What: Yoga 101 For Runners & Anue Apparel Trunk Show
Special Guest: Kristen Hannan from South Hills Power Yoga
When: October 30th 7:00pm-8:30pm
Who: Runners and Yogis of all abilities. Gentlemen, don’t be afraid to join us!
Runners are often reluctant to try yoga; their most common fear is that they are not flexible enough. It is not uncommon for those attending their first Yoga for Runners class to ask whether the room will be filled with lithe and flexible bodies, in spite of the class being advertised “For runners; no yoga experience necessary.” This fear may be driven by the many media images showing people in advanced yoga poses, fueling the notion that you have to be able to bend like a pretzel to do yoga. This is the furthest thing from the truth. Yoga is suitable for every body type. It can be started at any age regardless of physical condition, and those who are the stiffest have the most to gain. Runners, specifically, have a tremendous amount to gain from adding yoga to their fitness regimens. Many of the problems runners face, including sore knees, tight hamstrings and lower back pain, can be resolved by practicing yoga asanas.
Join us for Yoga 101 For Runners and learn the benefits of adding it to your routine while enjoying theAnue trunk show and light refreshments after the mini practice. Come in comfortable clothing and bring your mat (if you don't have one that's OK too!) take advantage of the clinic and Kristen's guidance.
The Anue Trunk Show will give you the opportunity to see the collection of this premium yoga-inspired apparel line. These pieces are all designed with the following question in mind: "How will women use this piece of fitness apparel in real life?" Luxe, eco-friendly fabrics are a strong foundation for stylish comfort and performance, so you can keep one foot planted and the rest of you in balance. The Anue collection comes in beautiful prints and rich colors, and offers a buttery soft feel and flattering silhouettes for life on and off the mat. Once you put them on you won't want to take them off!
Another Mother Runner
Wednesday, November 19, 2014 from 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM
Ladies, ditch your sweaty workout wear for some party clothes and kick up your heels with wine, sweets, mingling, amazing giveaways, drool-worthy swag bags, and a little reading by Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea, the authors of Run Like a Mother and Train Like a Mother.
This (free, no-hidden-gimmicks) party is a way to celebrate and connect women runners: Dimity and Sarah are founders of Another Mother Runner, an aid station for active, vibrant women that takes the form of a lively website, highly engaged Facebook page, Twitter feed, and weekly free podcast. Yes, our books and tees will be for sale, but this shindig is about hanging out with and meeting other runners. Bring along some running pals or attend solo: We know you’ll have a great time!
(Please note: Unless you want to see us in chicken-with-head-cut-off mode, it's best to arrive on time, at 7:30, not early.)
Another Mother Runner (AMR) was founded by Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea after the 2010 release of their first book, Run Like a Mother: How to Get Moving and Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity. Written in a witty, conversational tone—like how girlfriends talk to each other on a run—this vivid yellow paperback covers everything from race-day periods to pregnancy, hills to husbands. These mother runners developed Another Mother Runner to be a place where women runners (and walkers-aiming-to-run) can find a (gentle) kick out the door, connect with like-minded women, and get support in spades.
Online, the AMR community includes an engaged Facebook page, an active website with free weekly giveaways, free weekly podcast available on iTunes, and the usual social media outlets. Their second book, Train Like a Mother: How to Cross Any Finish Line and Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity, complete with nine training plans, was published in 2012, while their third book, Tales from Another Mother Runner, will debut in March 2015.
