize these Yoga Postures.
These can be mixed and matched but are best done as set forth here in this list. No less than 30 seconds per pose and for one sided, 30 seconds/side. Best done post run.
For a pre-run warm-up use dynamic running drills such as ankling, Marching and Skipping A & B, walking lunges, bodyweight squats, high knees.
