09 Jun Do Yoga, Run Faster
What if I told you that if you do yoga, you will run faster?
Most elite runners spend hours on grueling training runs, with hundreds of miles under their belts before race day. Ann Mazur, an elite runner with a surprisingly low weekly mileage, seeks to challenge these training methods through the addition of thoughtful yoga practice.
In this TED Talk, Ann shares her unexpected method for training for long-distance running by way of yoga. She also includes demonstrations of the most useful yoga poses for runners.
