ChiRunning for Women

« Go Back

Nourish the Best of Yourself with Every Run

You deserve a running program that considers your needs. ChiRunning helps you cultivate your unique strengths and supports what is most challenging for women. Based on the premise of Intelligent Movement, you’ll practice finesse over force, skill over brute strength, relaxation rather than over-exertion.

Women’s Bodies, Women’s Running

Since your body is different than a man’s, it’s good to know there are running tips and techniques that serve a woman’s body specifically. For instance, women happen to be ideally suited to run longer distances and a bit more challenged than men to run shorter distances at a very fast pace.

If your fitness goals include maintaining good overall health, managing your weight, reducing stress, or getting a personal best at an event, you can learn how to run in a way that is best suited for you and your body.

The Yin and the Yang of ChiRunning

Yin is considered the feminine principle and Yang the masculine. In the west, most of us are what an acupuncturist would call Yin deficient. We go, go, go with too little rest and recuperation.

In ChiRunning we emphasize Yin energy as the foundation of all movement: receptivity, stability, core strength, flexibility, responsiveness to the moment.

These Yin qualities make running safer, easier and much more enjoyable. Once the Yin foundation is established, adding some Yang output comes naturally and doesn’t injure or deplete your body.

Women Run the World

Women are completing running events in greater numbers than men. And, unfortunately, more women are getting injured too. It doesn’t have to be that way.

Considering women weren’t officially permitted to run the Boston Marathon until 1972, it is amazing what we’ve accomplished.

If you’d like to run your first 5K or get a personal best at a Half Marathon, the most important thing is not to get injured. With that goal firmly established, all your other intentions can flourish.

What others are saying...

After my run, I was back at work in 15 minutes, no pain, nothing hurting at all.  My pulse averaged 127, high of 135. Wow … how cool is that? I then realized – from the GPS on my phone – that my pace was a full 50 seconds per mile faster than I had ever done previously…

I truly am glad I did the workshop with you…and the private lesson.  There’s nothing like one-on-one to get to the heart of things, to get answers, to get such great feedback about my form (Had NO IDEA about my arms/shoulders!!!!), and to feel even more connected to this ChiRunning thing.
