Having just moved to Seattle, I was feeling unusual aches/pains while running up and down some of the steep hills in the area. These aches were indicative of something wrong with my running technique and so I decided to contact Beth to show me the ways of Chi running. Long story short, I learned more from one run with Beth than from a year’s worth of Runner’s World and countless hours watching youtube videos of people demonstrating Chi running techniques. Beth’s years of experience really showed through not just in her knowledge of anything to do with running but in the way she’s able to transfer that knowledge.
Years ago, when I began running races, I “ran through the pain”. I lost countless toenails, pushed through my knee pain, stuffed my feet into shoes, and hobbled across many a finish line. Then, I was introduced to ChiRunning.
ChiRunning has taken my daily run from merely exercise to my moving mediation and connection to my body. It has allowed me to run distances I never thought I could, and recover much more quickly and easily than I ever have.
In the last 15 years of running, I haven’t had a side-lining injury. That’s not to say, I haven’t had my “issues”. However, I learned to listen to my body, and make adjustments as I go ~ and I’d love to teach you to do the same. If you’ve never run, if you’ve tried it and didn’t enjoy it, if you’ve had chronic injuries, if you want to continue to enjoy running, if you want to start an exercise program, if you want to run faster and easier, if you want to run uninjured – I can teach you how with the ChiRunning/Chi Walking techniques.
Running, exercise – movement in general – is a passion of mine, and something I love to share.
Workshops and Private Instruction include a before and after VIDEO GAIT ANALYSIS. By the end of a workshop or session you will understand how to apply the technique immediately to your movement, and be well on the way to enjoying a lifelong program of fitness, health and wellbeing.
