  • 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.

    Each student is taught individually; given a one-on-one lesson within a group class. This individual approach means Ashtanga Open Practice classes are a perfect fit for new and longtime practitioners. Each and every student is guided and supported in an ongoing program that offers an incredible array of strength, flexibility, and flow resulting in a practice that detoxifies, balances, and strengthens both body and mind.

    Each student is encouraged to memorize the breathing/movement sequence and develop an independent yet insightfully supported practice.
