A native of Portland, Certified ChiRunning® and Chi Walking® Master Instructor, RRCA Certified Running Coach, Registered Yoga Teacher, and Certified TRE® Provider Alice Peters Diffely has been an avid runner ever since she competed for Lincoln High School’s cross country and track teams. Alice was a member of Stanford University’s track team during her freshman year of college, until she was sidelined by injuries. She consistently placed in her age group in local road races throughout her 20’s. Competitive highlights include a 3:06 marathon finish as a law school student. Beginning in her early 30’s, Alice experienced recurring bouts of Achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis, which caused her to limit her running for several years. With the help of ChiRunning® and Chi Walking®, Alice has learned to manage, recover from, and avoid those injuries. She is enjoying her running and walking tremendously. In addition to running and walking, Alice practices yoga and meditation regularly. She and her family live in NW Portland. Alice offers group and individual ChiRunning® and Chi Walking® instruction throughout the Portland Metropolitan Area. She also teaches yoga, including Yoga for Runners & Walkers classes, in Portland. More recently, she has begun teaching a unique approach to nervous system regulation called TRE®.
