Examples of coaching modules
One useful option for coaching is to work through our series of carefully formulated and tested modules which can be followed at a pace that best suits your circumstances. Each module looks at different themes supported by mindfulness practices both in stillness and movement, and the modules have been designed to build on each other.
The learning is experiential, so we take what is learnt out on our runs by applying particular focuses and then explore how the experience was together.
All modules are 2.5 hours long, whether delivered in person or online.
MODULE 1 - Foundations of Mindful Running
What does it mean to run with mindfulness?
In this first module we will introduce you to the foundations of mindful running. We will begin to explore the benefits to body and mind of cultivating awareness and attention when we run.
Key learning points:
> Understanding your intention and motivation for running and their importance
> Moving from “Autopilot to Awareness”
> How to adopt an “alert but relaxed” running posture
> Applying a narrow mindful running focus
> Introduce a mindful S.T.O.P. when running
MODULE 2 - Integrating Body and Mind
To what extent are we running only in our heads?
In this second module we will introduce how to open up to a fuller embodied experience in stillness and in movement. This can help us to be more in our runs as opposed to just doing them.
Key learning points:
> Exploring the “Doing vs Being Modes of Mind”
> How to work with expanding the mindful running focus to the whole body
> Listening to the wisdom of the body: the body as an anchor for joyful being and as a radar for injury prevention
MODULE 3 - Opening to Awareness
How much do we really appreciate our sense of the environment in which we run?
As we begin to cultivate a sense that awareness is diffused throughout our body and mind, so too as we open to our environment, we can connect with its spacious quality as we run.
Key learning points:
> Exploring “Negativity bias and the Gratitude Attitude”
> Recognising the mind’s habits
> How to open our awareness inwardly and outwardly
> Understanding how the body reflects the mind
