Yoga For Runners


The impact of running can take a toll on your knees, hips and lower back, which can result in tightening of your musculature, limited movement and slower running speeds.


Incorporating Hot Power Yoga as part of your training can support your running performance in several ways:


  • A Hot Power Yoga class involves at least an hour of stretching in heat. The increase in flexibility you will gain will not only reduce your chances of injury but also increase your overall flexibility which means your running strides become longer and your running style more free and flowing. You can find out more detail about how Hot Power Yoga increases flexibility here.

  • Practicing Hot Power Yoga not only encourages flexibility but also increases strength throughout your body. With a stronger core - in its widest sense - the muscles that are most active in running are better supported, your entire musculature is better able to cope with the impact of running, and your primary running muscles are able to move more freely - uninhibited by weakness of other muscles.

  • The deep, diaphragmatic breathing technique used in a Hot Power Yoga class helps increase lung capacity and regulate your breathing. As an athletic style of yoga, your heart rate rises whilst you practice so you become trained to breathe more deeply and effectively whilst you’re exercising.

  • Runners also say they experience fewer aches and pains after running and find their focus improves. But, there’s only one way to find out the effects of Hot Power Yoga on your running, and that’s to try it!


With our 30 days for £40 unlimited Hot Power Yoga intro offer, you can judge the effects for yourself in just 1 month.
