Are you looking to kick start or restart a running practice? Join us for a 2 part series of Run + Yoga. In this workshop, you'll not only work on your running and breathing techniques, but also learn yoga postures to help strengthen and stretch running-oriented muscle groups.
We will meet for 10-15 minutes at Louisville Community Park to review running and breathing techniques that help with the endurance and motivation to run longer distances. Then, we will head out for a 2-3 mile run on the Coal Creek Trail in Louisville. The run will be followed by a yoga flow, at the studio, designed to focus strengthening and stretching the primary muscles used during running.
Class will also include breathing techniques, hip openers, core strengthening, and balance work to compliment your training and to improve your form, efficiency, and power. Using yoga as cross training will benefit your overall performance and address any imbalances which can cause injury.
This series is for all levels and perfect for training for your next or first road or trail race.
Classes are Wednesday May 16, 6 - 8 p.m. and Wednesday, May 23, 6- 8 p.m.
Investment: $35 for both classes, $20 for a single class

Cassie has been running distances since college. In 2011, she was having back problems and was told by her physical therapist that she should never run again. She realized then that there had to be another solution. That was when she really devoted her time to yoga. Yoga gave her the strength, flexibility and power to start running again. Her back pain nearly disappeared and she began training for her first half in 2012. Cassie is excited to help the Yoga Junction community learn how to stretch, breathe and strengthen key muscles to help encourage more runners to do yoga, and visa-versa.
