What is the Run With Ease Programme ?
As part of your Advanced Oxygen Advantage Instructor Training, you will receive the Run With Ease programme which puts breath at the heart of performance.
Alongside breath, the course focuses on other fundamental aspects of health such as tension and relaxation, and fluid movement.
Since exercise seems to be becoming more and more disconnected from our body’s needs, we have designed a course that takes the focus away from the idea of ‘exercise’ and offers a more principle-centred, mindful approach to functional movement backed by the latest scientific research.
The Run With Ease course offers a foundational framework and skill set to develop good habits that have an effect on mood, motivation, energy levels, and our ability to enjoy running (and walking), no matter what age or fitness level.
You’ll learn how psychological considerations such as acknowledging improvements, understanding your ‘why’, defining success, overcoming obstacles, and developing a sense of community will focus the mind and reduce anxiety, leading to a more relaxed and enjoyable approach to training.

- Why We Run – psychology and biology
