STORY

Kundalini Running founder Doug Wilson overcame a life threatening brain tumour in 2013 and used Yoga & Meditation to support his rehabilitation. In just over 12 months after suffering extensive cranial nerve damage, meningitis and leaving hospital in a wheelchair he became the first person to run 7 competitive marathons on the 7 continents in under 7 days. Doug now  teaches these valuable techniques for maintaining health, wellbeing and coping with stress in the modern world.  His scientific knowledge toward yoga is backed up by practical, real world experiences that make his classes and workshops informative while opening the body, mind and spirit.
