Anyone who knows me understands that I personally only run when chased. Or, perhaps, if there is a shout-out for free beer and pizza. Even then, it would have to be really good beer. But, I support all of my yoga students and the yogis “out there” who do run joyfully just for the sake of running and wanted to share information about this fabulous workshop for runners being offered in Pittsburgh on the first day of spring! One of the facilitators, Linda Meacci, is both a fabulous yogini and instructor and has always been supportive of Yoga Matrika. It is my delight to promote her work to share this essential practice and tools for running as safely as possible.
