Jessica Greenfield instructs the following:
  • NYRR Yoga for Runners | Five Week Series at Pure Yoga East
  • In partnership with Pure Yoga, we’ve designed NYRR Yoga for Runners – a five-week program tailored to runners that helps meet the needs of their bodies as they prepare for, and after they finish a race. Through this program, runners will learn how to leverage yoga techniques to strengthen the core, increase range of motion, and train the body and mind, to improve athletic performance and prevent injury.

    The typical runner experiences a great deal of pounding, tightening, and shortening of the muscles leading up to a race, and not enough restorative, elongating, and loosening work pre- and especially post-race. The NYRR Yoga for Runners classes focus on building strength, improving breath control and mastering mental focus pre-race, and restorative techniques post-race to help runners more quickly and safely get back to training for their next challenges.

    Classes are open to all skill levels – allowing runners to learn the yoga basics, build on the skills they already have, and/or develop a stronger yoga practice. In the five-week program, the first four sessions (pre-race) focus on body preparation and mental clarity before the big day. The fifth class is a post-race celebratory practice with intention to regenerate and restore.
