Editorial Reviews

Review

“Rarely have I seen a book on running, in particular on running mechanics, actually hit the mark and make an impact on my coaching. Yu’s sense-able approach connects the dots for so much of what I have seen over the years when working with elite athletes. Improving running form is not a one-step or one-method process. It is a coming-to-terms with who we are as humans first and athletes second. This book rekindles our desires to explore, to play, and to expand our sense of self. Never have we needed this mind-body connection as much as we do now. The art of running should bring us joy, not injury. Slowing Down to Run Faster is here to show us the way.”
—Terrence Mahon, head coach and founder of the Golden Coast Track Club, and Adidas Endurance Coach

“Edward Yu has done something quite remarkable by showing us how we can use the Feldenkrais Method to run better. If you do the exercises in this book slowly and with awareness, you will indeed run faster with less effort. More importantly, however, you will learn how your running can teach you about yourself and how you live. This, in turn, can transform your running from mind-numbing exercise into a practice that is healthy for body, mind, and perhaps even soul.”
—John Tarr, music teacher and Feldenkrais Assistant Trainer

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Edward Yu is a Feldenkrais Practitioner, currently splitting time between Europe, North America and Asia. His interest in how people learn and process information has led him to bring the disparate fields of martial arts, dance, kinesiology, somatics, psychology, cognitive science, evolutionary biology, information theory and physical education into both his teaching and writing. The impetus for his first book, The Art of Slowing Down, came years after he quit running and triathloning and discovered that conventional approaches to training are not so effective in turning people into better athletes (though they are quite effective in making them discouraged and neurotic).

In his free time Edward likes to roll around on the floor, walk in circles and stare into space.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is “The Art if Slowing Down: a sensible approach to running faster” repackaged!!!
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on July 5, 2020
I am beyond disappointed in this so-called new book “Slowing Down to Run Faster: a sensible approach to movement” by Edward Yu. Having read “The Mass Psychology of Fittism” published in 2015 and his first book “The Art if Slowing Down: a sensible approach to running faster” published In 2010. Here in lies my great disappointment, the new book is nearly the exact same book “The Art if Slowing Down: a sensible approach to running faster” for 276 pages. It is the old book “The Art” with small modifications and one new section Lessons 21-26 and a rewritten Acknowledgment. This is a rip-off for those of us who have the old book and I spent top dollar for maybe one new chapter - 40 pages. What is most distressing is there is no indication provided that this is essentially and updated version of the same book. It is literally a repacked and I am not amused. I may send it back. IF YOU HAVE “The Art if Slowing Down: a sensible approach to running faster” YOU MAY NOT WANT TO READ IT AGAIN WITH ONE NEW SECTION. ED you lost a reader.
