The ChiRunning Technique
Running doesn’t need to be difficult, or hard on your body. The problem isn’t running, it’s the way you run.
At the heart of the technique is running with a strong core and a relaxed body which reduces overuse and impact injuries. ChiRunning shows you all the steps to get there.
Take your running to places it’s never been before. With easy-to-learn technique lessons you’ll gain the confidence and know-how to run as often, as far, and potentially as fast as you’d like.Learn More »
