Tao of Running 10-Week Transformation

A Fit Body, A Sharp Mind, A Happy Soul! 

Human Beings Are Supposed To Be Fit, Healthy, Peaceful, Balanced, Focused, And Truly Happy... 


But The Fast-Paced Sedentary Modern World Has Negatively Impacted Our Health, Performance & True Happiness...

We have become really busy and are constantly overwhelmed by responsibilities and unending to-do lists.  As the years go by, we can feel our energy levels as well as physical, mental, and emotional health draining away. This isn't normal and this isn't right. I designed Tao of Running to help people feel like humans at their best again, not just machines waiting to break down. You will know that program is for you if more than a handful of the following statements apply:

  • You find yourself feeling moody and irritable
  • It seems like you're always tired and 'low in energy'
  • The idea of running and jogging seems painfultiring, not really for you
  • You struggle with weight loss and/or improving your overall health?
  • Your last blood test made your doctor frown and/or suggest a healthier lifestyle
  • You tend to get injured easily from exercise 
  • You feel exhaustion instead of exhilaration from exercise and running 
  • You regularly feel nervousanxious, and/or worried?
  • You feel burnt out or even depressed
  • You are exhausted of this continuous tyrannical little voice in your head
  • You feel the need to create some 'space' for yourself
  • You experience brain fog and lack focus/concentration during your day
  • You have difficulties making good decisions, prioritizing your work and delegating
  • You lack creativity and /or intuition
  • You exercise regularly but it does not really help to improve your health and well being
  • You need an activity that you can do anytime, anywhere

According to Daniel Lieberman, chair of the Department of Human Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University and author of the book, "The Story of the Human Body", human beings went through 3 main “cultural revolutions” in the last 10,000 to 15,000 years – which represents less than 1% of the time of the history of human evolution - and our brain and body were not able to adapt and cope biologically with them: 

  •  The Agricultural Revolution 
  • The Industrial Revolution 
  • The Internet / Digital Revolution 

These revolutions have completely changed the way human beings move, think, eat, sleep, live in community, …

More about our evolution ... 

The human body and mind could not biologically cope with these cultural revolutions and it is one of the main root causes of chronic stress, modern diseases, and unhappiness.


Chronic stress is the number 1 killer of our modern world. According to the American Psychological Association, chronic stress is linked to the six leading causes of death: heart disease, cancer, lung ailments, accidents, cirrhosis of the liver, and suicide. And more than 75 percent of all physician office visits are for stress-related ailments and complaints.


But, it does not need to be like this, human beings are supposed to be fit, healthy, peaceful, focused, and truly happy. We can see some “living proofs” of this with the Tarahumara community. The Tarahumaras are a tribe of Indians hidden in Mexico, Copper Canyon. They have never been exposed to our modern world practices and they have had an unchanged lifestyle for ages.

  • They are not violent and they do not fight. They never entered into any conflict with the conquistadors. They hid in the Copper Canyon where they still live today.
  • They run mega-marathons not marathons. The act of running is part of their daily life and they do it with a sense of freedom and joy a smile printed on their face.
  • They are free from our modern diseases such as cancer, autoimmune diseases, cholesterol, clinical depression, etc...

It is more about giving you nutrition principles to be able to choose your food appropriately and improve your ability to change bad eating habits.

"Running was something that I thought I couldn't do. However, Stephane's Tao of Running course allowed me to understand the mechanics of running and to not be afraid of something that we are born to do.It also gave me a deeper understanding of how life is so hectic that we don't just stop and think about ourselves. Learning more about mindfulness has allowed me to focus on my new business and my productivity has increased 10 fold.Thanks, Stephane for your amazing journey and teachings. Running has never been so enjoyable."

“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.

“For many years, I have tried to incorporate running into my life without success. I was aware of the benefits but I was not taking any pleasure.A few months ago, I joined a group program of the Tao of Running – 10 Week Transformation. Since then, I’m running a few times a week with great pleasure. It is now part of my lifestyle.Stephane is a passionate and inspiring holistic coach with deep knowledge in many topics related to personal development and human sciences. He is also an active listener. Even in a group setting, he does his best to personalize his approach to the needs of each participant.”

"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!"

" 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 !”

"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."

“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."

“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!”

Frequently Asked Questions

Question 1: Is this a running program ?  NO!

Of course, You will learn running form and techniques to run efficiently and avoid injuries. It is part of the program. But, it is MORE THAN THAT. This is only a means to an end NOT the aim of this program.

With this program, you are accompanied for 10 weeks to take better responsibility for your life. It provides various mind-body strategies, techniques, and tools that you learn to apply inside your running practice to rewire your brain and re-balance your nervous system. 

This leads to the various outcomes of improved health, fitness, feeling more in harmony, more balanced, and confidence to navigate with resilience in our highly unpredictable fast-paced modern world.

Last but not least, you develop new habits and routines during the 10-week duration that at the end they become an entire part of your lifestyle. That is why we can say that this is a mind-body transformation through running.

Question 2: I'm soooo busy 😩. How do you want me to do this for 10 weeks 🙄?

I agree with you, time is a limited resource and we all have only 24 hours per day. This program will take you about 2 to 2.5 hours per week for your running practice [3 times a week for 30 min to 45 min] and about 1 hour per week of mind training practice [only after the 4th week].

So, in total it will take about 3.5 hours per week. If we do basic calculations, we have a total of 168 hours in a week [24 X 7 = 168 hours]. 3.5 hours per week is not even 2.5 % of this total time.

