Individual Online Programs with Jae Gruenke

Working with Jae and learning the Feldenkrais Method has helped me extend my career as an elite runner. We can all discover new ways of moving that are more efficient and involve less effort. This translates to running faster and staying healthy no matter what your age or ability level!”  —Jen Rhines, three-time Olympian

Do you need something big to change in your running?

Are you tired of trying to figure out what’s wrong with your running form? Tired of going to physical therapy and being given planks and clamshells and not getting better?

Working with Jae is completely different. She’ll look at your running form as a single, whole-body activity and help you shift it so everything works the way nature intended.

You won’t just tweak things, you’ll transform your form, learning to run pain-free, efficiently, and faster.  Jae will help you resolve problems that medical treatment couldn’t correct and break through performance plateaus.

Jae’s individual online programs last three months, starting with your Analysis Call.

The Analysis Call

In advance of the call you’ll send Jae videos of your running, a full history of your running, fitness, and health, any medical reports, other running technique analyses, or additional information that’s relevant, and information on what you’re looking for help with.

Jae will analyze everything you send in ahead of time. During the call Jae will delve deeper into how your running feels and what you’ve been trying to do, connecting the dots between your history and your current challenges. Then she’ll give you her analysis of what’s going on and how she’ll work with you to change it.

This is the initial phase of your work with Jae. If everything is a fit in the call—if your problem is one Jae is confident she can help you with, and you’re confident Jae is the type of person you want to work with—then you’ll go on to work together online for 3 months. Your payment for the Analysis Call will be applied to the cost of the full 3-month program. Book your Analysis Call and get started now.

Jae is very thoughtful and with a great knowledge and mastery of her work. She’s very good at deciphering problems and explaining questions in detail. The lessons are very well organized and easy to follow. If you’re new to Feldenkrais I’d say that it’s unconventional and may seem different than anything you’ve done at first but just see it as a new challenge and way of mind and go into it open minded. The changes that result can be incredibly evident and exciting!  —Jordan Hasay, elite marathoner

The Program

The 3-month program is entirely online, so it doesn’t matter where in the world you are. Jae will create custom learning programs for you from her proprietary materials, stay in close touch by email, and do regular video analysis and Zoom calls so she can adjust the program to meet your needs perfectly.

Rather than data overload, paralysis by analysis, and a time-consuming, ineffective exercise program, you’ll get information you can actually use and the exact lessons and techniques you–personally–need to run better and feel great.

You’ll get:

  • a monthly video analysis and Zoom consultation
  • an new understanding of how your current running style relates to your athletic and physical history and the problems you’re currently dealing with
  • clarity on what you need to change and how to go about it
  • a customized program of Feldenkrais lessons and supporting material, updated monthly based on your videos and consultations
  • unlimited email support including assessment of additional video as needed

It takes deep work to get deep results. This program is not for you if:

  • you’re looking for quick fixes
  • you aren’t able to invest in a premium program
  • you don’t want to do anything new or unconventional

I had the good fortune of meeting Jae while I was giving a lecture at a race in NYC. She impressed me with her incredible knowledge of how people run and the ease with which she could determine a fault in someone’s running form.

 

I had her work with my wife, 3x Olympian Jen Rhines, and it was incredible to see how much more efficient Jae could make Jen’s stride with just a few sessions.

 

Jen worked with Jae consistently over the next two months and went on to win 2 national championships.

In-Person One-to-One Lessons

Mill Valley, California

Finally solve your problems, run smoothly and easily, and have your running feel natural again.

During your lesson Jae will study the way you run, delve with you into your running background to connect the dots your doctor or physical therapist may have missed, then give you a hands-on Feldenkrais lesson so you can feel how to improve your running.

In the Feldenkrais lesson Jae will gently move you and verbally guide you through the movements you most need to learn. This process allows you to do three crucial things:

  • feel key subtleties in your movement that are difficult to discover while you’re actually running
  • experiment with new movements safely, without risking injury
  • actually feel better coordination so you can apply it

You’ll avoid the catch-22 of someone telling you to run differently and you having no idea how to make it happen…because if you did, you’ve have been running that way to begin with!

It’s also completely safe, even if you’re currently injured, and even if you can’t currently run.

If you’ve been frustrated with your results from coaching, movement/core training, or physical therapy, that’s because they didn’t allow you to go through this essential process for learning movement.

Despite what you might have been told elsewhere about improving your form taking a long time to show results, you’ll see the benefits of each lesson with Jae right away. You’ll run more comfortably, easier, and faster the very next day.

The effect of the lessons is cumulative. Occasionally a single lesson can spark the critical shift needed to transform your running, but most of the time a sequence of lessons is necessary for you to reach your goals.
