"This program was the turning point of my life ! I highly recommend it !"

Rebhia Ghezali CFO Middle East and North Africa Region - International SOS

“My name is Ankit, and I work as a procurement excellence professional. I am from India and I live in Malaysia since 2013.

I want to thank Stephane for exposing me to a whole new outlook toward running. I enrolled in the Tao of Running program mid of last year, and there hasn’t been a single week since then without a run. Through the program, I have learned to truly enjoy the experience of running and it helps me center myself and be more self-aware. I feel a stronger connection to nature and it inspires me to keep growing on this path.

The holistic benefits are undeniable. I have been suffering from health issues post-COVID and it was getting worse. The regular practice and nutritional changes have helped strengthen my immunity, and be in good health.

If you are seeking holistic growth physically and mentally, no matter at what stage you are in life, this program is for you.

I am thankful to Stephane for these invaluable learnings”

Ankit Ahuja Procurement Excellence

"I thought I had signed up for a running coaching program but I received so much more than that. Stephane presents a holistic approach to improving one's lifestyle through his Tao of Running transformation.

And a transformation program it is! He does not only advise on proper running techniques, but he also offers a complete toolset to develop healthy habits with nutrition, mindfulness, etc.

The results are quick to show: I enjoy running regularly again despite previous injuries to both knees, the quality of my sleep has improved and the occurrences of my migraines have reduced significantly. Add some weight loss to that and joining Stephane's coaching has been the best investment for me last year.

I highly recommend it to anyone who wishes betterment in their lifestyle."

Nathalie Richez

"This is not a new year resolution… It's a lifetime resolution!

I am 44 yo. And I didn't know how to breathe. I didn't know how to run. I didn't know how to eat. I didn't know how to be at peace with myself. Now I do.
I (re)learned it through this great program. Lasting impact on your well-being!

Good for your body, your mind, and your soul. Try it and (re)connect with your true self."

Laurent Duvilier Regional Chief of Communication, Latin America - UNICEF

"A few months ago, I was diagnosed with lung disease. I was new to running and ready to give up. But I was already addicted to this sport and I wanted to persevere.

Thanks to my meeting with Stéphane, and through the program Tao of Running, I was able to move beyond my illness... Each module of the program was a step towards my new balance... running techniques, breathing, mindfulness, serenity, acceptance, and resilience...

Today, I practice running several times a week with a lot of fun! Stephane accompanied me step by step to find my own pace, my own "running style", and I cannot thank him enough for that. Tao of Running is a fantastic program created by a fantastic coach! Thank you Stephane !"

Elodie Pinot

“Thanks Stephane for the support, inspiration, and coaching…
From panting at 400 meters to running my 1st 6km, then 10km, 15km, and finally a Half Marathon, it has been an amazing journey…
I could not have dreamt of this in just 4 months…

The best part is how I do not experience any pain after all the runs thanks to the preparation, training regime, and techniques imparted…. I went around Melaka the whole day after my 15km and did the same in Ipoh after my 21km… Essentially means I ran for myself and spent the rest of the day with family… This means all parties are happy!

Finally, you were not just a Running Coach. I always refer to you as a Lifestyle Coach to my friends. From nutrition to running and mental conditioning, you really supported me through this journey with the right amount of tips. Thanks a lot!“

Note: Rohit lost 19 kgs in about 8 months by combining running, mindfulness, and nutrition new habits

Rohit Nambiar Group CEO - Tune Protect Group

From 'I HAVE to run' to 'I WANT to run'!

"I started to run occasionally almost two years ago when I was in my early 40s and realized that some physical exercise should be good, not only for my body but also for my mind.

From a practical perspective, running was the most convenient activity as I could practice it whenever and wherever and could be easily accommodated within my existing (and busy) professional and personal life. However, unlike other types of sports which I used to practice and enjoy, running was an activity that I hated all my life. It became like a sort of a challenge: the more I run the more I hated it.

Then, I stopped for a while, but I felt guilty and restarted again, but again I stopped, restarted, stopped… Then, by coincidence, I came across Tao of Running.

Stephane is a passionate trainer and teacher. His knowledge and his background are amazingly broad and his statements and pieces of advice are deeply supported. Through his coaching sessions, I progressively started to feel what he was telling in the 'classes' was not any more theory but real.

Following Stephane's techniques and mindfulness advice I've started to run smoothly, wisely, aware of my physical sensations, then the overall benefits flew naturally.

