A two-day Feldenkrais® workshop to help you feel great and run great.
Sat 7/24 11am – 5pm | Sun 7/25 11am – 5pm | $65/day or $110 for both
Go to any local race and watch the runners go by and you will notice that there are as many styles as there are people. The faster runners appear to glide by with little effort while others labor with every step.
Swimmers and cyclists have long used drills to perfect their stroke and become more efficient athletes, but it really hasn’t been until recent years that average runners have paid much attention to their running form.
Improper form makes the body work harder to move across the ground and leads to many injuries.
New York based The Balanced Runner will be presenting two workshops in Boulder over the weekend of July 24 and 25th. The day long workshops promise you will learn how to:
- Prevent/eliminate the causes of typical runners’ injuries, including runners’ knee, shin splints, hip pain, plantar fasciitis, and hamstring problems
- Access the power of your pelvis for running that feels effortless and light from head to toes
- Use your core muscles for more efficient running
- Find better balance between your right and left sides
- Push off and advance your legs more naturally
- Develop sensitivity, awareness and understanding of your body so you can adjust
- your form when running on your own
- Run faster and enjoy it more
Workshop teachers Jae Gruenke and Julia Pak are both Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioners. The lessons are based on the principles of the Feldenkrais Method of Movement Education® and are safe for injured runners but potent enough to impact runners performing at very high levels. The workshop will include a small amount of running, gently guided movement lessons done on the floor, and video analysis of elite runners.
Each participant will leave with a list of reference points to practice on your own and an audio refresher CD.
So if you find that you hurt while running, or are frustrated with your recent performances, your body may be telling you its time to make some changes.
