Walk Your Way

The ChiWalking program offers 12 different types of walks to create a balanced and exciting health program. The "menu" of walks includes: a Cardio Walk, an Aerobic Walk, a Flexibility Walk, a Loosening Walk, a Focusing Walk, an Energizing Walk, a Walking Meditation and more.

The walks are presented in the ChiWalking book in a detailed and understandable way, then summarized in an easy to read matrix which shows the key benefits of each walk.

Put Science to Use with ChiWalking

The ChiWalking technique emphasizes the proper biomechanics of walking including: good posture, loose joints, engaging one's core muscles, and relaxing the peripheral muscles of the arms and legs. This approach makes walking easier on the body and helps improve and eliminate the aches, pains and discomfort of walking incorrectly. Since walking is a basic, everyday movement, when your walking form is improved, the benefits are far reaching.

Harness the Power of T’ai Chi

Use centuries’ worth of knowledge to enhance your walking

ChiWalking has within it the deep philosophical and psychological attributes of the centuries-old practice of T'ai Chi, which presents the opportunity for spiritual exploration and the integration of body, mind and spirit. ChiWalking takes the benefits of walking beyond cardiovascular, aerobic and mental health, by addressing the needs of your whole person; joints and muscles, body and soul.
