Everyone can run because running is about moving.

Learn how to move and you’re running…

Learn how to move better, and you’ll run better!

 

Connect to your running in a fun, positive and impactful way

Accessing Running Magic is a 4-week online course that which takes your running, turns it on its head and puts it back together again.

Comfortably. Easily. Smoothly. Powerfully. And pain-free.

 

Maybe you’ve recently embarked on a new relationship with your trainers? Maybe a whole new world of patterned lycra, sports bras, and the runners high has opened itself up to you?!

Scenario 1

Perhaps you’ve entered a race or two, and maybe the Parkrun is now a staple fixture in your week..? Perhaps you’ve found a super supportive group with whom to go out running…but maybe your running is still a monumental effort. Maybe your running friends seem to be ‘getting away from you’…and yet you’re putting in the same amount of effort.

Scenario 2

Maybe you’ve had your first running injury…(and its accompanying frustrated mood swings!?) Perhaps you’ve spent a bucket load at the sports shoe shop…and walked out with in soles and another new pair of pumps…and are just hoping this is the answer to your running woes!

No doubt you’ve been furiously googling ‘running injuries’, gleaning as much info from everyone you possibly can…so that you can get back out there and don’t lose all of that fitness that you worked so incredibly hard to gain!

Maybe you’re going slightly mad with all the time that you’re spending indoors researching on the computer…when the point was to be outside and getting active!

Scenario 3

Perhaps you just don’t know what you are doing when you run, or what you’re not doing…or indeed what you could be doing better in your running…

If Scenarios 1, 2 or 3 sound like your story, you are certainly not alone, as none of them are uncommon tales…and yet your story is unique to you! As are your motivations for wanting to be out there doing your best…

If you’d like to really empower your running journey (not least to mention power up your running!), then the  Accessing Running Magic Online Course offers you that possibility...

 

How does it do that?!

During each week of the 4 week course, a series of videos are uploaded to your Living Green Health (LGH) account for you to access and to work through.

In addition, there’s a weekly Zoom call with Dawn where she supports you with key elements of the week and offers you the opportunity to raise any questions and gain further insights.

What’s more is that there is a private Facebook group for you to share your successes and to air your challenges, and to connect with others who are progressing along their running journey at the same time.

 

“Makes such a difference to how you feel when you run, with immediate effect”

 

The outcome

  • Throughout the Accessing Running Magic online course you will see an improvement in your running – …whether ‘improvement’ for you means getting stronger and faster, or whether it means knowing how to best help your body to avoid getting injured. Or whether that means having more fun from your running (!) and staying motivated.

 

  • You will also gain a better connection to yourself both during your running and during your day to day, though a series of running activities as well as series of complementary indoor, physiotherapy-based exercises.

 

  • You will gain a deep understanding of how and why our movement patterns are connected with our running and how to release sticking blocks.

 

“I did Dawn’s sessions…and took a minute off my 5k time that week! I know what a difference it can make.

“I now realise how much I shuffled before doing these sessions, with very short strides, and I can’t believe the difference…it has made to my stride length, and I feel like I’m flying! It’s great!” JH, Ipswich

 

The aim of the ARM

To provide a safe, supported space to learn, explore and comfortably practice powerful techniques to make your running light, smooth and easy.

To facilitate that learning within your own environment, but keeping you connected to a brilliant group of like-mindeds all aiming to optimise their own running experience!

 

“Very calm and relaxed environment. Very informative. Enjoyed the whole course.”

 

The course is for you…

…if you’re starting out on your running journey, whether you’re getting to grips with C25K, Parkrun or whether you’re aiming for your first half marathon, or even marathon! Or maybe you’re aiming to improve your time from last time and would like to !

It’s for you if you want to learn how to optimise your running, and how to take care of your body to best complement your running.

If you enjoy receiving new information and like trying it out with an inquisitiveness (and a smile).

And if you’re willing to be compassionate with yourself as you explore some ideas which may or may not come naturally to you…(I guess it’s that old adage that the it’s not about the destination, but it’s about the journey…!?!)

This course is for you if you’re keen to dedicate 4 weeks to progressing through the videos and handouts, trying out the activities, and reflecting on the insights that you discover.

