Are You A Runner? Do you want to run faster, further, with less effort & fewer injuries?

Then you’ve landed in the right place

Alexandra Merisoiu, The Body Engineer, is the Founder of The Merisoiu Technique – Institute Of Health And Human Movement and Dracula’s Retreat. She is also a qualified Low Back Pain Management and Prevention Exercise Instructor and REPS registered .

She works with runners, beginners and advanced, who have a passion and want to excel through strong foundations. It is more than just fitness and fun, it is body mastery based on Martial Arts Wisdom and Natural Human Movement that will help runners:

– reduce the risk of injuries
– help recover from current injuries
– improve performance – speed and endurance
– run lighter, smoother and more fluid

This is done through natural movement fitness and running technique and mechanics drawn from the many disciplines Alexandra has studied throughout the years, including long distance running.

A taster session will give you a taste of how The Merisoiu Technnique works and how Alexandra coaches. Depending on which day you choose you will learn about one of the elements a runner need to run stronger, faster and with fewer injuries.

You could be experiencing a session on running technique, jumping technique, crawling (lots of core work here, essential for runners) or maybe balance and body weight transfer (what is running if not balancing on one leg) or fluid movement. Every session has a different theme and all come together to form a complete runner. Every session we work on something new or develop what we have already learnt.