Personally, I am feeling healthier, with more confidence as my physical condition has improved; it has also impacted positively my professional life as my levels of stress have decreased and mindfulness has helped to analyze obstacles and behaviors from a different perspective, resulting in better overall performance."

Ana Alvarez Business Development Director Malaysia - Airbus

“Combining the lessons I learned from Stephane has allowed me to lose 20kgs and incorporate a number of healthy habits into my day.

Once I learned to run more efficiently, I was able to run daily without injury or any of the aches and pains I would usually experience, and my speed has increased. It became a habit that makes me feel good, productive, and gives me a sense of accomplishment every morning.

And the daily exercise habit combined with new nutrition/intermittent fasting habits has turned on my fat-burning engine as I would never experience before, and my resting heart rate is down to 45 from 60 before.

I have never felt better by living the Tao Lifestyle.”

Jim Roberts Global Head, Information Security Risk Officers, Standard Chartered Bank

“Go for it if you haven't tried it yet!

Stephane's intelligent and very professional coaching allowed me to overcome my stress and give me the boost I was lacking!

Excellent training for both body and mind! My husband is in it too!

In short, Stéphane deserves his excellent reputation."

Nathalie Arbefeuille Business owner

Robert Aaron

"If you are looking for a program to spark your joy of running and learn about why and how aspects of your lifestyle impact your overall health, then I highly recommend Tao of Running.

Stéphane translates his deep knowledge and passion for running and well-being into an interesting mix of practical techniques and insights that allow us to take action to benefit our health, performance, and happiness.

The program content is powerful and impactful and, most importantly, Stephane is a great support and coach during the process. Personally speaking, it was a great experience and I look forward to keeping in contact with
the Tao of Running community!"

Robert Aaron

Virginie Dupuis

“Stephane is an incredible coach. His program is not only a method for running, but above all a holistic approach to well-being through running better, breathing better, eating better, and regaining balance to feel good.

I thought it was impossible for me to run... now I have fun running and it even solved my back problems !!! A MUST without moderation... I am addicted.

Thank you, Stephane, for sharing your passion. Best coach ever!"

Virginie Dupuis Business owner

"I was new to running and joined the Tao of Running to learn how to run to prevent injuries and enjoy running. I achieve this and much more!

I realized that the program’s real strength is how Stephane uses running to improve not just our fitness, but also our mental, and emotional health and well-being.

His clear, step-by-step instructions, focusing on the link between body and mind, have made me more confident and focused. I am more energetic, think more clearly, and handle stress better.

I highly recommend Stephane and the Tao of Running to anyone wanting to grow in running and in life!"

Maxime Grenier Cyber Security Consultant

“I have completed 4 marathons and yet this program helped me learn to love running so much more!

For the first time I can do long runs without the need for music, and just totally enjoy the rhythm of my heart, the scenery, the cadence of my run. Mindfulness helps not just in running but in other areas of my life as well.

Thanks Tao of Running ! Thank you for your coaching, Stephane !”

Joy Santamarina Chief Transformation Officer - Energy Development Corporation

" I am 72 years old and I am a long-time runner. I have run more than 20 full marathons and many more half-marathons.

Age is not a reason to stop improving and I decided to sign up for the 10-week program with an open mind to see what I could get from it.

I can definitely see a lot of benefits from this program. I was beginning to feel dejected in my recent long-distance runs. I was more enduring them and my time and speed were stagnating for a while.

The mind and body training techniques learned during this program are making me more alert, mindful, and enthusiastic in all aspects. I have also increased my running efficiency. As a result of that, I am improving again my speed. I have trimmed 30 min in my last ½ marathon compared to the recent ones. And, I still foresee some opportunities to continue improving my time and enjoying more my runs.

Thank you for your coaching, Stephane !”

Oon Hoe Cheng Retired

"I joined the Tao of Running to learn how to run and breathe to regain energy and vitality.

It went well beyond my expectations! This program does not only integrate running techniques but also encompasses breathing, nutrition, meditation, and even elements of neuroscience.

I did not take this program alone. I chose to live the adventure as a couple with my husband Laurent. We had neither the same sporting level nor the same expectations. We supported and encouraged each other. And, above all, we welcomed this art of living in our home!

Stéphane was able to adapt to our pace and our disparate needs and was very attentive to both of us. A big thank you to Stephane for guiding us on this path to fulfillment and well-being!"

Valerie Penet

"Thank you, Stéphane for reigniting my passion for running through the 10-week Tao of Running program! As a former ultra-trail runner, I had lost my spark, but this program not only brought it back but exceeded my expectations.

