Yoga For Runners

I wrote last week that I've been taking a Yoga Body Sculpt class at my gym.  On top of coming out of the class feeling somehow energized and relaxed at the same time, I think I've found new favorite sequence.  This stretch feels AMAZING after a long run, so I thought I'd share...

1. Cobra Pose

2. Into Child's Pose

3. Into Downward Dog

4. Into Runner's Lunge

5. Into Warrior I

6. Then Warrior II

7. Reverse Warrior

8. And finally into Side Angle

And then repeat for the other side.  By the time I've been through it twice (one for each side) I've pretty much stretched everything I need to stretch after a long run, and I feel FAN-FREAKIN'-TASTIC!
