Best Yoga Poses for Runners

by Jacqueline Ho Content Producer

Running is one of the best exercises to burn fat, lose weight and improve overall health. It can also help reduce stress and boost self-esteem, and all you need are a pair of running shoes and a can-do attitude. Despite the benefits of running, it also brings a relatively big chance of injury—more so than many aerobic activities. If you are just getting into running or have been running for quite some time, try incorporating these yoga poses into your routine in order to prevent and alleviate pain in the legs, knees and back.
