10 Yoga Poses for Runners

  • 3 of 11

triangle

2. Forward Bend > Triangle Pose

From standing, jump your feet apart, so that they are about 4 feet apart. Turn your right toes toward the right wall and your left toes in ever so slightly. Raise your arms parallel to the floor, and on your next exhale, stretch out to the right, then tilt your torso down so that your right hand is in front of your right foot and your left hand is reaching toward the sky. You don’t want to rotate your torso at all in this position, just tilt at the waist. Stretch your arms away from each other and feel the stretch in your side, your hips, and your legs.

Stay in this posture for 10 deep breaths, then on the next inhale straighten your back, switch your foot position, and repeat on the left side. If you’re doing these yoga poses for runners as a series, don’t change your foot position after coming out of triangle posture.

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.
