Whether you’ve just signed up for your first 5K, or you’re training for a marathon this spring, Yoga for Runners is for you. Designed specifically with runners in mind, this class will primarily focus on the quads, hamstrings, hip flexors, and the core. The strength and flexibility you develop on the mat can help you run more efficiently and stay injury-free. Wearing your favorite race t-shirt is highly encouraged!  Please check on-line class schedule for class dates.
Liz Dornisch, E-RYT 200, has been running for more than 25 years. Having completed numerous 5K, 10K, Half-Marathon, and Full Marathon races, she intimately understands the value of yoga as part of a balanced training plan.

PS – In lieu of Yoga for Runners this Saturday, April 16, LIz invites all runners to join her in Hot Yoga at noon : )
