Mindfulness for Runners events

Mindfulness for Runners: introductory course
Saturday 20th October, 9.30am to 4.15pm
V&A Building, Victoria Park, London E9
Course Leaders: Stuart McLeod and Cesare Saguato

Whether you are still fairly new to running or a more experienced athlete, our one-day workshops are designed to cater for all running abilities. No prior experience of mindfulness practice or meditation is necessary either, just a willingness to give it a go.

The day is structured around three short, easy-paced runs*, and in between these we give instruction in a range of mindfulness techniques. The invitation for the whole day is simply to be curious about our experience. Each practice is followed by an opportunity to share as a group what we may have discovered.

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. As the day progresses we introduce different aspects to the focus of mindful running and consider when these should be applied.
