Online Resource: ChiRunning Simplified! Video

Presentation video on the ChiRunning Principles, Position, Motion and Benefits

What is ChiRunning® (cont.)?

ChiRunning combines the principles and inner focus of T'ai Chi with running to create a revolutionary running form and running philosophy that reduces impact and makes running a safer sport.

ChiRunning applies simple laws of nature and physics to align your body and your motion to cooperate with the natural forces all around us. ChiRunning is based on postural alignment combined with muscular relaxation. ChiRunning teaches us to be more process-orientated, with more focus on how we are running, instead of primarily goal-orientated, where our main focus is the grasping for expectations of speed or distance at the expense of our overall health.

ChiRunning makes running accessible and appealing to new runners, to people who have stopped running due to injury, to those who are concerned about the potential for injury, to anyone who wants to have a competitive edge, and to those who appreciate a mindful approach to their fitness program.

Half-Day ChiRunning Clinic

In this workshop you will learn the essential ingredients of the ChiRunning® Technique.

Clinic Format (typical):

The program will be guiding you through many exercises and drills designed to leave you with a clear sense of what the ChiRunning technique feels like in your body. We will spend time alternating between demonstrations, fun exercises and technique drills. We will not be doing lots of running, contrary to what you might imagine, and the workshop is equally suitable for all skill and fitness levels. There will be a small portion of the workshop held outside to be able to put together all that you have learned. So check the weather forecast and dress appropriately. Please bring water and snacks if needed.

• Introduction to the ChiRunning Form

• The Keys to Effortless, Injury-free Running

• The Physics of Running: Run without Using Your Legs

• ChiRunning versus Power Running

• Posture, Lean, Lift, and Arm Swing

• Injury prevention techniques

• How to conserve energy at any speed

• Learning to use your gears

• Personal check-in tricks and tools

• Core muscle drills and exercises

• Innovative technique drills

• Pre-run body looseners

Clinic size is limited to ensure a quality experience. You will get lots of personal attention and enjoy a rich learning experience to help you run injury-free for the rest of your life. Each participant will receive handouts of the material covered in class. Pre and post-clinic phone and email support is also included as necessary.

[Note: A 3+ Hour ChiRunning Clinic is very similar in content to the Half-Day+ Clinic format. A 3+ Hour ChiRunning Clinic provides all of the essential lessons/exercises/drills necessary to learn the ChiRunning technique. In some cases, Pre-run Body Looseners or other content may not be covered in a shorter clinic format.]
