|Frontrunners Rhode Island|
Join Frontrunners RI at 6:00pm on Monday 24 August for our regular stretch—run/walk—yoga session with Erik Strzempko in Lippitt Park.
Yoga is a fantastic way to open up the body and improve breathing, especially for many of us who sit for long periods each day, our bodies folded and crumpled, our breathing made shallow.
We hope to see you Monday at 6:00pm at the end of Blackstone Boulevard (see map, below). Bring a mat if you have one, but otherwise, Erik has plenty of mats and blocks to loan out. Afterwards many of us head out for cheap eats at a nearby restaurant and you're welcome to join us.
Drop-in-the-bucket donations of 2-5 bucks to support Frontrunners events and expenses are appreciated but are not expected. Just bring your tired bod and warm spirit and we'll be happy to have you.*
Here's an article from the Human Kinetics website about the benefits of yoga for runners (with a section on how it improves stability and mobility excerpted below):
