(even if you’re just starting out, tight & stiff, frustrated or injured)
I don’t have time to do yoga. I’m way too inflexible, anyway…
What if I told you that doing just 1 short class a week, taken from my intentionally structured framework of yoga and functional fitness classes, could mean the difference between running forever feeling like:
a hard n’ painful slog, with limited progress and constant set-backs
– and feeling springy and strong, able to go further and faster than ever?
As you see the results come in quick, you’ll want to do 2, then 3, classes per week – and start to see some serious success!
And you don’t have to be, or even become, super flexible – I’ll guide you each step of the way to easily developing just the right flexibility, alongside stability, to optimise your body for running.
What I teach isn’t so much how to become bendier – but how to optimise your body to run better.
I’m here because I believe that running should be enjoyed, not endured.
The problem: due to modern life, most of us develop poor postural habits, lose core strength and lose good mobility… This negatively impacts the way that we run, as our body follows the path of least resistance! Nobody is teaching you how to run as we would before modern life took over, let alone how to prime your body in order to achieve it. My goal is to provide you with the tools and resources you need to make running easier, faster and fun.
Because running is simply natural movement, that should feel easeful, graceful and fun.
And why we’re Connected
The Connected Movement is a yoga inspired movement membership that seamlessly integrates with natural running form
– for improved strength, mobility and flexibility + lighter, more efficient, graceful running.
Designed to optimise your running
To get you moving more efficiently, fast!
To keep you accountable and celebrate your wins
Membership library of 200+ classes, structured plans to follow, new classes each month, – and a community to cheer you on as you reach new milestones and hit your goals! 🎉
Let’s break down your roadmap to moving and running… like a gazelle!
The Connected Running Roadmap – a clear and proven, running technique roadmap, for any runner to follow, that enables running to be easier, more natural and efficient. Let injuries be a thing of the past, and lightness, ease, joy and progress be your new reality!
how to optimise posture and take it into your run
build good core strength and mind-muscle connection to it
learn how to maintain steps 1 and 2 to benefit from gravity on the move
reprogramme your running-body to lift from the heels, not the knees
how to improve foot landing to maximise push-off power and efficiency
what to do with your arms to tap into this often lost resource
how to optimise your personal, winning, leg-swing cadence
Tutorials are simple n’ snappy – bitesize lessons to do before a run and implement what you’ve learnt as you go. Gradually build upon the last lesson, so that, before long, you’ll feel like a new runner/ feel like Tigger, too! (See what Paul says below!).
And that’s just the beginning.
You’ll also have access to this goldmine of videos – but have no fear of overwhelm, I give you a plan each month to follow, to take the guesswork out of choosing classes!
Total Value…? I could put something in the thousands…
But what amount would you value being able to run pain and injury free, to move with ease and vitality? – I’d say it’s priceless

Finding it hard to just go for a gentle run now as all these little technique tips and checklists start firing and before I know it I’m in full flow again! Thanks for helping me rediscover the joy of running.
Been able to run further than I have for years and am loving it!
“Incredible. I started running 2 weeks before I found this course and was finding it really hard work. Then I found Run Better with Yoga!! I have gained significantly core strength and my body shape and tone has dramatically improved. This has enabled me to learn to love running again with no injury. After staggering through a mile and a half before the course, I am now enjoying running 4 miles alternate days, Amazing and so motivating.I am also weirdly calmer and more positive. Spooky for the family!
I am finding the classes very beneficial especially for turning on glutes and activating the core. I realised that although I have a strong core developed through my yoga practice, I hadn’t always been switching it on when walking, standing and running. This is where your course is effective because I am starting to really pay attention to the position of my pelvis and core, especially when standing, walking and running.
I’m really enjoying the classes so far. I find the instructions really clear. I find that I’ve been really connected / aware of my core muscles when I’ve been running this week, which has helped! I’ve only just gone back to running again recently so I feel like I’ve lost a lot of stamina. However, doing this course is helping me a lot with motivation to keep going and to understand my running body better!
I’m extremely happy with the results of my yoga practice with your program!!! I haven’t been able to follow a strict daily routine but I try to do some classes whenever I can. I can feel the benefits so much! My running has been feeling so good. I’m more aware of my posture, my breathing, and how each part of my body feels while running. It’s been really like a moving meditation for me recently. I ran a 21kms race last Sunday and it was such an amazing experience! I’ve never felt so present, healthy, strong and motivated in a race. THANK YOU SO MUCH! I intend to keep increasing my Yoga practice this year and definitely following your classes and tips!!Inés
Get a medical professional’s opinion on whether you should do exercise to help your injury. Unless it’s a severe injury that needs rest above all else, in most cases you are going to benefit more from the right strength and mobility work. This is where the Injury Pathways come in. When you join, you can head to this category to start the most appropriate classes for you, to get you fixed up and ready to take on the main curriculum 💪
No, I’m not going to tell you that you need to wear barefoot shoes. I am going to help you build stronger, more resilient feet and ankles to run with greater efficiency. Then, we can talk about footwear, if you want to 😉
Now is the best time to start, my friend. We’ll go gradually and bit by bit you will increase your flexibility and notice a difference in the ease of your movements.
I’m so excited for you to start running! That being said, I want you to get off to the best start possible and learn great running habits from the get go and start achieving your goals.
I am going to help you to see progress from Week 1 – and to celebrate every small win you make from there. Obviously it’s different for everyone and depends on the effort you put in, but real transformation can occur in 3-12 months – a short time for a life-time of joyful movement!
As you get immediate access to all the classes, there is no refund option. However, all plans can be cancelled at any time before your next rebill date easily from within your account.
