Why does trying harder sometimes become an exercise in futility? Why does following "expert advice" often lead to little or no improvement? What if there were an efficient way of learning that could be applied to every area of human experience? Drawing from the principles of Bagua, Taichi, and Feldenkrais, Edward Yu presents an innovative approach to running: power, speed, and agility are more related to your ability to sense your own body than to willpower or raw talent. Centering the art of running as an explorative, creative, and somatic-based practice, Yu shows us how to run faster by learning to become more sensible--that is, more sense-able--through the playful and systematic exploration of movement.
—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

A central idea in the book is that in order to improve in any area, it can be helpful to slow down and notice what we are actually doing, rather than just trying harder. I have applied this idea in my life many times and although I can forget to do it, many times I find that there are better, more efficient and easier ways of doing things,, I just have to S L O W D O W N..
(It's rather shocking 10 years have gone by since its release. I enjoyed the book so much, I'd gifted several.)
Edward's an astute seeker. I can't wait to read his new material, his updates and go through the additional lessons. He's a gifted writer (and Feldenkrais provider and teacher) w much to share. How could this new version be anything but great?
