Who should attend this camp?
Down Dog Yoga Running Camp is for new or inconsistent runners looking to build a running habit that includes strength and mobility training for injury prevention and a strong running foundation. No previous yoga or running experience is required. Anyone who wants to build confidence in their fitness and create a consistent running habit through a 6-week running plan and group support should consider joining this course. Runners and yogis should however, consult with their doctor or a medical professional before beginning a new exercise program.
Why should I attend this camp?
If you have ever wanted to start running but needed some outside motivation to stay on track, the Down Dog Yoga Running Camp can help keep you accountable for the duration of the 6-week program. During our weekly live group sessions we will talk about the challenges we had that week sticking to the schedule and look at solutions for getting the work done. Coach Breanna will also provide Monday motivation talks to keep you motivated. This program also features guidance on proper warm-ups, cool downs and basic strength training.
Is this in-person?
No, this a virtual running yoga camp and you can participate from anywhere with internet and computer access. You will however be able to connect with other campers via the weekly group sessions and a camp Facebook group for campers and coach only. This might be a great way to meet others living nearby to do your runs together.
What if I can't make the virtual sessions?
The yoga sessions will be recorded and you will be able to view them later. The group sessions will not be recorded so that participants feel they can speak freely. During the first week of the camp, I will attempt to find a second alternate meeting time for those who cannot make the original and will add that second meeting time to the schedule.
What if I change my mind or can no longer attend the camp?
Unfortunately all purchases are final. No refunds or cancellations will be accepted. You will have access to the course for 90 days so if you cannot attend the original 6-weeks, you have an extra 6-weeks to do the course on your own.
Are there group runs?
Because this is a virtual camp, there are no group runs currently scheduled. It is possible depending on how this first camp goes, that a second level two camp could be launched and include group video runs for those who have access to treadmills.
Will I lose weight?
It's possible that increasing ones physical activity, especially running, can assist with weight loss, however I make absolutely no promises that you will lose weight. There are a lot of variables regarding weight loss and it would be irresponsible of me to make you a promise I cannot keep. Please consult with your doctor and possibly an dietitian or nutritionist if weight loss is your main goal.
What if I have more questions?
Please email ContactBreOutside@gmail.com with any additional questions.
Isn't $280 dollars too expensive for a "virtual" program?
$280 dollars works out to about $46-$47 dollars a week. Each week you get two live yoga classes and their recording (valued at $180). In addition to that you get a 6-week running plan (valued at $40) and a warm-up, cool down and basic strength training video series (valued at $60). You also get a guide for new runners with tips on getting started (valued at $10) and weekly group support sessions to connect with your peers (priceless) and a Monday motivational talk from you coach (priceless). Think about how much money you spend at Starbucks, eating out or at the vending machine each week and consider reallocating those dollars towards your fitness goals. Or if you spend money at the gym per month or have other monthly subscriptions, what are those adding up to? It is a lot upfront, but for a 6-week period I believe it's fairly priced.
