Conference 2008 Workshop
Open To: Public
Conventional wisdom has it that every person has a distinctive running style that can’t be changed without risk of injury and that performance depends on strength, endurance, and guts. Runners abandoning such beliefs face conflicting theories on how to safely make changes, reduce wear and tear, and increase efficiency.
In this workshop, we will use Feldenkrais movement lessons in combination with running to understand the main elements of good form and the learning environment that helps each runner safely grasp efficient, healthy, and technically masterful running. We’ll focus on feeling 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. Participants will receive an audio CD, a list of refresher questions, and a follow-up phone consultation.
Participants should bring a thick bath towel and come dressed to run.
