This is Run Better
with Yoga

Run Better with Yoga is more than just yoga for runners…

I’m Helen – and if you are a runner, of any level, looking to say goodbye to injury and get ahead in your training and performance by becoming stronger, more mobile, flexible and focussed – then you are in the right place.

Let me show you how yoga can actually improve the way we run: by enhancing strength, mobility, flexibility, posture, breathing and technique, to run feeling lighter and stronger, to go further and faster, injury-free.

I’m here to offer you a way to easily incorporate the right type of yoga into your routine, to help you feel awesome in your body and mind, feel light and strong, mobile and flexible, and able to run with ease, for fun!

I can’t thank Helen enough! My running technique has improved dramatically and is now much more stable. I am more in tune with my body and what posture will be most helpful for running and it is enabling me to run with more confidence and without pain.

After suffering with hip pain from coastal path running it was suggested I see Helen. After a thorough assessment and diagnosis I was given a targeted yoga regime which has reaped rewards. I now have minimal discomfort and am running with far more freedom – thanks Helen!

Just wanted to say thank you. I downloaded your video a few days ago and have done it several times. My core already feels stronger. I’ve been practicing yoga for 6 months or so but mostly working on flexibility and hip openers and clearly neglecting the strength element as I have suffered from recurrent niggles in my low back and hips. I’m optimistic that it if I keep at it, I will eliminate them for good.
