ChiWalk/ChiRun Free Clinic: Lesson #1
In each clinic, I will introduce the ChiWalking/ChiRunning form. Walking and running are one of the best ways to lose weight and stay fit.
This event is being hosted by Sports Medicine Acupuncturist, Jody Murray from Acupuncture Therapy at AZSDS, who will be on hand to answer your sports medicine questions. Jody will be available after the workshop to quickly evaluate any injuries you may currently have.
Most people walk and run by using the muscles in their legs. As a result, people lead with their legs and pull themselves forward (most walking and running injuries are mainly due to improper use of leg muscles!)
ChiRunning/ChiWalking teaches you to use your core muscles rather than your leg muscles, allowing your upper body to lead your lower body. This forward movement engages the pull of gravity, which then becomes your ally. This revolutionary method uses the same principles of T’ai Chi by working with core muscles, body alignment and body/mind integration resulting in a proven pain-free, energy efficient way to walk and run.
This, in turn, creates a more focused and enjoyable workout experience for lifelong health and energy.
It’s great for all fitness levels! If you are a beginner, you will learn the right technique before doing it incorrectly. For experienced walkers or runners, find out how you can take your performance to the next level. If you are injured, find out what you are doing incorrectly so you can get back to the sport you love.
