Wholistic Running and yoga are perfect complements to each other. Both strengthen body and mind and create balance with basic exercises and relaxation techniques. By bringing attention to correct postural alignment and body awareness, they also reduce injuries and help you move with more ease and greater joy.
Wholistic Running and yoga help calm and strengthen the mind bringing greater awareness to the body, which will translate off the mat and onto the trail or road. When the mind is calm and you are in the present moment, a meditative state occurs. This increases joy, clarity and purpose. When muscles are released and the core engaged, you will perform better and longer. Learning how to let go, culminate peace and move effortlessly will allow you to live an active lifestyle with greater happiness and optimal health.
