yoga for runners

I often get questions from runners about what cross-training activities to do and some ask whether yoga is a good supplement to running. Yoga is excellent cross-training for runners because it improves flexibility and builds strength, which may help improve your running performance and prevent injuries. Doing yoga regularly also teaches you to breathe more deeply.

Check out these yoga moves for runners that target the major muscle groups used when running.
