Yoga for Cyclists 6 week course

Yoga+Cyclist.jpg

This course is specifically designed to address the physical tendencies that develop in cyclists. You'll work to correct the imbalance created by repeated overexertion of some muscle groups and underutilisation of others.

Throughout the course you'll learn to how to build postural strength, counterbalance the cycling posture, lengthen commonly overworked muscle groups and increase mobility in the joints that suffer from reduced mobility during cycling

The principal aim is for you to learn how to strengthen and stretch mindfully in class so that you can apply these skills when back on the bike and keep commonly developed cycle related injuries at bay

Led by Rebecca Bogue, this 6 week course starts Monday March 4th for 6 weeks

7-8.30pm

£75


Rebecca is trained in various forms of Dance, Anatomy & Physiology, Yoga Teacher Training (with Tripsichore founder Edward Clark and Elizabeth Connolly) and Yoga for Runners Teacher Training (with Christine Felstead).

Since 2008, she has taught Yoga to various groups of students in London – cyclists, triathletes, actors, dancers, ME sufferers and children. Rebecca believes that yoga has the potential to be transformational to all who are open to embodiment.

Having cycled regularly for 25 years (mostly commuting and various annual long distance rides), practiced yoga for 20 and taught anatomy & physiology for 8, it made sense whilst doing her yoga teacher training to bring all disciplines together. What started off as simply a written assignment, gradually developed into a programme specifically designed to help cyclists.

RUNZEN:  Mindfulness for Runners.  Module 1:  Foundation and Focus

RUNZEN: Mindfulness for Runners. Module 1: Foundation and Focus

todd-diemer-220621-unsplash.jpg

Running is one of the most popular forms of exercise in the UK. Studies suggest a range of benefits for the health of our body and mind when we run. These include helping prevent obesity, heart disease and high blood pressure, and boosting sleep quality and mood.

In recent years, there has also been a growing interest in mindfulness. Research is linking a regular and sustained mindfulness practice with a decrease in the incidence of depression, anxiety and stress. It can also improve the ability to regulate our emotions, and help increase our focus and attention.

Mindfulness for Runners combines the benefits of both running and mindfulness into an integrated whole for more enjoyable runs and greater all round well-being whether on the cushion, on the trail or in everyday life. So, where to begin...

david-marcu-69433-unsplash.jpg

In this morning session, Fix has partnered with mindful running RUNZEN (www.runzen.co.uk) to host a three-hour foundation workshop. RUNZEN instructors Stuart McCleod and Cesare Saguato will introduce participants to the key elements needed to bring a mindful awareness to the experience of the body and mind whilst running.


The module includes mindfulness meditations in stillness, gentle movement and running. RUNZEN will guide you through a range of mindfulness practices before enjoying an easy-paced run around the nearby London Fields.


The mindful running instruction has two components: the foundation and focus. To run with mindfulness requires that we establish and maintain a foundation based on good posture, relaxation and body awareness, which has the added benefit of injury prevention. We will then introduce how to apply a specific focus for mindful running.

MODULE 1 is an introduction to RUNZEN and Mindfulness for Runners and will equip you with the basic tools and practices that you can then explore in running and life. Participants will receive a follow up email with supporting materials and will also then be able to participate in RUNZEN’s FREE COMMUNITY RUNS throughout the year.

Bringing mindful awareness to our experience can help us move beyond engaging with the world on autopilot as we learn to meet the present moment with openness, joy and curiosity. By employing techniques of mindfulness, runnings move beyond the status of a mere physical activity to become a fully integrated body-mind experience.

Stuart and Cesare have many years combined experience in running, mindfulness meditation and professional training in coaching, mindfulness teaching and psychotherapy including with Bangor and Oxford University and Kent and Medway NHS. Through all this, they have learnt that the integration of mind-body awareness can improve mental health and running simultaneously for greater all-round well-being and are passionate about sharing this with you.

PAST PARTICIPANT FEEDBACK

"Great experience and well designed content, delivered in a thoughtful and sensitive way.”

“Restored a sense of joy to my running. Feel now i can just run for the joy of it and not be constantly beating myself up for not performing or doing as well as I think I should be.”

“I am very interested in connecting mind with body and this course provided an ideal opportunity to explore that interest. The experience of running with a different mindset and attitude was revealing.”

“RUNZEN is more than just about running. It guides to experience the joy of movement and stop being judgemental towards yourself. Very liberating sensation. The course is well structured and the instructors clearly are passionate about what they do. I would recommend it to anyone who likes running, irrelevant of the level they are at.”

“I will be reflecting more on my habitual ways of thinking and how this affects my experience. I am going to continue to try to apply the skills we learnt to running and life in general.” 

This course will run on the same morning as Fix Studio hosts its afternoon Yoga for Runners workshop. The RUNZEN mindfulness course is £30 for 3 hours. Or attend the whole day and access both sessions for a reduced rate of £50.
