Video Taping and Gait Analysis
First we will view and study your running form and biomechanics. This indispensable tool affords you a great opportunity to see yourself in action and receive expert feedback that both reinforces the things you are doing right in your form and movement and helps you to correct the habits and inefficiencies that hold you back from feeling and performing your best. It sets the stage for change and future
Proper Body Alignment and Principles of Movement
Next we will present and reinforce, with body-based exercises, “Proper Body Alignment and Principles of Movement.” These concepts will be your guide for how to run efficiently as well as enabling you to contact your source of strength and power. We will help you apply the basic principles of movement that include; the absence of unnecessary effort, circularity, grounding, moving from your center or core, momentum and rhythm. These principles will help you identify and manifest the basic qualities of good running form such as directed arm swing, optimal body lean, integration of upper and lower body and utilization of the powerful core muscles of the hips and pelvis. Skillful use of these principles is central to fluid efficient movement and provides the foundation for continued improvement.
Individualized Critique of Your Running Form
Everyone will receive individual instruction so that you will leave with a basic understanding and the essential tools you need so that you can successfully work with your running form. This will include videotaping again, so that you can see the changes and improvements made during the day. Everyone will have an opportunity to observe improvements others make, giving you a wide range of impressions that facilitate the learning process.
