Post-run yoga routine

April showers bring May flowers — and June brings perfect outdoor running conditions here in Boston. Before your run, warm up with some dynamic stretching (e.g. walking lunges, squats, high kicks, butt kicks, knee to chest).

After your run, cool down with this five-pose yoga flow on Boston Magazine. View photos — and video! — below. Photos and video by Ryo.
