Knees you can run on by Neil keleher

Imagine having knees you can run on (again)

How much would you pay?
I fixed my knees for free. But it took me 20 years to do so. That was 20 years of not running. 
I don’t think I’ve ever felt so consistently good emotionally as I did when I was running regularly. And now I've recently turned 51. And I can run again. 

How did I fix my knees?

How did I get my knees fixed without resorting to surgery? I fixed my knees by learning to feel and control the muscles that directly and indirectly affect my knees. 
I basically became a mechanic. 
But, instead of learning to work on cars or motorbikes, I learned to work on my own body. 
As a yoga teacher I try to teach my students the tools of the trade. Not how to listen to a teacher, but how to learn their own body so that they too can become mechanics (should they choose).

Hi, I'm Neil Keleher

I teach students to feel and control their body. I learned how to fix my knee problems and I can help you do the same.

Knees you can run on

Feel your body, control it, understand it 
(and fix your knees while you are at it)

Do you remember what it was like to be able to run?

Maybe you didn't enjoy running, but you liked the feeling you had afterwards. Or you enjoyed running and the feeling you had afterwards.
But then your knees started to hurt. You had to stop running. Maybe your mood began to suffer. Perhaps you did yoga, but it wasn't quite the same.

I've been there.

I haven't run for over 20 years. My knees started to hurt after doing a race with a lot of downhills. I thought I'd do yoga, get them better and get running again. But then I also had a motorcycle accident which really wrecked one knee, and I've had various other knee and hip problems since. Now it's 20 years later and I'm running again. 

I'm running again and it feels (mostly) great

So what happened? I spent the last 20 years learning to feel and control my body. And I learned to better understand it. 
It took a while because I had to learn it myself with little or no guidance. At the same time, I've been teaching my students to better feel and control their body. And so I've not only learned to feel and control my body, I've also learned how to teach others.

On one occasion, I twisted my knee trying to catch an errant ball. I could barely stand on the knee and I wondered how I would teach my classes. 
Through a happy accident, I not only figured out how to make my knee not hurt while standing, I also learned one way to improve flexibility. And it all revolved around muscle control.

What you'll learn

Fixing your knees isn't a case of doing certain exercises mindlessly. Instead it's learning to feel and control the muscles that directly (and indirectly) affect your knees. 
  1. You'll learn how your knees are designed to move (they do more than just bend and straighten). 
  2. You'll learn how both your feet and your hips can affect your knees. 
  3. And you'll learn how posture can be used to affect your knees also. 

You'll also learn exercises to help you improve your ability to feel and control the muscles that work on your knees. Through these exercises you'll learn how to operate your body with pain free knees. 
It's a lot like learning to drive a car or a motorbike, but with a bit more detail. 
And where learning to drive a car you have to learn how to deal with traffic, with this program, the traffic you learn to deal with is "internal traffic", the changes that happen within your body as you use it.


That seems like a lot because it is.

There's a lot that goes into learning to operate your body so that you knees don't hurt.
That being said, when you break the learning down into clearly defined simple chunks, the learning becomes easier. 
It can even become enjoyable in its own way because you aren't just doing exercises. You'll be experiencing your body (and getting into the flow as you do.)
And better yet, it's not some dry anatomy text you are learning. It is your own body. 

With this course you won't learn to pop your pecs. (They have little relationship to the knees after all). 
  • You will learn to feel and activate other muscles. Lots of them. 
  • And you'll learn basic principles for activating muscles in general. 
  • And you'll learn the different muscles that can affect your knees.

A very practical course.

Imagine learning something and being able to apply that learning in all aspects of your life. Wouldn't that be "worthwhile learning?" Wouldn't that be practical.
With knees good enough to run, you'll improve your ability to feel and control your body in a way that is applicable to any activity, not just running, and not just making your knees pain free. Now, anytime you learn something new, you won't have to learn your body because you've already learned it. You can focus instead on the new skill that you are trying to pick up. 

There is a lot of content!

