With Maggie Macgill

Running is an innate and natural movement pattern that can be as freeing to the body as Pilates is. In this studio series, we use the Pilates Method to teach us how to run in a way that develops inner power, optimum alignment and refined body awareness.

This series will provide you with the opportunity to:

  • Become familiar with ways of doing and teaching movement that engage with the intelligence of your organ, fluid, sensory, vestibular and nervous systems; first in Pilates and then through walking and into running
  • Use the Pilates Method to become familiar with skills and movement qualities that are key to supported and integrated walking, running and sprinting form
  • Develop cues, imagery and teaching skills to seamlessly transfer these movement qualities into running.
  • Embody the key elements of biointelligent running.

The series is designed to be experienced in sequential order; however each workshop is complete in its own right.
