the benefits of puppy yoga

Puppy yoga classes are not basic yoga classes but you will experience all of the benefits of puppy yoga as well as all the benefits of regular yoga. In these classes, the puppies will go from one mat to another, fight with each other and jump on you. If they are not involved in performing yoga poses, the puppies will run around the room and create a fun atmosphere.

In this way, puppies get the opportunity to socialize with other puppies. Usually, puppies are borrowed from kennels or animal shelters. Also, they often find their home no matter where they are from the kennel or shelter.

People who attend classes often get close to puppies, and therefore want to adopt or buy them. Yoga classes usually have about 20 puppies, although that number can often vary, and their onset is usually 12 to 15 months.

The Important of Active Recovery for Runners

Saturday, November 24th, 2018
  • Stretching your hamstrings and quads.
  • Maintaining proper posture.
  • Hydrating.
  • Being aware of your surroundings.

All of these things are important elements and rituals for runners to perform. They all support a healthy, safe, and productive workout where you can push your pace and strengthen your craft. But the rituals you perform after your runs and on your rest days are equally as important as what you do on the road. Active recovery is an essential part of any runners training program. Not only does active recovery give your body and muscles the time it needs to heal and strengthen, but it helps prevent injury.

Depending on your pace, distance, and terrain, running is considered a moderate to high-impact exercise. That’s because running places strain on your feet, ankles, knees, hips, and back. When done correctly, running is a full-body workout that incorporates core strength and upper body stability. Working your body and all its muscles at the same intensity every day isn’t always best. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t exercise at all on your “rest” days”. In fact, you should perform some type of active movement 7 days a week. But knowing which type of exercise to do on your day “off” will help improve your performance the next time you lace up your running shoes.
