February 2017 – Running: make gravity your friend with Alexander Technique

Here on the west coast, February is almost the start of spring!  It certainly is a good time to get more active after the dark winter days, and one of the most popular activities is running.  In Vancouver and surrounding areas (including Vancouver Island), there are over 50 thousand people who train throughout January, February and March to be able to run the famous 10k Sun Run in April. However, many of these people face injury or lack of good technique while running, which hampers their fun, ease, and joy in the activity.  Here is a great online article talking about how the Alexander Technique can help runners.

Heather Walker is a certified teacher of the Alexander Technique, based in Nanaimo, B.C.  For more information about lessons and workshops, please phone 250-716-3464 or email info@soundbeingstudio.com.