What I loved about the Tao of Running was that it went beyond just running techniques. The combination of practical tools and diverse exercises rejuvenated my desire to run and engage in other sports. The disciplines we explored all over the program offered a comprehensive self-improvement package.

Stéphane’s coaching was key in helping me reframe my approach and establish sustainable routines, which have become a part of my life. While I may not planning an ultra-trail just yet, I'm back to running regularly, a vital aspect of my mental and emotional balance. Thanks again, Stéphane!"

What Other Participants Say


"Taking part in the Tao of Running program gave me the ability to run and enjoy it. Feeling the body and liking the movement, the feeling of being in nature, etc... has been a big achievement for me.

But, what I liked the most about this program, is that it is a 10 weeks course that gives you so much knowledge that you can continue on your own. I'm grateful that Stephane has guided me through good and hard times. It is life skills and a lifelong lesson.

Today, I feel healthier, my overall well-being has improved a lot, my skin is better, I have fewer sick days, much fewer headaches and my digestive system has improved.

Thank you, Stephane! You are a wonderful mentor and a big inspiration!!"

Christina Rosthof

"As a beginner to running, I was very pleased to join this program mixing running sessions and teaching meditation and mindfulness.

Learning has been smooth and the benefits rapidly noticeable: running has become a real pleasure, connecting body and mind has been a good way to control my stress and improve my sense of well-being, having regular physical activity has helped me to lose weight without feeling any hard efforts…

Even though I had to leave Malaysia, I still continue to learn and improve my practice of Stephane's teaching. I still practice every week and it still gives me the same pleasure and benefits. Also, a few times a year, I run half-marathons that I select not only for running but also for melting with awesome environments whether they are urban or natural.

Because Tao of Running is not only about running but also connecting the body and the mind with the world."

Note: Thierry has lost more than 25 kgs since taking part in this program!

Thierry Guillem Finance Director - Vinci Group

"Stephane is an excellent coach. As a mental health professional his techniques – a more natural style of running, embedded in mindfulness and a modern view of nutrition – really resonated with me.

Following his techniques allowed me to find – or rather make – those much-needed breaks in my very busy days. Apart from that, he is a lovely man. I thoroughly recommend Stephane."

Michaela Lakota Clinical Psychologist

“ Thank you Stephane for your coaching & continuous support!

I discovered the Tao of running in 2015. As a regular runner, I was not expecting major changes… but after the 10 weeks transformation program and a few half-marathons, I realize that it changed completely my vision and perception of running from the way to move, the way to use my mind, the way to breath and even the way to eat!

I completed my first half-marathon in June 2016 after a preparation based on long runs in the happy zone (1h52). One year later, I ran the SCKL with a more specific program, and I improved my performance by 7min.

And on Dec 4th,2017, with my running partner for 2 years (Loic ), we were running the Angkor Wat Half Marathon. Based on a 12 weeks program prepared by Stephane – more performance-oriented but still based on Tao principles – I beat my previous record by 10min (1h35).

This run in the middle of the temples was amazing… The day after, we felt so great that we were already thinking about our next objective with Loic… KL FM in April 2018! What a fantastic experience, everyone can find his own pleasure and satisfaction with the Tao of running… beginners likewise more experienced runners.

And the last thing, since I am practicing mindfulness regularly inside and outside my running practice, I manage better my stress of my day-to-day life and I feel better in my body and my mind! Well done Steph ! “

Jerome Desmarest APAC Deputy Cost Control Director - Technip

"Seeing the transformation that the Tao of running made in the lives and running techniques of my colleagues, I decided to give it a go.

I had two goals - learn to enjoy running and to be mindful. Thanks to Stephane I achieved both with the added bonus of sleeping better too!

Stephane knows his stuff, cares about your success, and gives you options to adapt what he teaches to your lifestyle"

Marianne Clark Representative Unicef Armenia - UNICEF

After 10 Week Transformation Program in 2015:

"Tao of Running is an astonishing & original approach. It is more focused on learning/experiencing feelings and understanding oneself.

Stephane is passionate. He communicates his enthusiasm in a cheerful manner that makes the coaching sessions very comfortable.

Stephane managed to create a very original program that allows people from all backgrounds to feel how running can become rewarding without pain.

This is not theory, this is a living experience combining very interesting techniques and psychological approaches to encompass sport under a new angle, to feel one's body."

Loïc Martineau Entrepreneur

"I stumbled upon Stéphane's Facebook page by chance and reading through it got me interested. I then checked his website and I contacted him to see if I could do the program from abroad (I live in Belgium).

