Yoga Workout Playlist No. 2

Yoga Workout Playlist No. 2

Does running make anyone else crave yoga?
Maybe I’m crazy, but all I can think about besides literally drinking a gallon of water after a long run is dropping into pigeon or triangle pose.
Tight hip flexors from running = yoga ASAP.
Yoga Workout Playlist No. 2 from Hungry Gator Gal (@spotify playlist included)

Spotify playlist:

I go to power yoga in the evenings twice per week, but I often take 10 to 15 minutes to practice on my own before I go to bed. I put this playlist on, stretch it out and I’m out like a light bulb. Try it if you have issues winding down after a long day. It might be just what you need. 🙂 

P.S. Check out my Spotify profile and my playlists page if you like what you hear. I pay $5 per month as a student to have access to a bazillion songs with zero ads. I have the ability to follow and make as many playlists as my heart desires. It’s TOTALLY worth the money. Ask for a Spotify Gift Card $30 (affiliate link!) for your b-day or a holiday. 🙂

Questions:

  1. What are your favorite stretches for pre- or post-run? (My favorite pre-run stretch is the toy soldier.)
  2. What are your favorite yoga poses? (I’m a fan of crazy arm balances in addition to stretches.)

I fell in love with the group practice of yoga after trying one Vinyasa class in May at the University of Florida. Practicing has quickly become my favorite form of stretching and recovery after completing rigorous strength training workouts. As for running, I’ve never been a huge fan. However, interval walking and running treadmill workouts have become my choice for cardio as of late.

Unfortunately, I cannot attend this event due to a prior commitment in Tampa. However, I know one lucky HGG readers will enjoy the fresh air, food and fun on the beach!
