Last night, there was a Yoga for Runners clinic at the Maine Running Company presented by Michael Gaige. He shared a lot of tips on how to effectively implement yoga into your regular routine and pointed out the benefits and dangers. Runners have some special concerns that they need to be aware of.

Afterwards, he was available for questions and answers, and my wife managed to get this great tip out of him. The question she is asking was about the proper way to breath during the yoga, but Michael went on to explain how that can affect your breathing during a race and how to prevent yourself from gasping for air without having to slow down.
