Special Weekend Programs for Runners!
THE OTHER GAIT: Running for Everybody*
Advanced Training for Feldenkrais Practitioners with Jae Gruenke
Saturday, March 4, 12:30-6:30pm ~ Not just a sport, running is actually a fundamental human gait. But how can we reconcile this with the struggle the majority of runners face every time they go out for a run… and the reality that most adults who don't consider themselves "runners" rarely run or perhaps even can't? Through a combination of ATM and FI, this advanced training will look at the relationship between walking and running, what's needed to help a nonrunner reclaim the ability to run, and how this can also be used to help runners, even those at elite levels, fulfill their potential to run comfortably and enjoyably. Workshop enrollment includes a followup webinar in late April to discuss your experiences applying what you learned and answer your questions. $80 ($70 earlybird by Feb 13) ~ NE Regional Feldenkrais Guild members take an additional $5 off with discount code NORTHEAST. Attend Save Your Running on Sunday (see below) as well for just $25 (add this when you register) Register here!