(However, if you miss the start, or fall behind, worry not! You will have access to all of the resources after the course has officially completed.)

 

“As I’m new to running, all aspects…were very enlightening. Loved it – thank you so much. Thank you Dawn it was fab.”

 

What you’ll need for the course

You will need a computer or tablet to be able to download and play the videos as well as to join the Zoom call. (Instructions for joining the Zoom call will arrive once you sign up for the course.)

You will need to be able to play with the outdoor running activities, and you’ll need a little bit of indoor space to (preferably) lay down a yoga mat or towel to have a go at the exercises.

And a sense of play and exploration!

 

“Loved the course – and your style and humour. Very inclusive. Many thanks.”

 

How does the course unfold?

Each week will have a different focus to it. And subsequent weeks will build on the previous ones but we cover 3 main areas:

  • How best to prepare for running :  warming up
  • How to run : optimal movement patterns for running
  • And how best to recover from running : taking care of yourself outside of your running!

 

For the compulsively curious, here’s what the weeks will look like…

 

“Just wanted to say WOW !! I’ve found the magic! I’m just back from a little run… putting into play all of what I learnt and it has made an incredible difference already! My pace was sooo much quicker, quite incredible…

“True testimony of your fantastic workshop and coaching. Thank you so much once again!” LC, Woodbridge

 

Your unconventional but typical week

Each week will start on a Friday (love a little unconventionality! ; )

So, on each Friday in the course you will receive the all of the videos and material for that week. This will give you the entire weekend to make some progress with the material…

There will be a Zoom call on Wednesday evening that you can join in live, or watch again when it’s posted along with your following week’s material.

The Facebook group will be available throughout the course – and afterwards! – for you to connect with and mutually support one another making some new discoveries!

 

“Very inspiring – most of it I never knew about!”

How much does the course cost?

Clearly, investing in ourselves is priceless. However, for ease sake, we have put a price tag on the Accessing Running Magic Online Course, which is £135.

We aim to offer you supreme amounts of fun and value for that – tonnes of learning points for your running (which are guaranteed to spill over into the rest of your life : ) and stacks and stacks to try out and implement in your running. We’ve had so much positive feedback about the in-person course, in the past, that we really don’t think that you’ll be disappointed – it’s like getting to work with your own physio and running-specialist for a month!

Once again, be the first to know when the registration gates open here, and please do stay in touch with us until then!

 

A bit about Dawn

As a physiotherapist who has been running forever, I’ve spent the last 10 years honing my movement analysis skills, my knowledge of the biomechanics of natural running as well as an intuitive understanding of runners’ individual movement patterns, and ways to positively influence them.

I developed the Accessing Running Magic course to combine these skills together with my physiotherapy and yoga experience primarily (although not exclusively) for women, having understood how much scope there is to help women reach their potential in their running.

I’ve also spent a tremendous amount of time successfully trying this out in my own running!

I look forward to seeing you on the course!

FAQs & The Refund Policy

How many places are there on the course?

The places are limited! Each course will have an upper limit, so that we can make sure that everyone has the best experience possible on the course. This includes giving everyone access to the Zoom calls as well as the chance to be a happy contributor in the Facebook group.

What happens if I sign up and then I can’t follow the videos or make the calls?

You will have access to the material for good once the course has started, so you don’t need to worry about falling behind, or missing out!

What if I change my mind about taking part in the course?

We don’t offer a refund on the Accessing Running Magic course, mostly because you are given access to the material for (hopefully happily!)ever after.

Can I bring some friends along?

Yes, please do invite your friends to join you on the course! We only ask that every one of you sign up and pay individually. As you will appreciate, we want to you be empowered along with your friends but it’s also really key to mention that this is Dawn’s work, and if one person pays and several people use the same resources, this really won’t feel very good to anyone. Thanks so much for your courteous consideration with this.

If you don’t have the funds to pay now but are super keen to take part in the course – please please please create a separate savings pot so that you can join us on another occasion; we’d love to have your company! In addition, stay connected for info and offers!

 

We’re super excited to work with you soon : )

 

Best wishes

Dawn
