Master Class - Yoga For Runners & Sport

You get back from a run, stretch your hamstring half heartedly (just the one!) then end up rushing around on to other things? Or do you get home and immediately start eating and forget about stretching?
if this sounds like you, you need to redress the balance and add a stretching routine. It is the single most important thing you can do to prevent injury. And it will improve your running and breath work.
This 75 minute class will be held on Saturday 23rd January from 8.15-9.30am upstairs in a Little Dippers Centre, 40 Upper Gardner Street.
The class is suitable for everyone so it doesn't matter if you have never done yoga before or you know your surya namaskara from your trikonasana.
Run by founder, Rachael Woolston who is a qualified teacher this class will draw on aspects of Sivanada, Yin, Juvamukti and Ashtanga yoga.
You will go away with your own post run capsule stretch routine, making it easier to slot it into your every day routine. If you're contemplating the Brighton Marathon or Half then you should seriously consider doing this. Cheaper than shelling out hundreds on a physio once you're injured!
It costs £15 per person but spaces are strictly limited. Book via PayPal button on the right.

The FitBitch Dashinstas - aka the running group

If your life is so busy you find it impossible to fit scheduled exercise in your life, running is the answer. It's cheap, you need nothing but a pair of running shoes and you can get out whenever you have a spare minute.
That said, motivation is always an issue and making sure you push yourself hard enough for you to actually improve is another matter all together.
That's why we have launched The FitBitch Dashinistas, a running group that works towards a running event as a target goal.
Our runners have had fantastic fun and enormous success, in fitness and figure shaping terms, with our previous two groups. In September we raced through the streets of Paris after training a group of beginners and intermediate runners to a 16k race. Next week, after eight weeks of training another group tackle a 12mile cross country run in Hampshire.
This time around, we're doing a 10-16week combined running group for those running the Brighton Half Marathon in February and the in March.(there are a group of us travelling here for a weekend if you want to join).
Don't worry about not being fit enough, or not being challenged if you are fit. Our groups work unlike any other running groups to work you according to your fitness levels.
Price for a 10 week training plan for the Brighton Half, with one led run per week is £50 or £65 for the 16 week plan aiming for the Lisbon Half. Knock £25 off if just doing the runs with no training plan.
Here's the list of training runs(these may be subject to change but this will be agreed in advance if it becomes necessary).
