Gliding across the pavement with ChiWalking

August 21st, 2010

I am a 48 year old woman and I walk 3.5 miles a day. Just found out about the Chi Walking technique and tried it this morning, Aug. 17, 2010, for the first time. Wow! I'm amazed at the difference. My walking pace was faster and I felt as if I were gliding across the pavement rather than a heavy hard step each time. I could also feel my hips rotating with each step. Another positive addition to this approach, more lung capacity as mentioned in Danny's videos. The momentum I felt is incredible with this technique, no more breaking with my heal. And I'm expecting my bruised heel to finally be able to heal now.

I am so grateful for finding Danny's videos and this technique to walking and running.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!



ChiRunning began to enrich my life on July 3, 2010 when I read the first 100 pages of the book and went for a run, and just focusing on ankle lift made a difference! My running life continues to transform and create joy! I smile when I run and love every minute. I am thrilled and grateful to be part of this ChiRunning community. Thank you for the opportunity to pursue becoming an Instructor.
