Taught by myself, Helen Clare, the morning classes will be dynamic, strengthening and energising Vinyasa Yoga. The sessions will wake up and warm up the body ready to run and get the most from your day. The evening classes will be restorative Yin, to stretch out tension accumulated through running (and life in general!), helping you to relax, unwind and recover faster.
Suitable for all levels, I’ll guide you through a series of yoga classes, that will not only benefit you as a runner, in terms of strengthening key muscle groups and enhancing flexibility and range of motion, breathing and alignment – but, will show you how to take key yoga principles into your running, to help you run more efficiently and safely, reducing the risk of injury, increasing the ease and the fun. Ultimately, running safer, further and faster!
This retreat can be a great introduction for beginners to yoga, as well as building on knowledge for those with more experience and wanting to develop a home practice to aid with running.
