Barefoot running clinic
Back for a second year, the Barefoot Running Clinic is renowned for its transformational techniques over a weekend which will enable you to move better, recover quicker, re-ignite your energy and most importantly enjoy the outdoors.
Hosted by Rollo Mahon, an injury and athletic performance specialist from Barefoot Performance Academy, the specialised techniques are based around developing a more effective ‘running gait’, allowing running to become light and natural. The weekend’s journey takes you from rehabilitation management that saves time and prepares a platform to spring from, and allows you to heal common movement injuries, understand how to stay healthy, fit and full of energy whilst developing the principles of movement. The weekend will incorporate elements of Pilates, physiotherapy, Thai Chi, Yoga, performance training and the BFPA’a Play Fit concept.
The principle of barefoot running is to quickly reconnect you to be able to run properly, this will have an immediate effect on posture and the nervous system, allowing you to run better whatever your footwear.
The nutritional support workshop will identify your metabolic type and will educate you to re-fire your metabolic furnace.
The clinic is suitable for experienced runners as well as non-runners.
