Intimidated by running? Want to improve your existing skills? Imagine finishing a long run having more energy than you started with, and heading out the next day fully recharged, without back pain, shin splints or blisters. In this class, you will learn the fundamental techniques of ChiRunning®, which seamlessly blend the science of physics with the principles of Tai Chi. ChiRunning® will enable you to use gravity to your advantage. Whether you have never run, suffer from running injuries or feel you have reached a plateau and wish to improve your skills, the study of ChiRunning® will reward you in ways you have to feel to believe. This is not a muscle-driven, mindless, grin-and-bear-it style of exercise. ChiRunning® will teach you proper biomechanics and how to communicate with your body while infusing you with the joy of running. This is very different from anything you have been taught and it does take time to learn but you will feel the potential from the very first session. And, the more you do it, the more you will love running!

ChiWalking® also available. This is a good place to start if you want to ramp up slowly, if you are obese or if you are suffering from a condition such as osteoporosis. If you like to walk, you will love ChiWalking®.
