The Balanced Runner Workshop

The Balanced Runner
Saturday, July 12, 1 pm-6:30 pm
Feldenkrais® Institute, New York, NY

Conventional wisdom has it that every person has a distinctive running style that can't be changed without risking injury and that performance depends on strength, endurance, and guts. Runners abandoning such beliefs face conflicting theories on the proper way to run, how to safely change their form, and how to prevent injuries and improve economy.

This comprehensive afternoon workshop will cover how to use the core muscles for maximum economy, how to align the hips, knees and feet to reduce knee and foot strain, and how to coordinate the upper and lower body for power. Competitive runners will reduce imbalances and improve economy, and beginning runners will get a thorough introduction to running mechanics. Runners at every level will learn the main elements of good form and the process that helps each person safely grasp efficient, healthy, and technically masterful running.


P.S. Jae is offering a special TEAM JOE discount of $80, down from $100 at the door! I've taken 2 of them and they are very helpful and definitely given me confidence and new insight into form.
