Slowly getting back in to marathon training (got lots of time, it's not till October, but running is fun so why not start early) this pic is from the yorkshire marathon in 2018. If anyone else did it or was there watching, you will know that it rained the WHOLE time 🤦♀️ as if running that distance wasn't already hard enough, running it while soaked to the bone really added to the experience. This year the plan is to run kielder marathon. Exchanging road for trail.
The thing that helped me through marathon training, and with my running in general was my yoga practice. Helped me to not get injured, helped me create strength in the muscles I needed to run well and helped me be level headed about the reality of running such a long distance. .
So if you are running a 5k park run on a saturday morning or training for a marathon I recommend giving yoga a go. I promise it will improve your running and your recovery no end. .

Yin Yoga 5 week block
Weds - Apr 22nd/29th May 6th/13th/20/th
Yin Yoga is a slower paced, deeper style of yoga where postures are held for an extended period (3-6 mins), it incorporates the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine to facilitate and encourage the flow of Qi/prana/energy through the body. Through holding the asana for an extended period with very little muscle engagement we target stretching connective tissue. As we find stillness within our body physically we find ourselves in an introspective almost meditative state giving us space to connect deeper and get to know ourselves as we notice every feeling, sensation and emotion.
This yoga is the perfect partner to balance the more yang/dynamic forms of yoga practice (vinyasa, ashtanga...) & forms of exercise and the benefits are many, here are just some of the main benefits I have personally felt
-A balance of energy throughout the body, feeling of lightness.
-Increased flexibility, will ultimately help improve your more yang style of yoga practice & exercise.
-All the benefits that come with meditation as this is a meditative practice, the ability to still the mind and notice what comes up, renewed perspective.
-Relieves stiffness and increases mobility in the joints.
-The intention is to spend the class in predominately in the parasympathetic area of our nervous system to lower stress levels and facilitate healing within the body...……...
I could continue but I urge you to come to class and experience Yin for yourself giving it at least 4 classes to allow the body and mind to adjust to this style of yoga.
Single drop in class £7
5 wk block £30, non changeable/transferrable.
Jaxxyoga passes are usable to book this class also.

I am super excited 🤩 and feeling very grateful and privileged to be going on my full time Yoga Instructors course in April for a month here in Brunei 🇧🇳 I absolutely love Yoga and the benefits I have gained physically and mentally have aided my running, cycling, swimming, strength training and overall well-being and mental health.
I’m still learning and growing each time and aspire to be as good instructor as two of my teachers out here one day 💗 🧘♀️ #yogainspiration#yoga#fitness#runnersyoga#ironmantraining
T IS FOR TRAINING
Effective training needs several components. Variety, motivation, consistency, balance, fuel to name a few.
Why are you training?
This is important to know...otherwise you’ll stab in the dark, do a bit of this and a bit of that. It’s one of the first questions I’ll ask you in your consultation. What is your why?
What is your plan?
Having a plan which matches your why is also essential. This could include daily activity such as your 10,000 steps, a balanced plan to follow in the gym, or a shopping list to cover your weekly food plan.
How are you training?
Remember runners need to do more than just run. Weight watchers need to do more than a cross trainer. Are you lifting weights, working on a balanced routine? Cardio? HIIT? Yoga? Core?
At Not Another Gym, your training is planned out for you. All you need to do is turn up. A typical 30min NAG session will cover HIIT, cardio, strength and core. Our range of Yoga classes will sort your flexibility and mobility.
If you need help with making a food plan, your personal trainer is always on hand to push you in the right direction.
#NAGChertsey is Personal Training. Personal to you, which is why your consultation is important, as is the constant contact you’ll get with your coach.
We are currently offering one and two week trials. Get in touch now for your FREE, no obligation consultation and to discuss a discounted trial period.
Today, I choose gratitude.
🙏Gratitude that I have witnessed my immediate community and those on this online platform reaching out to those in need.
🙏Gratitude that in the midst of this pandemic we are still connected.
Reaching out to others on @instagram has been life changing. I have made friendships, business connections and discovered supportive, loving people literally across the globe ❤️
The other day I read an article on @huffpost by an author who I then messaged on @instagram, and within an hour the author responded back. We shared a similar struggle. I reflected how amazing it is that such connections are possible today.
When we reach out to each other, especially on @instagram, we are establishing a powerful connection. These connections are even more powerful now that we are limited in our social interactions.
These are unsettling times, but today I choose gratitude that we are together. If you are struggling please know that my inbox is open and you are not alone.
Tag a friend below who you have met through @instagram 👇

