Improve your form at this Chi Running taster session
An evening workshop with some good chat and some simple exercises.
Nick is returning for his 11th appearance at the store. Never dogmatic, Nick will share some great video footage of runners and also his basic principles of coaching and teaching as well as the simple, but effective, principles of chi running. Nick has been coaching chi running for over 10 years and now holds workshops, yoga and running days plus Scottish and European retreats throughout the year.
After 20 years of yoga practice, Nick finally decided to take the plunge and become a yoga teacher, qualifying in 2018. He also runs yoga for runners workshops in the North East on a monthly basis.
Nick is a Senior Chi Running Instructor for the UK. Nick has worked with many runners (over 2000 at last count) as a longtime coach (PGCE in Sport) and chi instructor to help them develop more awareness to their overall form and thus improve their enjoyment of running by reducing injury and, quite often, increasing their speed. He communicates simply and clearly. He has coached clubs, tri clubs, ultra runners, new runners, injured runners, national runners, cross fit with an age range between 11-80. There is sure to be some little nugget of information you can take away with you.
Nick will share striking video examples of before and after footage of runners, and discuss client case studies he has worked with from elite to recreational runners.
Nick will also show and share some nice simple posture exercises we should all be doing, some derived from his yoga practice as well as other areas – not only to enjoy our running but also to improve our internal and external alignment. For those who are suitably attired, the second half of the session will involve some light running and walking but nothing too strenuous.
People who have attended these sessions have really enjoyed them. They always get fully booked so please reserve your place early.
You can find out about Nick's workshops via Entry Central. His next full day workshop in Edinburgh is on the Saturday 15th June. These always fill so if you are keen please book your spot.
“I felt I could run forever during this session. This was massive as I could hardly run at all with my back pain. Run happy. The post analysis videos that he sends you are such a massive bonus. I can't recommend him highly enough. The gift of knowledge is the best gift anyone can give you and I feel I now what how to self-assess my running so I continue to improve. Thanks Nick!”
