This is something that I certainly didn’t know a few months ago.
In opposition to the concept that sweat and exhaustion are a sign of a good and successful workout, many of the eastern exercise methods rather focus on a smooth flow of movements while calming the mind with adequate breathing techniques and keeping the body flexible through specific stretches.

- Better posture
- Improved circulation
- Great range of motion
- Injury prevention
So swap your next run for a good yoga session and keep these 5 tips in mind to get as much out of it as possible!
