Ep 71: Sage Rountree, Ph.D. Talks About Breathing Techniques and Yoga for Runners
In this episode of Run with FItpage we were joined by Yogi Sage Rountree. Sage Rountree, Ph.D., is a pioneer in yoga for athletes and an endurance sports coach. Her goal is to help people find the right balance between work and rest for peak performance in sports and in life.
As co-owner of the Carolina Yoga Company and director of its yoga teacher training, she’s especially interested in sequencing and clear languaging. She’s a contributor to Runner’s World and Yoga Journal online. Sage is also a competitive age-group runner and triathlete. After the birth of her second daughter, Sage began training to teach yoga. Around the same time, she turned to triathlon and instantly loved the sport. She is now a USA Triathlon certified expert coach, working with athletes who compete at all levels in triathlon, duathlon, running, and ultrarunning.

When he is not working, he is found running, almost always. He can be found on nearly all social media channels but Instagram is preferred @vikas_singhh.