After telling him what my goals were I started the 10 weeks training. My objectives were to 1) stop hating to run 2) connect my body and mind. I did not aim at running a marathon but simply to start enjoying the act of running.

I received really more than expected! Stephane was really committed to this long-distance training; He shared his well-organized program with me as well as some very valuable and interesting videos and articles. I really enjoyed the means of communication we used (Skype and WhatsApp).

All and all I highly recommend this program and most importantly the trainer Stéphane. Thanks to him running is no longer a chore!"

Laetitia Bouazza

"When I decided to join this program, I could understand the benefits of running for physical and mental health but I was not doing it because I was finding running to be painful and not pleasant.

After this program, I am convinced that running is a natural and pleasant thing. I now find a sense of well-being and accomplishment in the activity of running.

Else, I'm still struggling practicing mindfulness but I have the feeling to be at the beginning of a mindful journey!"

Antoinr Comar Regional Head of Logistics Operations - Lazada

"Before joining the Tao of Running, I did not think I could jog for more than 5 minutes. So, I was intrigued by this 10-Week Transformation program and I decided to take part in it.

This well-researched and very informative training was extremely beneficial for me. It made me progressively change my mind about running and motivated me to practice regularly during the 10 weeks.

Having finished it, running is now part of my habits and routines and it makes me feel happier and healthier. On top of that, I have more free time as I don't have to drive anymore to any exercise classes as I was doing in the past."

Claire Nutgen

"I have been running for a long time, albeit sometimes more regularly than others. I typically hit the road when my body asked for it. This was like a call for a physical "detox".

However, depending on how long it was since my last run, I often came up with the desire to give it all out, push it to the limits. In some ways, I guess to compensate for the "feel bad" sentiment that I could have for not being active for a while. Surely then my body let me know that I went too far, with heart rate hitting the ceiling and legs aching after the run.

Tao of Running opened my eyes to a better approach. First by going back to basics and (re)learning how to run properly, but then by opening a door to another dimension, linking up body and mind. The latest is most certainly the largest benefit from taking on this course, as it allowed me to learn and practice how to better be in sync with myself during my sessions.

The enjoyment during my practice is by far greater, as I can now exercise, relax my mind and feel good in one go. I am looking forward to fine tuning my experience using Tao of Running techniques."

Laurent Maillefer VP Robotics - ABB

“Initially, I found running extremely boring so “to start liking to run" was my major goal when enrolling.

After the 10 weeks, I enjoy my runs, and I am looking forward to progress along this running journey. I warmly recommend the program to anyone new to running, people who struggle with including a sports routine in their life, or who want to better understand the mind-body connection."

Sophie Costes

" I am 72 years old and I am a long-time runner. I have run more than 20 full marathons and many more half-marathons.

Age is not a reason to stop improving and I decided to sign up for the 10-week program with an open mind to see what I could get from it.

I can definitely see a lot of benefits from this program. I was beginning to feel dejected in my recent long-distance runs. I was more enduring them and my time and speed were stagnating for a while.

The mind and body training techniques learned during this program are making me more alert, mindful, and enthusiastic in all aspects. I have also increased my running efficiency. As a result of that, I am improving again my speed. I have trimmed 30 min in my last ½ marathon compared to the recent ones. And, I still foresee some opportunities to continue improving my time and enjoying more my runs.

Thank you for your coaching, Stephane !”

Oon Hoe Cheng Retired

"I had major surgery a few months before starting the Tao of Running program. I wanted to improve my techniques to be able to use running as a way to come back in better shape.

With Tao of Running, I learned the way to run without stressing my body. It has now become a habit that I practice on average 3 or 4 times a week and I feel fitter, more energized and I have started losing weight."

Deborah Whitehead Business owner

“My husband and I were struggling with our running technique for many years, despite having run a few half-marathons. The run was never really that enjoyable until we got to the finish line.

Then it all changed with Stephane. He taught us how to run in the ‘happy zone’ and as a result of this, we now really enjoy our runs. He introduced new concepts of mindfulness during running. His passion is contagious and after each class, we were all totally revved up to go running !!!

Whether you are a beginner or a pro, a runner or simply looking to make a lifestyle change, we would totally recommend you get in touch with Stephane. Totally worth it.“

Sharada & Kareem Qureshi

“The 10-week transformation program has delivered much more than expected.

