Running The Boston Marathon? Come and gain a mental training advantage on us! Take Move & Meditate at Stil Studio for FREE on Monday 4/14 OR Thursday evening 4/17!
It has been an exhausting year and a very cold training season. As a runner myself, I can really relate to the strong emotions the runners will feel this year as they make their way to the starting line. I understand the lifestyle, the passion for the sport, and the anxiety (which many will deny having) – from tapering struggles, to obsessive race day weather watching, to wondering if one will actually sleep the night before – these distractions can derail all the hard work a runner has put in this winter. I do understand a little something about The Boston Marathon, having completed three myself (2001, 2008, 2011) – I know how hard it is to sit and do nothing that week before… waiting, while all your friends and family are in town wanting to see you and tour this great city.
I’ve also seen enough media coverage this year to know that there must be a balance on how much a runner takes in – so you don’t expend all your emotional energy well before the race begins.
That’s why this week Stil Studio and The Boston Buddha will be dedicating our MOVE & MEDITATE class to anyone running The Boston Marathon – FREE. Stop by on Monday night 6:30 to 7:30 PM or Thursday evening from 7:00 to 8:00 PM. We will settle in with some light stretching to help calm your nerves and overcome any doubts you may have.
The theme and meditation for next week will be on letting go of difficult emotions.
MOVE & MEDITATE is a weekly class at Stil Studio (Legacy Place in Dedham) that combines the balance of a gentle flow with a healthy amount of relaxation and meditation, to help students recharge and melt away stress from every part of their body.
On Mondays (Betty Riaz & Andy Kelley) and Thursdays (Jen Howell & Andy Kelley) the class consists of a 30-minute simple slow flow Vinyasa series in a dimly lit room followed by a 25-minute guided meditation, based on themes ranging from willpower to releasing anger.
