Our body is the most sophisticated and valuable piece of equipment we own. It seems happiest when engaging life on every level, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. Our quality of life and experience of well-being is dependent on the condition of our body, the way we use it, our posture, and the degree of freedom that we feel when moving. It is this bodily health that determines our ability to focus ourselves, to be productive, to stay strong, and offers us the shear enjoyment of a supple body that works well.
Being well goes beyond just simple health into enhancement. It is a well-tuned body that will bring it’s owner the most joy and satisfaction. It is a well-tuned body that is able to live and learn more efficiently, effectively, and with greater ease. It is the well-tuned body that is the foundation for our sense of emotional health and mental clarity.
Radiant Running is an awareness- and movement-based therapeutic approach to injury rehabilitation and prevention, performance enhancement, and skillful body use. Employing the mind-body skills that are taught a person can direct their body to move with its natural grace in any activity: powerfully and effortlessly.
By working with the principles of movement, Radiant Running sets the basic building blocks in place. This allows for the fluid acquisition of sports or activity specific skills and for the sense of clarity and freedom of movement that we associate with our best athletic moments, or just when we feel really good!
Beyond the treatment-based aspects of injury rehabilitation, Radiant Running is an educative process that promotes learning. This enables individuals to understand the “how” and “why” of injury in the context of their own specific form, posture, and body use. This becomes invaluable knowledge as they can then apply it to issues that come up in the process of living (which includes athletic pursuits and everything else) and free themselves from the Medical Need Cycle.