I had several “a-ha” moments over the weeks and it has provided access to a huge amount of information summarized logically, presented in a fun and user-friendly manner. It is like 3 entire courses about running, mindfulness, and nutrition and how they relate to each other rolled into one!

For example, it allowed me to change a long-held mindset of 'all or nothing'. I run now 3 or 4 times a week without strain. I have more clarity, focus and I am better able to observe my thoughts, feelings, and actions. I have also increased my ability of body awareness/sensing in the present moment.

I highly recommend this holistic and transformative program!”

Nadene Tensen

"Running used to be a painful and energy-draining activity for me. Participating in the Tao of Running program helped me to commit some time/energy to do something and change the status quo.

The innovative Tao approach to running made me change gradually my perceptions and my feelings about running. My runs became more pleasant, more relaxing and my capacity to run longer distances has increased throughout the program.

Now, I do feel more motivated, healthy and I have a sense of "inner satisfaction" after each long run. Otherwise, Tao of Running provided me insights and techniques applicable in my everyday life to increase my well-being in general."

Michael Benamar Global Segment Manager - Charles River Laboratories

"The benefits I have gained from this program are immense and unexpected when I started. I have replaced my old sentence 'running is not for me. I hate it' with 'I cannot wait to go for my run!'

I strongly recommend this program to everyone. I have learned to listen better my body messages and how not to make the mistakes that many make through ignorance and misinformation.

I am surprising myself with the distance that I can run today with pleasure. I also practice mindfulness on a daily basis.

Thank you Stéphane for this discovery and for giving me the tools to make running a moment of pleasure and mental rest. Thank you for your listening and your availability as a coach!"

Michele Gilles

"Running is something I have been practicing to some extent, occasionally and on rather short distances. I felt good about some of the runs, and not so good about others. I was sometimes tired, sometimes not. I also wondered whether the way I was running was 'right' or 'wrong'.

Then, I followed Stephane's program. What a chance and a revelation. Thanks to Stephane's well-thought program, I got the opportunity to progressively understand what I can feel during a run and why, and how to better enjoy my runs so that it naturally pushes me to do more of them.

You may have heard or gone through other programs before, but the uniqueness of Tao of Running is the strong link that it progressively establishes between physical activity and the impact on the mind. Today, I can sense my positive emotions and put them in a broader context that I never experienced before meditation. And enjoy running to its full extent.

I recommend Stephane's program to anyone who wants to improve his running skills and capitalize on them to develop a positive mindset, and anyone who always wondered about what benefits running can bring to his/her life."

Pascal Business Development Director - Nokia

"Stephane's approach to running is truly unique. Positive, enthusiastic, attentive, and encouraging, he does miracles (really).

For personal reasons, I did not practice as regularly as advised during this program and I cannot say that running has become a habit yet. But, this program has really reconciled me with running.
When I practice, it is not a pain anymore. The only thing I remember at the end of a session is a feeling of well-being that will take me all day. It overturns everything one might think to know about running and the approach of a sporting activity in general.

Likewise, Tao of Running goes further than the activity of running. It opens a larger view of life and how a lot of things are integrated. It is similar to a rippling effect. For example, it opened my mind to the fact that I need to structure and organize my personal life a different way if I want to build a long-term balance and create a habit so that running becomes an integral part of my life."

Alexandra Levaillant Office & Communication Manager - Strane Innovation

"The Tao of Running 10 Week Transformation Program has completely changed my running experience.

Before the program, I was applying a "no pain, no gain" approach to running. I had to force myself to run 3-5 km knowing that it was making me tired and moody. I just finished the program and now I can easily run 10 -12 km.

I can say that running helps me to rejuvenate my body and mind, to feel happier and more energized. I have also lost a few kilos in the process."

Note: Bruno lives in Singapore and has taken part in a 1 on 1 remote version of the program

Bruno Vanhoucke Managing Director - Blowfish Pte Ltd

"I took part in Tao of Running 10-week program to prepare for the running part (20 km) of a Spartan race. It gave me a totally different perspective of what running can be. What used to be a pain became a pleasure in a matter of weeks.

My old me would have been stressed out for weeks before the race but it was not the case. I was ready to enjoy the race and it is what I did whatever the obstacles that came in my way!

Additionally, I feel more relaxed and I have a better awareness of my body in my daily life.

Until today, I am amazed by this discovery and I am now considering running even longer distances.
Thank you Stephane for your secret weapon Tao of Running!"

Frequently Asked Questions

Question 1: Is this a running program ?  No, it is more than that! 

