Emma facilitates regular 3 hour afternoon yoga workshops around the country and she teaches runners how to stretch and balance the major muscle groups of the body. Her aim is to teach runners a basic 45 minute yoga practice that they can continue to work with at home, with a free DVD, safe in the knowledge she has passed to them.
As a keen sportswoman and barefoot runner, Emma understands that stretching is important, but it's just as important for runners to ensure their muscles are balanced. Running doesn't work the inner and outer quads evenly. Tight ITB, overused outer quads and weak inner quads are imbalances in the legs and can lead to knee problems. Weak gluteal muscles lead to hip instability and injuries, so Emma teaches how yoga can strengthen the gluteus medius, and free the hips. Running will often compresses the spine, but yoga can teach you how to decompresses the spine and by lengthening tight hamstrings, you are beginning to positively address the physical indicators that are often connected to lower back pain.
It's all physical practice, plenty of laughter and no mumbo jumbo - come and see how yoga can take you further and faster.
