10 Yoga Poses for Runners


10. Tree Stand > Savasana

From tree stand, come to a sitting position on the floor, then recline, so that you’re lying on your back. Place your arms a little bit away from your sides and your feet about hip-width apart. Relax, and let your legs rotate outward. Focus on relaxing all of your muscles, from the top of your head down to your toes as you take deep, relaxing breaths.

Savasana might not seem like an important posture, but it’s just as beneficial as any other in this series. While your body is in savasana, your muscles are processing all of the stretching and strengthening work that you just did. Relax, and let your body recover.

Do you have any post-run yoga postures that you practice? I’d love to hear about your yoga poses for runners!

These all look very doable - even for a beginner. Thanks.

the funny thing is when I used to do sports I did several of these poses and I had no idea they were yoga until now....welp now i need to get back into shape, and it looks like these are coming back as well.
