We’ve partnered with Runa Yoga for our upcoming 2017 Spring, Summer, and Fall sessions.

 

Yoga for Runners is a great way for runners, triathletes, and other endurance athletes to gain flexibility, balance, and core strength. The movements in each class help to release tightness in areas commonly hyper tense in runners.

 

Yoga for Runners is also perfect for newbies to yoga to more experienced yogis. Run Yoga instructors provide multiple modified options for each pose allowing participants to push themselves to the degree they feel comfortable pursuing. Classes become progressively more challenging.

 

The sessions attract a variety of ages from 15 to 75. Usually at least several men are in each class…so don’t be scared gentlemen:)

About the Instructors: 

Jessie Erickson

As a dancer, yogi and teacher Jessie Erickson always knew she was meant to help facilitate change in the world. As early as 3 years old, Jessie has immersed herself in dance and Pilates and through that has honed a great body awareness. In 2005 she discovered yoga in the lush jungles of Costa Rica and it has since become her daily path.  She brings kindness and nurture to her classroom which creates an environment that fosters growth through their curiosity. Jessie believes that we can make the world a better place by making our lives better. She hopes to enlighten and lighten those around her through a fun imaginative class designed to help build strength, flexibility and concentration in a non-competitive environment.
