What is a yoga and movement practice for runners?

 

 

"Nick is an outstanding teacher/coach......  very patient and very supportive. I honestly can't rate Nick highly enough. Genuinely the best coaching I've had. I have done the full day one to one and a further tune up. Well worth the money. Thank you Nick."

SoulinMotion Running retreats SLOVENIA and LENDRICK LODGE 2018

 Slovenia  2018.  IS NOW OVER

'“Meeting Nick in October 2017 has transformed my running....... I ran my second half marathon in March, injury free, without a knee brace and 12 minutes faster. I loved it. Words cannot describe the Slovenian retreat. Truly life changing. Running at your own pace in a beautiful country surrounded by wonderful, like minded people. Yoga, meditation and amazing food cooked by our own Slovenian chef. Running light and long. My son asked me when I arrived home if I had grown taller. Of course I hadn’t but it feels like I have. I hope I can return next year and make it an annual event just for me. Thank you Nick and Mark for allowing me to be part of this amazing experience.”

'‘the advantage of a 7 day retreat over shorter workshops was obvious. The loop of learn/drill/practise/get feedback/adjust can be repeated as often as you are willing to do in the time - with the invaluable presence and scrutiny of ‘coach’ Nick. I think i learned a huge amount in this short time, not always quantifiable, but i felt real progress was made and there is much material for long term training. Two tangible examples: my VO2max went up a few notches within days. And the time for my daily 11k route decreased by a full 8 minutes (!) over the week, simply due to learning about gears and practising. The beautiful environment is of course a huge motivator - running in stunning scenery is the best!’

What a great weekend, it was lovely to be surrounded by like minded folk. Nick Constantine and Mark Russell's organisation of the weekend was superb. They were both well aware of the individual needs and were able to offer their expert advice to help people on their chi running journey

Soulinmotion Yoga and Movement workshops for runners

Situated at the Yoga Station  Whitley Bay and coming for 2019 Edinburgh, Inverness and Glasgow,

'A work in not a work out'

 Having worked with runners at all levels(2000+ at last count) from Olympic qualification to broken and distraught for 12 years , designed and supported the development of  yoga and running retreats for 7 years, I feel I am now able to offer the level of workshop for runners in the North East and Scotland  that I feel runners need. As one runner said 'you are helping us bulletproof our body against injury'

I have  additionally spent 10 years working with Kridaka Yoga in Scotland (Mark Russell) who has worked with the very best yoga teachers (Gary Carter, A G Mohan, Pete Blackenby, Leslie Kaminoff to name but a few) blending and integrating the different types of yoga styles such as Ashtanga, Iyengar, Scaravelli etc to form a practice around the individual not the asana. 

 The running element of my teaching practice combines aspects of Chi Running but includes additional specific drills that focus on balance, agility and mobility to help the runner move better. All workshops are supported with video feedback and further notes/video support.

If you are interested in signing up to the workshops/classes please sign up to the newsletter below, you can also join the private FB group for clients, link is https://www.facebook.com/groups/227661094683788/

  "Nick is an outstanding teacher, very supportive and incredibly knowledgeable"

 "Hi I just wanted to say a massive thank you . Using the techniques has made a massive difference to my running, not just reduced pain levels but has renewed my enthusiasm............. I will be looking out for further courses and I'm spreading the word. Perhaps all hope of racing again is not lost....."

"I feel I have come such a long way since my first session with  you early last year. I was trying out new things to give meaning to my life as my work was reducing. I had joined the running club and was starting to make friends, but without the good teaching I've had I've no doubt that running would be one of those things that I beat myself up on over not getting out there. I know from last experience it's so easy to let it all slide."

"Thanks to you  for a fantastic day. A real step forwards. It may only have been a few steps but it was definitely running. And NO PAIN. Amazing what you chaps achieve in instilling confidence. Surpassed my wildest expectations."