Stretching? What’s that?
I will admit, I did NOT stretch after a run for a long time. I’d just jump back in my car and drive home from the park or trail and forget by the time I got home. But now that I’m running directly out my front door and have nowhere to rush back to after, I have no excuse. .
This break in the routine has been so nice for putting into perspective how I spend my time. After this quarantine is the over, some major things are going to have to change in my life. .
My favorite yoga pose/stretches . 🔹 Standing quad stretch (shown in pic)
🔹 Double Pigeon (I’ll post one of this later! It’s my favorite) 🔹 Downward Facing Dog
🔹 Cobbler Pose
Hey, guess what!!??!?! I just posted a new yoga for normal people video up on my YouTube Channel--Yoga for People with Tight Legs (aka Yoga for Runners) .
This one's extra special since we're all trying to walk and run more to stay in shape while we shelter at home. I built a short 20 minute sequence to help improve your flexibility and stretch out those tight hamstrings, hips, and backs!
Be sure to subscribe and sound off in the comments about what you want to see more of!
Hips and toes! Here’s a little video demonstrating a few specific yet simple stretches for feet and hips - perfect for all those keen runners, walkers, joggers and cyclists out there! .
Aim to do 1-2 mins per stretch, per side after each run/walk/jog/cycle to get the most out of these stretches. .
I will post another mini video later this week, demonstrating stretches for hamstrings and calf muscles. So make sure to follow us to stay tuned! .
I’m absolutely loving @alicerickardpt latest #wewillrunasone campaign to help get everyone motivated to run for physical and mental health during these challenging times. Check out her page and be sure to hashtag #wewillrunasone in your running stories! .
Reflexiones después de 3 semanas haciendo yoga 🧘♀️ ↪Mi momento preferido para hacer yoga es por las noches después de llevar a mis hijitos a la cama.
Su hora de dormir es a las 8 p.m. , así que después tengo tiempo para relajarme un poco, tomar café y prepararme para comenzar.
🔸️Durante el día me resulta muy complicado porque ellos despiertan muy temprano y no paran. ↪He realizado 4 o 5 sesiones por semana.
↪Dedico entre 1 hora u 1 1/2 para hacer la sesión. ↪En la respiración está la clave para que los movimientos sean fluidos y sin dolor. ↪Por mi mente pasan mil pensamientos de todo tipo, y el reto es no engancharme, dejar que fluya. 🔸️Es increíble como la voz interna no deja de hablar, habla habla habla, y no se trata de callarla ni de hacerle preguntas, solo dejar que pase y concentrarse en la respiración. ↪Me gusta escuchar música de 432 Hz porque me da una sensación de relajación intensa y me ayuda a estar más concentrada. ↪Mi flexibilidad va mejorando
↪Me siento más fuerte ↪En especial, ahora que salir a correr es imposible, hacer yoga ha sido una alternativa para seguir ejercitándome y no sentir ansiedad.

How are you getting your workout in with the gyms closed? I’ve been getting out for more runs than ever! 🏃♀️ Whether you’ve been a runner for a while or your just picking it up now, I’ve got a great lower body stretch yoga video up on YouTube for you! I designed this sequence specifically for runners but of course it’s appropriate for anyone who needs a lower body release. Link in bio! I’d love to have you subscribe and follow along!
Yesterday, I celebrated my Birthday with @StepXStepRun & @Lululemon Fashion Valley at our weekly Thursday Night Waterfront Social Run in San Diego.
Before the run, I had the opportunity to practice teaching what I've been learning in Yoga Teacher Training, by leading about 35 runners through a Yoga Mobility Pre-Run Flow.
We followed it up with a beautiful waterfront run along Shelter Island in San Diego & a post run social hour at Eppig Brewing.
By stretching & incorporating a flow before a run, we loosen up tight muscles and work on other muscles to build strength in our balance, helping us avoid injury on our run.
Waterfront Social Run meets every Thursday at Eppig Waterfront Biergarten at 6:30pm and next Thursday with Daylight Savings Time, we're gonna be switching up routes now that we'll have a little more sunlight. Come join us
