Yoga for Runners w/ Jessica Ernst

  • The Yoga Ground 96 Washington Street West Orange, NJ 07052 USA (map)

The arrival of spring means warmer weather, and it also means that more of us will be heading outside to exercise! As a runner, Jessica looks forward to spring because it means more outdoor miles, but she also understands the need to balance out her body with yoga.

For runners, yoga can be a beneficial training tool to help both the mind and body, whether you’re training for a goal race or running to stay in shape. Yoga builds a stronger core, increases flexibility, helps you gain a strong command of your breath, facilitates better balance, and aids in recovery.

In this 90 minute workshop, Jessica will lead you through a flow designed specifically with runners (and cyclers) in mind, with plenty of time for questions, explanations, and adaptations for each body in the room. You’ll move through poses that help build strength and length in areas of your body important to running, and you’ll finish with a deeply nourishing rest, which helps assimilate all of your hard work and effort.

Cost: $24 before May, $32 May 1 or later, or 2 Classes from the Yoga Bank


Jessica was initially drawn to yoga as a way to complement her distance running after a series of injuries left her feeling frustrated. Once she realized that yoga offered more than just physical benefits, she embarked on a teacher training program under Kim Shand. Jessica has been teaching since 2013, and believes in fostering the kind of environment that is both challenging and informative. She teaches an alignment-focused vinyasa class that weaves philosophy and myth throughout, and she believes in helping her students understand the WHY behind it all.
