10 Yoga Poses for Runners

  • 4 of 11

wide leg forward bend

3. Triangle > Wide Legged Forward Bend

Leave your feet apart, widening your stance a little bit further, and turning your feet so that the toes of both feet point inwards ever so slightly. Place your hands on your hips, lengthen your spine, and bend at the waist, bringing the top of your head toward the floor. Place your hands on the floor, and breathe. If you want to go further, you can grab hold of your heels and gently pull your head toward the floor.

Come out of this pose just like you did standing forward bend: one vertebra at a time, with an inhale before raising your head to neutral.
