…an owner’s manual for the human body
In this 7 week course, we will focus on the biomechanics/body movement for walking and running. You will learn how your whole body can coordinate together in a new way…accessing the big, powerful muscles of your core and letting the rest stay soft, fluid and relaxed. Your new motto will be, “Move smarter, not harder.”
Lisa understands the details of coordinating a whole-body action for walking and running. In this workshop, all levels can participate together because we will slow WAY down and actually lie down on the floor to re-learn how your body can move to walk (and run) with more ease. Each person learns to feel what is “right” for himself or herself. The class is so relaxing that it feels more like a mindfulness and meditation course, reconnecting you with your natural lightness of being.
Lisa has taught this workshop to 100’s of walking & running enthusiasts over the years – in places as far away as Winnipeg, Canada, Washington, West Virginia, as well as the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.
