Q: But I'm too tight to do yoga??!!
A: No you're not! Yoga is for every runner and everyone! Remember, I was once the "not flexible one"...yoga rewards consistency, so you will see improvements even if you just stretch twice a week. However, yoga is also about much more than "perfecting" a pose. The best part of yoga is that there will be some pose that YOU love doing and is easily accessible for YOU. Also, you will be a healthier and thus faster/happier runner!
Q: Can I get Ann to teach a pre-/post-run routine to my team/sorority/calculus study group? Or organize a yoga session or two for my office?
Q: But I went to yoga before and it was boring?
A: Styles of yoga vary widely by teacher! A yoga class exists out there that is RIGHT for you. I teach vinyasa (or "flow") yoga which concentrates on moving fluidly between poses. I love integrating creative sequencing into my classes so no two are ever alike.
I have a background in ashtanga, iyengar, anusara, and power yoga, so I pull from all "methods" to create the best class for the group I am currently teaching.
