So, you've read Born to Run. Or you've heard barefoot/minimalist running is all the rage now. Or...
Well, getting started can be tricky, and a little orientation can go a long way. In this introductory workshop we'll get you headed smoothly in the right direction.
The truth is, most people would prefer not to have to think about it, and running tends to attract a "push through it" mindset. But if you you are the kind of person who is curious, and ready to listen to what your feet and sensations are telling you, then running barefoot is an incredible way to learn how to move gracefully and effortlessly.
Here's what you can expect:
After this introductory workshop you can explore on your own, or join a weekly series of ongoing running form labs.
Participants will be notified of location.

(Wear loose fitting running clothes, and bring whatever shoes you would normally run in, something minimal like flip flops or minimalist shoes if you have them, and a yoga mat or something to lie on.)
We will alternate between discussion, movement lessons, and light running.

Chris is a philosopher of movement, and if you get him started, he'll regale you with tales of space and mythology, and his crackpot theory on sea slugs as role models. He has a tendency to make stuff when he's trying to figure something out. Like giant hyperbolic sculptures, or home made pinhole cameras, or giant puppets. Because it's more fun that way...
And he'll only explain how the catacombs of Paris are related to crochet, well, if you don't distract him first...
