Yoga gets rid of muscle soreness
Feeling some pain after a tough physical event, like running a 5 or 10K, or even a tough boot-camp workout? You’re likely experiencing delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), and a good yoga session will help. “The gentle and meditative side of yoga is a great counterbalance to strenuous training,” says nutritionist and yoga expert Annie B. Kay MS RDN RYT, also co-author of Yoga and Diabetes.
Yoga Tip: If you are experiencing DOMS and want some relief, try a yoga class that focuses on stretching and meditation such as a hatha or restorative class.
