The practice of running and yoga has been integrated into a new and innovative fitness program, womenRYSE. By integrating the practice of yoga with the physical and mental commitment to running, women have been able to transform focus and ability to realize fitness goals. The two approaches, running and yoga, are complementary. The discipline and mental strength training that is underlying in a yoga practice is critical in unlocking the body’s potential. The repetitive nature of running and balance necessary is meditation in motion as well as an expression of the power of movement as practiced in yoga.
During the weekend, womenRYSE trains active women to offer an 8-week running + yoga program so they can begin to earn extra income as a RYSE coach. womenRYSE coaches are active in their communities while they motivate and inspire other women to become fit. By attending the one-of-a- kind Running + Yoga Coaches Training weekend, women will gain a deeper knowledge of run coaching and yoga practices. They will learn a proven system for success in fitness and business and earn extra income doing what they already love…running and yoga.
“The practice of yoga has been an essential component of my physical training as a runner”, says Tara Comer, Advanced Level Yoga Teacher, USA Triathlon Coach and founder of womenRYSE. “Only through my yoga practice have I been able to understand the power and grace of the mind-body connection. Learning to incorporate intention, breath, and strength into movement has enhanced my running and my life.”

Running builds cardiovascular, respiratory, and muscular fitness. It provides the opportunity to disconnect from inner and outer distractions and reconnect with breath, body and nature. Yoga is a dynamic practice that stretches and strengthens the body and focuses the cluttered mind. The combination of postures, breath-work and meditation can help make a stronger runner.
Studies have shown that yoga squashes stress, aids weight loss, eases pain, helps people stick to an exercise routine, and even improves running times.
“The strength and flexibility you develop on the (yoga) mat—namely in the core, quads, hamstrings, and hip flexors—can help you run more efficiently and stay injury-free”, says Adam St. Pierre, a coach, bio-mechanist, and exercise physiologist for the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine.
The combination of running and yoga into the new and innovative womenRYSE program provides an integrated and complete form of fitness. Inspired by the transformative power of her running and yoga programs over the years, Tara Comer founded womenRYSE and began to offer the womenRYSE 8-week beginner program in 2013. Communities of women gather weekly for 8 weeks to practice yoga, participate in coach-led group runs and support one another in a culture of health and wellness. We have trained womenRYSE coaches, throughout New England and as far as California, to run the program in their communities
