In the beautiful setting of Dechen Chöling in Limousin, this programme offers 4 full days of meditation and running practice. Under the guidance of Elise’s instructions, we will practice mindfulness meditation and experience how running can be approached with the same qualities of awareness and care.
A typical day will mix meditation, contemplation practices, talks and discussions, running or walking, working on technique, yoga and gentle strength training, with resting and relaxation.
This programme is open to all and appropriate both to beginners looking for a first experience of running, as well as more experienced athletes wanting to develop a sane and mindful approach to running performance.
