Confession: I'm a recovering meat-head; once upon a time my workout program focused on: bench press, biceps curls and lat pulldowns. For years my perception of Yoga was that it was merely stretching in a dark room with funky music. Then I tried my first class and was immediately humbled. As I've gotten older I've completely changed the way I train and now instead of focusing on how much weight I lift, the goal is to improve mobility and maintain a high level of physical function. While I don't practice as much as I would like I now appreciate the role that Yoga plays in a well-rounded fitness program. 

Today in All About Fitness I have a conversation with fitness author, public speaker and Assistant Professor of Exercise Science (Miramar College) Jessica Matthews. Jessica has been teaching yoga for a number of year and has created a Yoga Alliance approved Yoga instructor program at Miramar College in San Diego, CA; we talk about the benefits of Yoga and how you can identify the best form and instructor for your needs.

If you enjoy fitness and exercise at some point you have probably laced up your shoes and gone for a run. Maybe you run just enough to enjoy your desert or an extra glass of wine or maybe you train competitively and try to get faster in every race you enter. Whatever your level of commitment to running you will definitely learn a little something from today's guest.

If you are looking for ways to improve as a runner then you will definitely enjoy this episode.
