Leading the World in Effortless, Injury-free Running and Walking
For over two decades the Chi Team has been teaching people the skills to enjoy running and walking for a lifetime, and how to how to turn their sport into a practice for moving through life in a mindful way.
ChiRunning has its roots in San Francisco, where Founder Danny Dreyer first started teaching his revolutionary technique in 1999 and Katherine envisioned how to educate more people. The brand blasted onto the international running scene in 2004 with the publication of ChiRunning: A Revolutionary Approach to Effortless, Injury-free Running, (Simon & Schuster) co-authored by Danny and Katherine.
In 2009, after five years of incredible success, the book was revised and rewritten, during which time, the technique became a household name. Bolstered by an extensive international community of Certified Instructors, self-published training programs, DVDs and audio programs, the ChiRunning technique has a loyal, every-growing base of happy, injury-free runners and walkers who also use the Chi themes for healthy, mindful living.
