Yoga Journal asked for my recipe, which appeared in their September issue. It’s online now—check it out. My love of granola started nine years… Read more »

Read: 4 Yoga Tricks to Steal for Running

You’ll find another excerpt from The Runner’s Guide to Yoga at Yoga Journal. This one is about yoga to do during your run.
