MEET DEVON 

Devon is an ultra runner living and training in Northern California. Her career has been incredibly decorated, and enormously hard-earned. She's battled injury and adversity — her tattoo of a phoenix on her shoulder is very appropriate. 

She's been an Athlete for Yoga for years, and incorporates the practice of strategic yoga and meditation into her daily training. 


FOLLOW DEVON'S LEAD

"Yoga for me is restorative, aids in recovery, and helps to balance imbalances. It also helps me to slow down and be present in all aspects of my training."

"Yoga is something that has not come naturally to me at all. After a long hard run, my instinct is to melt into my couch, but as I get older and the miles pile up, I have found that that no longer allows my body to recover optimally. Yes, it might feel nice in the moment, but now I am looking at optimization. And that is where yoga has come in. It helps me put myself back together for the next day or see where I need some more work or how my body is really feeling."
