WORKSHOPS & COURSES
Yoga for Runners and Cyclists
Saturday 23 Sept | 2pm to 4pm | £25
A well-earned post-summer session, led by Lexie Williamson, to rebalance the body after months of hard training and racing. This highly practical two-hour workshop will tease out tension in classic running and riding hotspots: the hamstrings, quads, hips and lower back, through sport-specific dynamic and static stretching.
We will also explore the ways in which becoming more supple can not only release tension and avoid injury but add performance gains in terms of a more fluid stride and improved posture in running, and tighter aero position on the bike. Handouts containing key stretches for both these performance goals will be included. The session will end with deep ‘passive’ stretches and a simple guided relaxation designed to foster deeper sleep.
Pilates Beginners Course
Thursdays 28 Sept to 26 Oct | 7.30pm to 8.45pm | £85
