Yoga For Runners

It’s DeKalb Corn Classic & Bank of America Chicago Marathon training season! If you want to be a better runner, jogger or walker, take care of the vehicle that carries you. Like a car, it’s important to upkeep preventative maintenance, change the tires (shoes) and keep machinery greased up (fluid to muscles and joints). If I had a dollar for every time I’ve been told, “I don’t do yoga. I run”…I’d not only be able to pay for every race I want to run but it’s been a motivating factor in designing this class for you. My first love was running as a previous NJCAA cross country and track athlete. If you love something enough and take the time to do it, you’ll find the time to rehab and prehab. Yoga can ABSOLUTELY be incorporated into a routine for the athlete, couch to 5k enthusiast or daily power walker. It has the potential to develop into a recovery day, cross training and conditioning, strengthening, or mental endurance challenges to get you to your finish line safely. Come Find What Moves you.

This first of three sessions will give students the knowledge and ability to heal themselves and others. On completion of this first session, you will become a Level I Reiki Practitioner. The following two sessions, Reiki II and III, will increase one’s ability to channel the energy, as well as learn techniques to enhance your Reiki practice. Amy Whelan has been a third degree Reiki practitioner, aka Reiki Master, since 2000. She recently became a registered yoga teacher.
