What others are saying… 


“After having experienced a terrible setback last summer, I never thought I could run and feel good while doing it. Today, I felt like I could’ve gone longer and there was so much joy inside of me that I literally shed tears when I finished. Thank you, from the deepest place in my heart, for allowing me to feel such immense joy while doing something that I never thought I could enjoy…boy, was I wrong.”


“When I first started running high school cross country and track as a freshman, I had debilitating shin splints. My coach recommended that I try ChiRunning because my problems were related to my form. I haven’t had a problem with them since. When I graduated from high school I held school records in multiple distances and I was awarded Athlete of the Year. I couldn’t have done it without ChiRunning, and I highly recommend it to anyone who struggles with leg pain.”


Ever stared at your running shoes in dismay as you wonder how the heck you’re going to get past this nagging pain you’re dealing with? 

Or felt like you could really enjoy running if you could just figure out how to make it not feel so damn hard?

Or had that sinking feeling, “How am going to keep up with the running group today?”

If you want to run better,

with confidence and without pain,

for the rest of your life

– you’re in the right place.   

A Message from Danny

DD Red Jacket

Learning good technique is the #1 way to improve your running.

I’d like to help you succeed.

Running is a frustrating process for many people. So, if that’s you, I want to reassure you, you’re not alone. It can be really daunting and disappointing to realize that you’ve put a lot of effort into your running and you’re just not seeing the results you’d like (yet).

Hi, I’m Danny Dreyer, and I’m the founder of ChiRunning, author of 3 best-selling books on running, walking and marathon training.  I’ve been helping runners of all levels, from total beginners to elites for over two decades.

In 1997 I began combining my practice of T’ai Chi with my long distance running. By bringing these two great disciplines together, I’ve helped clients accomplish all their running goals: get rid of injuries, improve performance and become devoted runners for life.

ChiRunning has now been published in 12 languages and has sold over a half million copies. We have Certified ChiRunning Instructors in 27 countries. We've also been written about and featured in the NY Times, NPR, CNN, Washington Post, Shape, Elle, Glamor, ABC News, Runner's World and many more media outlets all over the world.

The reason behind both success and failure is all in the technique.

I have been a guest speaker at the Boston marathon as well as Chicago, New York City, Marine Corps, Air Force, San Francisco and San Diego marathons.


In other words, I know how to help any runner run faster, easier and injury-free.

It breaks my heart when I see runners throw themselves into their running, and then experience loss and confusion when they get injured or don’t improve as much as they'd like.

The reason behind both success and failure is all in the technique. If you know how to run well, you will succeed. And, if you don't have those skills in your body.. you're bailing water in a leaky boat. After seeing how hard it can be for runners, at any level, to get the results they deserve, I created an effective and easy online course where I'm coaching you every step of the way.

I know how to help you get started running, or become a better runner. But, mostly I can show you how to prevent injury and make your running easier and injury-free… at any speed.

I would LOVE to take the

guesswork out of this for you.

This course will literally save you years in trial and error

... and copayments to your physical therapist.


But maybe you’re not sure if you even need a course in running. Many runners just go out and run.

Many folks say, “I ran as a kid. Why should I pay to learn how to run?”

But, here are 3 of the biggest problems I see in runners… all the time.

The 3 Biggest Running Mistakes

1. People don’t use their whole body for running and seriously overuse their legs

Most people think that running is all about your legs and don’t realize how much easier their running could be if they brought in the use of their upper body, their core and especially their mental focus.

2. People don’t adapt their running technique to match their circumstances

There are lots of changing environmental situations in every run. Why would you respond the same way to every one of them? It doesn’t make sense. The ChiRunning technique takes changing conditions into account by making you infinitely adaptable as a runner.

3. People don’t get rid of what slows them down before adding strength, power or force

For years the running coaches and pundits have told us that the only way to get faster is to get stronger legs. But, the best way to get faster is to get rid of the running habits that waste energy. You’ll get faster without increasing your effort.
