The Best (& Easiest) Yoga For Runners

10greenmonkey-18_JustinNamonPHOTOGRAPHED BY JUSTIN NAMON.
Here at R29 Wellness, we’ve officially hopped on the running bandwagon. It nixes stress, builds physical strength, and ups your aerobic fitness — no gym membership necessary. Running is wonderful. But, the joint stress and muscle tightness it can cause? Not so wonderful. Fortunately, our friends over at Shape have the answer: a yoga routine that stretches and soothes all those body parts that get tense from your jogging habit — hips, hamstrings, calves, and core. And, as with running, you don't need any fancy equipment for this stretch-fest. Just follow along with Shape's user-friendly video after your next run; your body will thank you in the morning.
