Description

Most runners understand the concept of ‘core stability’ yet have no idea of how to effectively engage this phenomenal power source as they run. It is absolutely critical in running to know how to use your core muscles to power your legs whilst at the same time eliminating excess movement in your upper body. Harnessing your full core capability on the run requires fine tuned awareness, freedom of movement and a clear connection to your deep lumbo-pelvic stabilizers. In this workshop you will learn exactly this. That is: the most efficient and effective way to use your centre to cover more distance with less effort and significantly less tension. Mastering this skill is so worth it because it truly does open the gateway to effortless flow and smooth sustainable speed.
