During the 2 hours, you will be guided through several exercises and drills designed to leave you with a good sense of what the Chi Running technique feels like in your body. The goal is to learn to move as efficiently as possible. You’ll learn how to make running easier by using your legs less and using gravity and your core muscles more (less impact on the ground and less energy usage means better recovery time and/or going faster and/or longer with less effort).

You will learn about running posture, how and where your feet should land, how your arms should swing and cadence.

You will be videotaped at the end of the workshop. Within 3 days of class, I will send you the video recording along with my voice over comments.  You will get specific feedback on how well you’ve assimilated the new information along with tips on how to keep improving.

This workshop is appropriate for everyone, from the beginner to the elite!

This investment will out weigh the hassle/money/time off that you would deal with a running injury! Prevention vs. Treatment!


Please contact me if you have any questions regarding the workshop.

What others are saying...

What was your favorite part of the workshop and why?

Seeing the video of how bad my form was, this helped me reflect to a number of past problems and understand why they occurred. ~Stephen C

My favorite part (among many) was when you ran with us and was able to identify what I was doing wrong and how to address it. I referred back to that suggestion the next day and it worked! ~ Terry M

My favorite part is always Lisa’s energy. She has such a positive energy and is very passionate about teaching Chi Running and it really comes across in the class. Also running is always a work in progress, there is always something you can do to run better. Chi Running and Lisa’s classes are an awesome way to see how to improve your running. ~ Charles J

Going outside and practicing after each lesson. I like that Lisa had us practice the chi running way and then compare to our old way during the same trip. I could really feel the difference! ~ Karla H

The video evaluation. I thought I was applying a midfoot landing before I came to the workshop and quickly found out I wasn’t. ~ Missy F

I have recommended the workshops to several friends. The ChiRunning Essentials class costs as much as a new pair of running shoes and you will get a lot more out of the class. I started running in my last 40’s and realized, after I got hurt, that I should have worked on my running form. The classes are a great way to evaluate and improve your form. If I had taken the class before I hurt my knee, I think the injury would not have happened. ~ Charles J

Lisa is very thorough. She goes through each aspect of your form and encourages you for the ones you are doing correctly and gives you helpful things to remember for the ones that need work. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or more advanced, she will always encourage you with great enthusiasm. ~ Karla H
