Yoga for Runners

Yoga is a great way to reduce injury risk as a runner, loosen up and strengthen key muscle groups. 

Join ex-Australian representative runner and experienced and devoted yoga teacher Ryan Mannix as he teaches you how to use yoga to run more efficiently and speed up recovery. 

Meet Ryan Mannix

Ryan will be heading up the Yoga for Runners sessions.

Ryan has always had a keen interest in movement. Ryan was a professional runner and duathlete for over 10 years, representing Australia on a number of occasions. When he became sidelined with a serious injury after a cycling crash, Ryan began yoga as a means for rehabilitation. What was meant to only be short term became a new found love of movement. After practicing for two years, Ryan did his first 200hour teacher training in Bali. He then went on to continue to train and learn, training with Laughing Lotus, Yoke yoga, yin yoga training with Jen Crescenzo and Hugh Lee, along with countless workshops and short intensive courses in Melbourne and abroad.
