NYRR Yoga for Runners

In partnership with Pure Yoga, NYRR Yoga for Runners is a five-week program aimed at improving athletic performance and preventing injury. As runners prepare for upcoming races, they’ll learn how to use yoga techniques to strengthen the core, increase range of motion, prevent joint injury, improve breathing, and master mental focus.

Classes are open to all skill levels, allowing runners to learn yoga basics or build upon the skills they already have. During the five-week program, the first four sessions will be dedicated to pre-race techniques, with focus on body preparation and mental clarity before the big day. The fifth class is a post-race celebratory practice with intention to regenerate and restore.


  • Develop a yoga practice that complements running by promoting flexibility
  • Learn exercises to help strengthen the core and prevent injuries
  • Improve breath control and train the body and mind
  • Practice with likeminded practitioners who share your affinity for running
  • Access to spa-like locker rooms with massage showers and steam rooms
