Run for your life workshop

Run for your Life

Next workshop coming up – Sunday, 9 June, Newtown Park, 10am-2.30pm

Newtown Park is available again, with the fresh new running track and well-appointed function rooms, so Fem and I thought it was the right time to set up the next workshop for people searching for the secret of sustainable running.

Also, since the last workshop I’ve been in New York and met up and worked with Feldenkrais colleagues at The Balanced Runner, so am eager to pass on what I’ve learned.

Power of the Butt
This time we include a focus on Butt Power – the elementary role of our glutes in providing power for running and protection for joints.

There’ll also be good work on dynamic running style and form – “posture” is too passive a word. And much more. Full details available soon.

The timing is good – you can recover from the Dorne Cup the previous day, or take a timely break in your build-up/tapering for the Wellington Half and Full Marathon just 2 weeks later.

We’ll start mid-morning to finish mid-afternoon, so you still have time for “Sunday” stuff, and we’ll provide a light soup n bread lunch.

Cost: $60 (waged)

Trainers: Femke Koene, movement specialist; Rupert Watson, Feldenkrais practitioner and evergreen runner.
