I just wanted to say thank you for a great workshop. Since then, I have been slowly building up my practice (from never having run before) and have even registered for my first 5K run! I’ve found that the breathing and keeping everything centred… has made the world of difference and transformed what I originally perceived as a rather boring, strenuous sport into a moving meditative process.
I took 28 mins off my marathon time… but it’s not just about running… I was surprised how much confidence it gave me.
