Yoga and running aren't as distant exercise cousins as commonly considered. When it comes to running, the connection between the body, breath and mind are more present than your average pavement pounder might think. After all, the mind/body is the whole concept behind the "runner's high." Fact is, outdoor athletes naturally incorporate many of the elements of yoga into their chosen sport—whether they realize it or not. Yoga can even help to enhance a runner's gate while minimizing the chance of injury.
