runners and yoga

There are so many documented benefits to yoga for runners, ranging from improved flexibility to improved running times, to greater lung capacity and ability to combat negative thoughts while running with increased mind/ body awareness. Sage Roundtree's book, Athlete's Guide to Yoga is one of the first yoga books I picked up last year when I started to work with KSR (Katy Student's Run) kids who are training for the Houston half marathon. Her book is thorough, easy to use for beginners, and she uses real runners as models, so you have a feel for where their tightness tends to be and it relates to you.  Highly recommend it or you can glean some great info online too.

Sage's columns on balance for competitive runners.

Sage's Blog for everything from runner's yoga sequences to personal triumphs.
