What is the one thing that all runners should do but never seem to do enough? No, not that. Yes, stretching!
I am that person. I NEVER stretch. As soon as a run is done, I am rushing off to the next stop. So, when I was offered a 6 visit pass to Yoga Six, I jumped at the chance to indulge in their deep stretch classes.
I invited my friend Beth to go with me. She is super good at yoga and is so consistent that I knew she would show up every time for me!
They sell super cute gear.
And have a whole cooler full of Kombucha and similar beverages.
Fancy restrooms / locker rooms. I can't show you pictures but suffice it to say, this isn't your typical gym locker room. They have nice showers, towels and toiletries.
They offer a variety of classes including my beloved Deep Stretch, Flow, Power Yoga, Hot Yoga and Boot Camp.
My favorite teacher so far is Nate. He teaches Deep Stretch as well as Hot Yoga. Yes, his beard is ON POINT!
But my favorite thing about Yoga at Yoga Six has been how incredible I feel after. It is like an active massage if that makes sense. Deep Stretch is just what the (running) doctor ordered! And I am loving all the time I am spending with my friend Beth!
She wears super cute outfits too! Speaking of outfits, let's talk yoga bras. Yoga bras are different than sports bras you wear for running.
Yoga bras need to be soft, non-irritant and bendy. But still hold you in place for those inverted downward dogs and such. I LOVE the Swoob bra. It maintains a nice shape yet gives you the support you need for yoga. I probably wouldn't wear it for running. But for yoga? Perfect!
Sorry for the several pictures of me in my bra. But hey, inquiring minds want to know! Now I just need these bras in colors. You know I love me some colors! I think this one may be next or this one! Did I mention that all Swoob bras have hidden pockets to stash your car key, gels or money or whatever else? Brilliant right! Hands free!
I am linking up with Jill for Fitness Friday!
And also with Nicole for the Fit & Fashionable Friday.
So tell me, do you properly stretch like a good runner? Do you switch out your sports bra between running and non running activities?
As always, I wish you Happy Feet,
