Whether you are new to yoga or have practiced for years, the Yoga for Better Running app provides you with the most effective poses that address both the physical and mental demands of the sport.
Twenty-nine poses will help you feel stronger, more balanced, and more in tune with your breathing, posture, and technique. The poses are detailed with step-by-step instruction to ensure correct execution, maximizing the physical benefits and decreasing the risk of injury. They are also categorized by body region—ankles, feet, knees, spine, core, hamstrings, and hips—to make finding the desired technique easy.
The Yoga for Better Running app includes two original sequences targeting the most common trouble areas: the hamstrings and runners’ hot spots. Highlighted by 32 images, a slide show allows you to progress through each sequence at your own speed and quickly and easily check instructions and tips. Also included is a detailed section on yogic breathing techniques to increase lung efficiency and improve running performance.
All the poses, sequences, tips, and tricks in Yoga for Better Running provide you with numerous physical and mental benefits, including body awareness, stress reduction, balance, flexibility, strength, and decreased risk of injury. With the Yoga for Better Running app, your entire running experience—endurance, strength, breathing, and mental sharpness—will be more productive, positive, and enjoyable.
This app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
I was disappointed with this app. It is just a few pictures. I wanted an app that actually talks you through the sequences. It is hard to keep flipping through the poses and maintain your breathing throughout the sequence. It would be much better if someone was talking you through and giving cues during the exercises. I never know if I'm in the correct position when I look at 1 or 2 pictures of a pose. I run 50-70 miles a week and do yoga regularly 3-4 times a week so I have experience with both. I do like the 2 sequences. This app would get 5 stars if it had videos of the sequences.
Great app provides clear and helpful instruction. Just getting back into running after 10 year layoff. Flexibility isn't what it used to be and this will really help on recovery days! Really good pictures.
Not what I expected...in a bad way
This app looked perfect to keep me limber between runs as I am just starting as a runner. However, it is just a few pictures so I have to stop my yoga to flip through to the next pose. Not exactly what yoga is about. Very disappointed. Sad I spent the dollar on it.
