BECOME A STRONGER, LESS INJURY-PRONE RUNNER
There's nothing like an injury to cause you frustration and set your training back.
There's also nothing like that feeling of flow and speed when your body is responding and performing.
Whether you’re looking for injury prevention or peak performance the health of your hips and the associated muscles and joints is not just important, it’s essential.
Runners often suffer from overuse injuries due to the repetitive nature of movements on a single plane of motion. Over time, this can result in imbalances in both the muscles and joints causing the body to compensate. Muscles become shortened and flexibility, fluidity, stride length and of course speed, are lost.
Combine the effects of running with bouts of sitting and tight hips are the almost unavoidable result. Without remedial action to lengthen and stretch these muscles, the pelvis can tilt, causing the knees, spine and ankles to be literally pulled out of alignment.
Yes, ankle or shoulder pain can be the result of tight muscles around the hips.
Yoga not only helps you relax tight muscles and builds strength in both the core and more subtle ‘balancing’ muscles, but can be used to target specific areas of concern.
The result: improved flexibility, range of motion, muscular strength, endurance and speed.
