Post-run neck and shoulder stiffness… sound familiar? It’s not surprising if these areas are angry because running demands more from them than you realize, which amplifies the daily demands of sitting in front of computers. For many of us, both life and training stress accumulates around the neck and shoulders in the form of tension, which steals energy and decreases endurance. Plus, be honest: your head is heavy.
Athletes are my muse—you’re why Jasyoga exists. Nothing makes my heart sing more than seeing you pay attention to what your body needs and respond accordingly—seeing you balance strength and flexibility, effort and ease. When you’re intentional about what you do on the mat, yoga eases imbalance before post-run tweaks and strains become full blown injuries. Oiselle’s pro squad in Bend embodies a balanced approach and it’s an honor and privilege to help them Hit Reset.