If you look at the table of contents below you'll see that there is a lot of material. It can seem daunting! And that's why it's drip fed to you. You can focus on learning little bits at a time. 
If you have a question or a problem, you can message me. 
If you want me to check on how you are doing an exercise, you can also send me a video and I can give you feedback.

Still not sure?

If you aren't sure whether this course will suit your needs or not, shoot me a message. (There's usually a little message box at the right-bottom of your screen.) Let me know what you are looking for. I can answer your question(s) directly and even give you a preview of some of the course if it is relevant to any of your problems. 

Guarantee

And if you still aren't sure, know that this course comes with a 30 day money back guarantee. 
There's always a risk when you buy something and it's nice to know that you can get a refund it what you bought doesn't meet your expectations. 
If within 30 days of your initial payment for this course you decide you aren't happy, let me know and I'll issue you a refund. 

Another type of guarantee

As well as offering the above mentioned 30 day money back guarantee, I'll do the best that I can to answer questions, and provide alternate exercises where required. And if I think that I can't help you, then I'll let you know that also.

Testimonials

Neil,  I am amazed how much I have learned from your videos.  You are remarkable.  After years of practicing yoga, this is the first time I actually was able to do crow pose.   Your instructions are fantastic.  I am so happy I found your channel.   Yoga is a beautiful journey - many blessings to you.
FeFe B
Very helpful video. Thank you so much! Your technique allowed me to perform crow after months of frustration from not being able to accomplish it. All of your videos are the best....I am a fan:
Noel Belcher
thank you so much! 
I've been doing yoga for 6 years but I'm of the little-muscle mass population (ie. I've got chicken arms, and nothing seems to get me strength there!) and your video got me doing crow properly for the first time ever. 
Alana Hb
Mr Keleher, thank you so much for sharing your knowledge. I really really appreciate the contents of the videos, the information about anatomy and also about body awareness. That's what I  mostly miss in classes and I am so glad I found your videos! Thanks so much!
Dulce Regina
This was so helpful. I've been trying these poses for months with no success and your tiny tips about muscle isolations made all the difference and everything clicked.
Reese Finkelstein
This is the most informative instruction I have come across about the chaturanga.  Since practising it the way you advise, I no longer feel a strain in my shoulder joints.  I wish all yoga instructors would explain the anatomy and mechanics of this posture in detail the way you did.  This is so very helpful.  Thank you.

S chmidt
after 3 years of trying bakasana, I came across your video and was finally able to do it. the part about feeling the weight shift was especially useful because it allowed me to be more conscious and therefore had more control over the pose. As opposed to jumping into a pose and "hopefully getting it right". i hope that i can make the same kind of progress w your headstand videos!
Dixie Chan
I have had pain trying to lower my knees in crosslegged position or sukasana as well as butterfly position for the past two months and it's varied in severity over the weeks, but has prevented me from comfortably enjoying activities like carpet time when teaching kindergarten, yoga classes and other workouts. Following along with this video, straightening my back, then individual legs, both legs and finally doing the foot pressing and foot extensions helped me to release my hips more than anything else. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and providing this valuable resource!

I have been trying to do this for the past two years. Never has anyone given such perfect instruction on shoulder and elbow technique. Watching your video has meant I am able to finally lift my feet off longer than ever possible and without pain in my neck. Finally feel hopeful on getting this powerful asana. Thanks Neil you are so knowledgable and patient, anyone can do it now with little practice by watching this video

This was so helpful. I've been trying these poses for months with no success and your tiny tips about muscle isolations made all the difference and everything clicked.

FAQs

Will this course really make my knees good enough to run on?

I honestly can't say for sure. It depends on the nature of your knee problem. I've had various knee problems, and the exercises I present here are based on my own experiences fixing my knee pain. If you aren't sure, you can give it a try for 30 days. If you aren't satisfied by the end of that period you can ask for a refund.

How long will this course take?

That depends on the state your knees are in now plus the amount of practice (and the quality of the practice) that you put in. 

How is the course taught?

The course includes a mix of video lessons and text. The video lessons explain exercises and talk about general principles of feeling and controlling your body. 

Is there a way to contact the teacher?
