So I recently did an article for Active.com on my favorite yoga poses for runners. I love to run, so these poses are a bit challenging for me but because many were commenting that they wanted to see pictures of the poses (makes total sense), I braved it…out in the cold New England weather with my large high-energy puppy, Willie to bring you some “magazine style” rockin yoga photos.  Featured in this post are the 3 poses I did for my article, 3 Best yoga poses for runners, where you will find all the descriptions, but don’t fret, my trainer, Willie and I will be back out to bring you more so stay tuned!
