Is it more important to be strong or flexible?

Is it more important to be strong or flexible?

As someone who is pretty flexible, I see it as almost a bit of a curse. 
can make your joints unstable or “loose” - to the extent that it feels like certain things won’t stay in place (which is where strength comes in).

But then, how strong do we need to be? 

Good posture: Back that thing up

Good posture: Back that thing up

A flatter tummy in one simple step? yep. But notice I said SIMPLE step, not easy. Because changing habits - repatterining your nervous system - takes effort and persistence. Back that thing up, you will get a flatter tum tum AND a happier back. Win.

Free download: Yoga for Runners

This free, downloadable yoga practice for runners is targeted at all those spots that tend to get tight when you run: glutes, hamstrings, quads, and iliotibial band. Regular stretching (preferably post rather than pre-run) can improve your run times and significantly reduce knee pain, shin splints, and the risk of other injury. Click this link or the image to download your copy. Use and enjoy – I’d love to hear your feedback & questions.

This is a snazzy free  yoga resource for runners. April is Freeeester Month, so stay tuned for loads of free downloads, giveaways and community classes.

Speaking of free stuff & community classes, you can find me teaching free classes at the lululemon on Chapel St every Thursday in April from 6.30 – 7.30pm. On the final Thursday of the month, I will be giving everyone in the class two yogAttitude cards to keep. I will also be giving away one full set of cards and one DVD!

Safety note: it’s always best to learn yoga from a qualified teacher before you start practicing at home, and never over-stretch!
