I have always been a very inflexible person.  My legs are 45 inches long from hip to floor so you can only image the strain running has on that much hamstring. I could not touch my toes for the first 19 years of my life. Since I knew yoga was something that would not come easy to me, I resisted giving it a try.  It wasn’t until I incurred yet another running injury that I finally gave in.  I’ve been practicing now for about 4 years.


I prefer Ashtanga flow style yoga, but I do practice Yin Yoga which is deeper stretches.  While I have had phenomenal yoga teachers in the past, I have not found one I love enough to pay the high prices in Reston, VA.  I currently practice on my own, which saves me money and time.  I can roll out of bed and practice before work, rather than driving to a studio.

My hope is to introduce my readers to new poses, flows and free online videos that will compliment their fitness routines and running.
