Runners Workshop with an Olympian

Event Details

Many of us have taken up running recently, or maybe you’re an experienced runner who wants to go a little further in distance or speed. Then join Maria McCambridge and Chris Molloy for this Runners Workshop with an Olympian, Friday 26th March @ 7pm – 8.30pm via Zoom.

Cost – €20. 20% discount to those on 30 days of yoga.

Maria McCambridge is a long distance runner who competed in mostly 3,000 & 5,000 metre races before moving to marathon running with a PB of 2:35 in Dublin 2012, mother, wife. She has represented Ireland in the Olympics and competed in 3 outdoor & 3 indoor World Championships.

During this workshop Maria will take us through how she got into running, what motivates her, what her training looks like now and before having children. How you unlock your body’s full potential, through mind & body strength. Recovery, nutrition for optimum health & training meal planner. Coming back from injury.

If you’re starting your running journey what are the key points to know? Is it a good idea to vary the length, speed of your run. Format of speed, how to improve long distance time. How do you run faster for longer. Maria will share her most enjoyable marathon course in the world & what she’s looking forward to (post lockdown).

Chris Molloy, yoga teacher (not an Olympian), wife & mother will then take people through 5 simple Yoga poses that engage the main muscles (quads, glutes, core) we use when running to increase mobility & help reduce possibility of injury. I will talk about efficiency of breath. Engaging the core when running and look at balance and why it’s so important

Why do you run? Answer that honestly and then help to find out your motivator for improving. In sports & exercise we are either working with or against our bodies. Through this workshop we will seek to help you understand how to work with your breath, to gain insights & techniques from an Olympian to improve your overall running performance. If you’re new to running this is perfect to ensure you start in the best possible form.

There will be time for Q&A at the end. 


I was so sad and sorry when my last yoga teacher decided to move home to Italy. I thought I would never find a better teacher & then… I found Chris. She delivers a wonderfully unique class which is a marriage of movement and breath. Her class delivers a complete workout for whatever level you’re at, whilst being easy on the body and calming the mind. I look forward to every class and have never felt stronger or better.

Christine conveys an immense passion for yoga. Her energy is palpable. She also has a discerning understanding of how the body works when practicing yoga. I really enjoy her classes which leave me feeling full of positivity!

Christine is a great yoga teacher and I recommend you give her a go.  She is very spiritual but her love of family and her surroundings come through clearly in her teaching - I have wished so many times to be with her in Dublin on the beach, in the studio, in the park! I have loved her classes via Zoom and her early morning Rise and Shine class has been a fantastic start to my day.  She is very knowledgeable and clearly puts a lot into planning each month and each week. Her classes are well prepared and she takes time to explain positions with variations too so that it is suitable for many levels. Having practised with her for 6 months, she keeps her practice interesting with different themes so that no 2 classes are completely the same.  I am loving my yoga journey with her and look forward to it continuing for many years.

Absolutely love Chris’s yoga classes. It has become a staple part of my week to keep my mind clear and my body right. Chris is a fantastic teacher and I especially enjoy her meditation and reflections during class. Chris herself is such a fantastic person both inside and out and her light is infectious!
