Start thinking of yourself as an athlete, not just a runner!

 The Body Learning Running Camps are monthly special topic workshops that build on what you already do well and challenge you to learn more!

Too much running, as an isolated activity, without working equally as much on your muscle balance and core activation, can make you weak and uncoordinated, leave you vulnerable to overuse injuries and hamper your development of good running form too. Many forms of core strength training can help your body adapt effectively to create running efficiency and injury resistance.


Body Learning 200 –  Alexander Technique 

Special guest instructor James Brody works with BPM’s Eric Blood

Learn New Postural Keys that yield more natural ease, cause fewer injuries, and create the ability to breathe more effectively. As we learned in the Summer Running Camp, this remarkable work has exciting implications for runners, helping us identify habits of thought and movement and preventing us from interfering with our natural and efficient coordination. 

“Where the head leads, the body follows. Therefore, the relationship of the head to the torso is of vital importance. The perfect running posture is tall. Imagine a pulley attached to your breastbone lifting your chest gently upward. The back is lengthened with the head and neck naturally balanced at the top. This alignment pattern is both challenged and strengthened by leaning slightly forward to gain momentum. Disturbing the natural balance of the head by thrusting it forward brings a downward pressure that creates shortening along the front of the torso, restricts breathing, and puts strain on the lower back.” (M. Balk)
