February 2016 Instructor of the Month:

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.

One Thing to Make Your Running So Much Easier

One Thing to Make Your Running So Much Easier

You can make running easier…after all, why push yourself down the road when you can be pulled…by gravity, that is.

In our last workshop some people found it difficult to let go and let gravity do its job. Whether it’s a mindset that says you need to work hard, or legs that want to be tree stumps and not loose like noodles, the hardest part of ChiRunning® is learning to relax and let go.

How to Focus Your Body and Relax Your Mind

How to Focus Your Body and Relax Your Mind

"Focused spaciousness"… Katherine coined this phrase years ago when she was describing the state of mind she experiences when she applies the ChiRunning and ChiWalking focuses to her movement. You might think she was talking about focusing her mind while relaxing her body. But, what if you switch the words in the phrase to mean the inverse: focusing your body and relaxing your mind.

Finish Line

Finish Line

I hate running. I ran The Columbus Half Marathon because I knew that I could, not because I liked running. Actually, the thought hit me the day my dad crossed the finish line at his first half marathon. In my mind, he was the last person that I thought would run that far, and I thought that if he could do it, then I could, too.

Walk Your Way to Better Brain Health and Longevity

Exercise is being shown to be perhaps the most important factor in keeping healthy—physically and mentally—as we age. Exercise changes the way our brain functions and grows, improving the quality of our whole life experience. When we walk fast, regardless of our age, we produce new cells in the hippocampus, the brain area that plays a key role in turning short-term memories into long.

ChiRunning, Your Eyes and Your Vision

ChiRunning, Your Eyes and Your Vision

When we teach ChiRunning®, many people notice that good posture changes the line of their eyesight. Before lifting the crown of your head, your chin is most likely slightly lifted. Notice, right now, where your chin is, then gently lift through the back of the neck and lift your crown (the back of the top of your head) into the air. Don’t push or force. Just a gentle lift. Your chin will come down slightly when you do this…and so will your line of vision.

Chi Traveling

Whether I'm doing ChiRunning, ChiWalking or my everyday ChiLiving, the one thing that never changes is that I'm in my body. It's where I do my most important work… my deeper study. It's my school. My current course of study is to be present as I encounter the world in each moment.
