Walk before you can run:

Stand
A simple, static, yet fundamental skill; posture alignment by correct weight distribution and proper use of the feet is essential.
Walk
Walking barefoot, the simplest form of human locomotion, reconnects your brain with the sensory information coming from the soles of your feet.
Squat
Squatting correctly will help your overall posture and will help your balance, strength & flexibility in your ankles, knees, hips and spine.
Jump
Jumping correctly will help posture, balance and flexibility and increases dynamic strength and elasticity in the running anatomy.

Learn how to run:

Posture
When moving a correct posture keeps your centre of gravity in the right place: preventing any unnecessary forces on the muscles and joints and ensuring efficient locomotion.
Rhythm
Correct rhythm, 3 steps per second (or 180 per minute), helps utilise your tendons and elastic recoil for more efficient movement. Shorter strides help you achieve natural cadence.
Relax
Perfecting good posture and correct rhythm will eventually lead to relaxed locomotion. A relaxed body uses a lot less energy as it runs and is the sign of a master in any sport.
