Gonna take up yoga, for one reason or another, dpoing it on one of my race nights. I dont think it will but is yoga likely to have any adverse effects on my running either good or bad?

If you miss a run to do yoga then I guess it could hinder your running slightly.

If you could do it in addition, it would probably help you.

Depends on how often you train though. Pilates is also a good one for non running nights.

Yoga would be great for you. It will make you more supple hence less prone to injuries.

i do bikram yoga about 2-3 times a week. it's the one for masochists--you do it in a 105*F room. it has helped my running in terms of endurance, since i can go longer as i get hotter. once i start marathon training i will have to do one class a week--no time.

do it!

I've just started pilates - once a week jobby - it's blinking hard trying to do slow controlled movements with that breathing, abs get in a right old dither so I suspect it'll be doing great stuff for the core which can only help running. There's dynamic yoga and iyenga yoga on the class schedule too which sound a bit scary to me.

I'm all for combination training - yoga, pilates plus running is a fantastic recipe. I recommend all runners to practise yoga/pilates at least 3 times a week.
