Aracely Areas and ChiRunning are great!
I have just returned from the Los Gatos ChiRunning workshop with Aracely Areas.
OMG – she was amazing! I was extremely impressed with her ability to diagnose injury prone walking/running habits. In addition to that she prescribed corrective postures and techniques that brought immediate relief.
Her stories were inspirational and her workshop moved at a very relaxed pace. She created a very supportive non-threatening environment where all of us felt encouraged and hopeful. By the end of the day I was quite impressed with how much information I personally had gathered despite the fact that I had read ChiRunning a few years ago. Getting Aracely’s immediate and professional feedback has already made all the difference in the world.
Believe it or not I went from only being able to jog for 30 seconds at a time the day before the workshop to being able to run 15 consecutive minutes the morning after the workshop. I felt great and so encouraged by such a dramatic improvement that I signed up for the Maui Marathon Sept of 2010! THAT is how confident I am in Chi running and Aracely!
Anyway, thanks so much for helping me to get into a workshop at such a last minute notice. I am just thrilled with my new found running empowerment!
