Mike SpinoBeyond Jogging
Mike Spino, former director of the Esalen Sports Center, teaches some of the primary techniques of his renowned ‘Beyond Jogging’ method in this new DV Tapes course. With instruction designed to optimize performance and enhance the overall athletic experience, Spino draws on strong spiritual foundations and insights cultivated through decades of writing, coaching world-class athletes, and leading workshops at Esalen Institute and beyond.
Mike met Esalen co-founder Michael Murphy in the early 70’s, and while Murphy was Mike’s meditation and inner-space mentor, Mike became Murphy’s running coach. Under his direction, The Esalen Sports Center became a phenomenon that drew spiritual seekers and athletes from around the world and culminated in the iconic ‘Beyond Jogging’ manual.
Mike’s friendship with District Vision was initiated in 2017 with a series of workshops, retreats and a limited-edition release of ‘Beyond Jogging’ on this website.