Another consideration, time is a scarce resource but what you do with your time depends on your ATTENTION to make the best of your AVAILABLE TIME. And… this program will help you to: Train your attention to be able to make better usage of your time during your day while collecting the health and wellbeing benefits of moving your body. Enjoying the process will be the cherry on the cake !

That is all the beauty of this program. When you will master the tools and techniques, you will hit 2 birds with 1 stone. You will collect the benefits of the movement of your body WITH the benefits of rejuvenating your mind at the same time. The time you will spend will be regained a few times by the benefits you will gain from the practice. You will start 1) sleeping better, 2) have more and more stable energy, 3) manage your stress better, 4) increase your intuition, 5) be less distracted, 6) have more creative ideas, more perspectives to solve problems, and so on…

Question 3: How are you different than other health and performance coaches out there?

According to the Tao philosophy and many other pearls of traditional wisdom, everything is inter-connected. This is valid at a human being level as well. The way you exercise, the way you breathe, how you sleep, what and how you eat, the way you use your brain, and so on... everything is inter-related. One of the key strengths of this approach is that it helps each participant to connect the dots to balance the different pillars and avoid/reduce "internal frictions".

Stephane has iteratively built this transformative approach over more than 20 years of a personal quest to create his own bridges and connect the dots of his life to improve his own health and well-being [you can read his story for additional details]. The strategies and tools are backed by science, and, Stephane has developed skills - most of them certified-  in many areas of health, performance, and wellbeing like running, NLP, mindfulness, nutrition science, the science of endurance mastery, the sleep science, the science of breathing, the science of happiness, neuroscience, change management... You can see read about his credential in Stephane's profile

That is why he is well placed to guide participants on how to create these bridges and to interrelate and align the different pillars to reinforce the transformation effect.

Along with the program, the participants incrementally find in their inner resources how to balance better their life to move the needles of fitness, health, brain performance, and well-being in the right direction for their specific needs.

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

The program is not focused on performance but on improving health/well-being through the practice of running first. Each participant will have a different level of fitness and experience related to running, meditation/mind training techniques, breathing techniques, nutrition and sleep sciences, and so on.

The program focuses on providing tools and techniques to better listen to the body and connect body and mind to progress at the right pace based on the level of fitness of each participant.

By enjoying the practice, it motivates the practitioners to do more of it and the performance becomes a natural outcome of the regular practice.

Some participants have never run in their life and might start by mixing walking and running at the beginning. Other participants have already run [half-full] marathon(s) and want to enjoy more their runs, prevent injuries, be less tired, have more efficient running techniques. 

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

The Tao of Running Transformation program is a 10-week journey towards elevating your fitness, health, mental performance, and overall well-being. During 10 weeks (can be adjusted for a 1 on 1 program), you will experience a fulfilling sense of incremental progress towards your specific goals.

During that period, you will:

  • Take part in 7 training and coaching sessions (2 to 2.5 hours per session mixing theory and “on the run coaching”). In between the sessions, you will receive guidance on how to practice on your own (usually 3 times a week) to build the knowledge into your mind-body and transform it into skills.
  • Have the key slides of the training material for the 7 modules in a PDF format.
  • Have regular interactions with the ToR Coach to share your challenges and progress and receive additional reading material, videos and apps for additional facts & details about the science behind the program.
  • Have a set of coaching cards to support the personal practice and the 10 Week Transformation Program logbook to support the personal practice.
  • Receive a video montage to provide feedback on posture and running form and summarize remaining opportunities of improvement at the end of the program.
  • Be invited to the weekly group run in which all the old and new participants since the creation of the program in 2015 are invited to join (You will continue to be invited to this weekly run after the end of the program).

By the end of the program, you will have initiated the transformation and will experience an increased fitness, health, sense of balance and well-being to motivate you to continue in this direction. It will become an entirely new lifestyle!

Question 6: How can you say if this program will work for me?

Everyone will find something different and will move out of this adventure with a different outcome. But surely everyone will have gained something they will value for the rest of their lives.

More than 250 participants with their different and unique profiles... men or women, young or "older", with or without a job, with or without a position of responsibility, sick or in good health, seasoned runners or perfect beginners, cartesian or mystics, father or mother, single without children,... will answer that question by themselves with a unique testimony of the impact that they got from this program.

The numerous testimonials given during these last 7 years [you can read some in the praise section] can give you a good flavor of the effectiveness of this program. 

Question 7: Does it include running sessions in group?

The introductory module (module 1) does not include running. Modules 2 to 7 include theory and the practical part of running (except for video conference programs) - in a group for group programs and coaching in 1 on 1 for the private version. These sessions take place in Damansara Heights or Lake Gardens for the programs organized on Saturday morning. Weekly group run sessions are also organized on weekdays between modules (see question 3).

Each module generally has a duration of 2 to 2.5 hours. Each participant receives a logbook at the start of the program with specific advice on how to practice and integrate learning during personal practice between modules (advised to practice 3 times a week). In addition, coaching cards - digital version for video conference programs- are given at the end of each module to support / reinforce personal practice and there are regular WhatsApp interactions between modules for participants to ask questions and help them meet their specific challenges.

Question 8: What happens if I am not available for a particular module ? [Question for group programs]

There are several possible scenarios:

  • Many people can't make that day, we simply reschedule to a date that fits all.
  • We organize a short conf call (e.g., Zoom) to go through the key slides of the theory with you and I spend more attention during the following group run of the following module or during the weekly run (if you can make it).
  • If I happen to have another group having the same module at a close by date either in person or by skype, you can join that session.
  • Last option, if the person wants it, we can organize a complete 1 on 1 session of the module at a convenient date (For this option an additional fee will be applied to the normal group program fee).
