A bit of yoga to kick off hump day? Don’t mind if I do.
While my rather tight hamstrings and calves mean I can’t quite reach my toes, I’ve grown into yoga and have tried to practise at least once a week.
The early morning class at Sweaty Betty in Notting Hill as part of #SBBloggerBootcamp reminded me to keep with it and one day I may even nail those inversions. After all, I’m not all about cardio (although I do love it). The slow flow of yoga punctuated with stationary moves that look impossible push my body not to mention force me to stretch out those muscles which I often neglect to do post-run. It’s little wonder that many professional sport teams are incorporating yoga as part of their fitness schedule.
Let’s just say if you want to challenge a runner, make them try a yoga class.
Massive thanks to Charlie Morgan of charliemorganyoga.com whose inspirational quote seemed to stay not to with me all day long.
Do you prefer practising yoga in the morning or the evening? Let me know below.
