This article is very helpful to those of you who would like to improve your running and walking. For those who would like to have just a few tips, here are some suggestions to make your running more enjoyable and body friendly.

  • Sense where your ears are, your occipital ridge and the bottom of your cheekbones.  This is where your head sits on the top of your spine.
  • Make sure that your head is tilted ever so slightly forward on the top of your spine .
  • Now think your head “up” and allow your whole body to follow lengthening and your rib cage widening.
  • Notice your whole body following with ease and greater flexibility.
