Karli Taylor has written the Yoga For Runners column for The Pace Setter for the past two years and has done a tremendous job. Fortunately for her and unfortunately for us her business has become so popular that she will no longer be able to contribute regularly to our journal.
Presently she is partnering with Mat Nark the founder of Nark Running and Strength to present Forever Run Yoga. It is a complimentary yoga program designed for athletes to strive for freedom from injury and consistency in training. The next class with be on Tuesday, September 17, 2019 at 6:30 PM and after that it will be every alternating week on Tuesday as long as there is interest. I attended the first class a week ago and it was packed. Below are pictures from that session followed by an archive of the outstanding articles she has written for The Pace Setter.
