Significant alteration to muscle composition, ligamentous laxity, joint stability, blood volume, visceral tone and a host of other important body processes means safe and effective coaching of a post-partum client requires skill and a sound knowledge base.  This course aims to provide a basic understanding of key areas relevant to the general personal trainer/fitness professional .

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.

But how many of us really maximise the potential of our short jog, or our longer runs?

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.

In this morning session, Fix has partnered with mindful running pioneers RUNZEN (www.runzen.co.uk) to host a three-hour foundation workshop. Course leaders 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.

Cesare and Stuart have many years experience between them of mindfulness and meditation practice, developed alongside their own journeys in endurance sports. Through these experiences, they have learnt that the integration of mind-body awareness can improve mental health and running simultaneously for greater all-round wellbeing. These benefits can then be brought back into our everyday life.

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.
