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 turn things around.
• 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.
(Note: healthy runners who want to improve their technique and injury resistance are also welcome!)
The workshop will be preceded by an optional run from 8:45-9:30 am led by coach Art Ives. There will be a second optional run the following day, Sunday 6/23, at 8:30.
