More about The Durable Runner

Alison draws on her own experience with running injuries, running injury prevention, injury recovery, as well as her expertise as a trainer, coach, and yoga teacher, to walk you through simple, practical changes you can implement to refine the way you use and move your body. The result: a well-balanced body with improved durability, alignment, strength, and function through mindful running.

In The Durable Runner, Alison goes beyond simply offering yoga for runners or strength training for runners] and instead helps you pinpoint imbalances in your body, choose the most useful approach for you, and then walks you through creating a sustainable routine that works for you. 

Her insightful descriptions of the patterns you set up in our workouts and your daily lives—and how those patterns affect your ability to move and access the natural strength you already possess—will change the way you approach your practice and your running.

In short, Coach Alison will help you:

  • Become more durable
  • Access your full potential
  • Balance your body
