Sophrology Living in harmony

Are you looking for a way to sharpen your mental focus, relax your body and improve your running performance? Sophrology could be the answer

While mindfulness is a household term nowadays, you would be forgiven for not having heard of the practice of sophrology. However, its popularity is on the rise throughout Europe, and in France and Spain it is commonly off ered to help relieve stress and improve mental clarity. But what exactly is it? “Sophrology is a wellbeing and self-development guided practice – an evolution of meditation and mindfulness – that blends Eastern philosophies and Western science to tap into your resilience and strength, so you can deal with life’s challenges more eff ectively”, explains Dominique Antiglio, sophrologist, founder of BeSophro and author of Th e Life- Changing Power of Sophrology.

About Women’s Running

Our new-look magazine is going from strength to strength, as are our tribe of happy runners! This issue we spoke to Mara Hafezi, a runner who is defying both her own and others’ expectations by sailing through the Marathon des Sables and by encouraging women of colour to take up running. If you’re inspired by Mara, our beginner’s guide will get you off the sofa and into your trainers in no time, and then for a bit of extra motivation, you might want to have a glance at our half marathon training guides. There’s one for beginners as well as for those of you who want to smash your PB at the next 13.1-miler. We focus on speedwork this issue too, and how building on your speed can power the rest of your running – even if it hurts while you’re doing it! Plus this issue, we’ve got the only core workout you’ll ever need: build it into your running schedule to see quick results with your strength and speed on the road. Then wind down with our feature on Sophrology: just how can this mindful practice help us live more in the moment and actually run better?
