In 1999 it was Katherine who convinced Danny that ChiRunning was worthy of their focus and attention. As she says, “As soon as I heard how people were responding to Danny's classes, I knew that it was important that this information get out to more people.”
As co-founders of ChiLiving, Inc., Katherine and Danny have spent the last seven years writing the ChiWalking and ChiRunning books and newsletter, producing the DVD's and other materials and teaching classes and Instructor Training Courses throughout the country and now abroad.
