Save Your Running

You’ve tried everything but your problems keep coming back. You’re almost ready to give up on running, or at least on your goals, but you can’t quite bring yourself to let go. You still remember that perfect run you once had, when everything felt smooth and easy and it was a little like flying.

You can feel that way again.

In this workshop you’ll discover how to start turning things around. You’ll learn:

  • Why conventional stretching, strengthening, and technique advice haven’t been working for you
  • How to use core action—not core stability—to take the stress off your back, IT bands, knees, and feet
  • What to do to recover that flowing, flying feeling without overthinking or paying for it later

This workshop uses The Feldenkrais Method of Movement Education, so it’s low-stress and safe for injured runners and beginners but potent enough to impact runners performing at very high levels.

Saturday 10 March 2018, 9am-1pm

Prices: £55 | £45 earlybird by Feb 13 | 20% off for practitioners and trainees (use code FELDY)

Venue: Neal’s Yard Meeting Rooms, 14 Neals Yard, Covent Garden, London WC2H 9DP

Running and the Feldenkrais Method (UK Feldenkrais Guild Day)

Not just a sport, running is actually a fundamental human gait. But how can we reconcile this with the struggle the majority of runners face every time they go out for a run… and the reality that most adults who don’t consider themselves “runners” rarely run or perhaps even can’t?

Through a combination of ATM and FI, this Guild Day will look at the relationship between walking and running, what’s needed to help a non-runner reclaim the ability to run, and how this can also be used to help runners, even those at elite levels, fulfil their potential to run comfortably and enjoyably.

For Feldenkrais Professionals and those in professional Feldenkrais training programmes only.

Sunday 11 March 2018,  10:30 am to 4:30 pm

Venue: Rooftop Studio, Siobhan Davies Dance, 85 St George’s Road, London, SE1 6ER
