Kimberly Fowler, creator of “Yoga for Runners,” will be offering a workshop on December 7th from 1 to 3 pm at the YAS Venice location. Having practiced yoga for many years and competed in marathons and triathlons all over the world, Kimberly was able to apply her unique expertise to create the “Yoga for Runners” program.

From her own experience as a runner and athlete, Kimberly understands a runner’s need for proper body alignment, balance, and flexibility. She wants runners to be more conscious about how the inflexibility of their bodies can lead to injuries. During the workshop, she will talk about how to apply the flexible aspects of yoga to help alleviate injuries to the body.

Participants will also have the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the ways that yoga can help to provide added endurance and strength while releasing tense joints and muscles.

Kimberly explains that “I am an athlete first, a yogi second, I want to help people who are just starting to run, or my favorite, want to run a Marathon.” She continues by expressing the hope that she can “give you the tools and inspiration to start a great training program to help you run faster and keep you injury free!

The cost of workshop – $35 for advanced booking and $50 at the door – will include a Yoga for Athletes® DVD, a towel, wristband and entry to a raffle draw. All proceeds from the workshop will help fund the Women’s Sport Foundation, a non-profit organization whose mission is “to advance the lives of girls and women through sports and physical activity.”
