PILATES FOR RUNNERS
Can Pilates make you faster?
Can Pilates make you lighter on your feet?
Can Pilates help you run for longer periods?
The answer to all these questions is YES!
As both a Marathoner and Pilates teacher I would like to share with you my teaching and training techniques as well as my knowledge on how to effectively apply the Pilates Method for athletes.
In this course, you will learn specific Pilates based exercises to improve the skill, strength and performance of the running client.
How do feet respond to the ground and how they interact with the rest of the body while running, indicates hugely. Depending on the goal of the runner (from simply enjoying a run out to run a marathon), the way athletes interact with their feet play a decisive role to achieve personal running goals. The lack of efficiency techniques result in early fatigue, injuries, discomfort and ultimately in frustration.
This innovative and highly practical workshop explores the biomechanical and physiological requirements for successful running and suitable Pilates exercises aimed at improving running performance. This workshop will enable you to develop an effective, high-level Pilates running program.
