A activity

Historical evidence indicates that FM Alexander aka 'the Tasmanian Tiger' aka the 'Wind from Wynyard' was an accomplished half miler (now called 800 meters). This early commitment to running stood him in good stead well into later life as demonstrated by his 'lean and mean' physique..

Sadly the same can not be said about some of those who follow his teachings due perhaps to a misinterpretation of the widening direction!

This workshop aims to help folks find a new direction, away from the fridge. Exploring ways to bring the 'Tiger's' teachings into contemporary running theory and practice... in other words do a bit of running and hope for the best.

We will also look at how the infamous Art of Running technique can be imparted on the naive and unwary in our practices. While no fitness level is required, you will be wanting to move a little so bring shorts and whatever your current choice of running shoe.
