Ed has been running for years—he loves it. He's done 10ks, half marathons, full marathons, runs on the beach, on hill trails, and anywhere else that he can get that runner's high. He's been teaching ChiRunning and ChiWalking for nearly 5 years, and just became a Master Instructor. For him, there is nothing like the end of a workshop when students leave knowing they have the tools to dramatically improve their energy efficiency and to reduce, even eliminate, injuries.
The fundamental principles that make T’ai Chi the “mother of all martial arts” present us with a skill set to live and grow by. Bring these ancient guidelines to bear on your everyday choices and improve the quality of your whole life. Join ChiLiving®, ChiRunning® and ChiWalking® founders, Katherine and Danny Dreyer, at their first-ever ChiLiving Workshop at the Omega Institute September 17th-22nd, 2017.
Many people have said ChiRunning has changed their life, not just because of the running, but because they transferred their experience and knowledge to the rest of their life. You can apply these principles to: parenting, health and fitness, career, relationships, creative expression, spiritual exploration...wherever your life needs to be rebalanced and supported.
Learn to approach life as a T’ai Chi Master would, focused in your intent, centered in your physical and personal integrity, clear, open and innately responsive to the world around you.