While running is a key component, this program is much more. It's a transformative journey integrating mind-body strategies and tools for holistic health, resilience, and habit formation, leading to a balanced and fulfilling life.

Question 2: I'm soooo busy 😩. How can I fit a 10-week program into my busy schedule? 🙄

The program requires a manageable commitment of about 2 hours per week for personal practices, not including the comprehensive 7 modules conducted on Saturday mornings. This modest investment leads to substantial improvements in health and well-being.

The benefits extend far beyond the direct advantages like enhanced sleep, energy, and mental clarity. By participating in this program, you'll notice an enrichment in your daily life, marked by increased creativity and productivity. The time you dedicate to the program is an investment in enhancing the quality of your entire day. In the end, the efficiency and well-being you gain significantly outweigh the time invested in the practices."

Question 3: How are you different from other health and performance coaches? 

With more than 25 years of experience, I bring a comprehensive, holistic approach to health and performance. My unique method blends the interconnectedness of various life aspects – from exercise, breathing, and sleep to nutrition, brain function, and emotional balance.

This transformative approach is rooted in a rich tapestry of disciplines, including running, mindfulness, neuroscience, NLP, and the sciences of sleep, happiness, and flow. My extensive exploration and multiple certifications across these areas are a testament to my commitment to holistic well-being.

In this program, I guide you in harmonizing the different elements of your life, creating a synergy that fosters profound personal transformation. You'll learn to tap into your inner resources and tailor a lifestyle that enhances your fitness, health, mental acuity, and overall well-being, aligning with your unique needs and goals."

Question 4: Is this program open to beginners? I am a complete novice. Yes it is! 🙂

Absolutely! This program is designed to accommodate all fitness levels, emphasizing enjoyment and the development of mind-body practices through running. Whether you're a beginner starting with a mix of walking and running, or an experienced marathoner seeking to enhance your practice, this program flexibly adapts to your unique journey. It’s tailored to help you progress at your own pace while enjoying the transformative mind-body experience. 

Question 5: Can you tell me more about how the program works during the 10 weeks?

The Tao of Running Transformation program is a comprehensive journey, suitable for both beginners and seasoned runners.

Throughout the 10 weeks, you'll engage in:

  • 7 Training and Coaching Sessions: Spanning 2 to 2.5 hours each, these sessions blend theoretical knowledge with practical on-the-run coaching, helping you convert insights into actionable skills.
  • Regular Personal Practice: You’ll be guided on how to effectively practice on your own, typically three times a week, reinforcing and building upon what you've learned in coaching sessions.
  • Comprehensive Learning Materials: Gain access to the essential slides from the 7 training modules in PDF format, alongside practical coaching cards and a detailed logbook for tracking your journey.
  • Continuous Support and Interaction: Stay connected with regular guidance through WhatsApp, receive additional resources like reading material and videos, and - optionally- join in on weekly group runs (available for Kuala Lumpur participants), fostering a supportive community.

By the program’s end, you'll have started a transformative journey setting you on a path to continue this positive lifestyle change on your own. 

Question 6: How can I know if this program will work for me?

Every participant's journey with this program is unique, yet all share in gaining valuable, lasting benefits. With over 300 participants from diverse backgrounds - including seasoned runners and complete beginners, young and old, from various professions and lifestyles - the program has a proven track record of effectiveness and transformation.

While specific results can vary, the consistent feedback is a story of personal growth and positive change. To get a feel for the wide-ranging impact of the program, I encourage you to explore the participant testimonials

Question 7: Does the program include group running sessions?

Yes, modules 2-7 include practical running sessions in group settings, with personalized advice for practice between sessions. Additionally, the (optional) weekly group runs offer extra support and interaction, fostering a community of continuous learning and improvement.

Question 8: What if I am unavailable for a particular module in a group program?

If you're unable to attend a specific module, we offer several flexible options to accommodate your needs:

  • Rescheduling for Group Availability: If several participants are unavailable, we can reschedule the module to a mutually convenient date.
  • Virtual Catch-up Sessions: We can arrange a short video call (using platforms like Zoom, Teams, or Meet) to cover the key theoretical aspects of the missed module. Additionally, I can allocate extra time for you during the next group run or at our weekly run, should you be able to attend.
  • Joining Alternate Groups: If there's another group session covering the same module around the same time, you have the option to join them, either in-person or via video conference.
  • One-on-One Sessions: For a more personalized catch-up, we can schedule a one-on-one session at a convenient time. Please note, this option involves an additional fee beyond the standard group program cost."
