So you have wrapped up your Fall racing and training, and are getting ready for a more laid back Holiday season.  As you take your workouts indoors, learn how yoga can help you breathe some life into your tight and tired hips and hamstrings, strengthen the core, and reverse the imbalances created by your favorite sport.  Take advantage of the winter and get a leg up on the Spring racing season!

Winter Warmer: Happy Hips and Merry Hamstrings
In this 2 hour workshop, our resident marathoner, Nari M., will help guide you through arsenal of postures targeted for hips and hamstrings.  We will target both strengthening and stretching postures, paying extra attention to alignment, since poor biomechanics typically lead to muscle tightness and potential injuries.  As we learn to activate and use the correct muscles, we prevent other muscles from compensating and being overused.

January 12, 2015, 7 – 9 pm
Thaw and Flow into Your Spring Training
In this 2 hour workshop you will learn how to best use your time on the mat for your runner’s body.  We will go over some of the most common postures in a Vinyasa class, emphasizing their relevance for runners, and the alignment and subtle modifications you can use to make them more impactful.  You will learn how to make the most of your yoga practice both as a warm-up before a chilly run, and as a stretch for the tight muscles afterwards.

After these two workshops you can customize any yoga class to become Yoga for Runners, and “OM to your PR.”

Nari Malkhaysan croppedNari Malkhasyan
began her yoga journey 10 years ago when she first stepped on the mat seeking an escape from the stresses of her daily life. Instead, the practice made her feel more connected to life and to her true self. It gave her a new awareness and allowed her to appreciate the physical aspects of yoga as well as the mental ones. Nari received her RYT 200 training from Inner Power Yoga in Northern Virginia, and has had the good fortune to practice with teachers such as Bryan Kest and Isauro Fernandez. Her teaching is inspired by her background in Iyengar and fueled by her natural desire to marry the body and mind with breath and movement. Nari teaches with compassion, making yoga practice accessible to students at all levels, while encouraging them to challenge their limits and discover their own possibilities. Outside of her yoga practice, Nari is a vegan, a traveller, and a runner with a few half- and one full-marathon under her belt. Now she has her sights set on ultra distances. Follow her practice and her cues at NARIPOWERYOGA.COM.
