Workshop Description
In this workshop you will learn the basic components of the Chi Running technique and how to implement it in your body.

We will be guiding you through many exercises and drills designed to leave you with a clear sense of what the Chi Running technique feels like in your body. We will not be doing lots of running (contrary to what you might imagine), so no matter what condition you’re in, have no fear. We will spend the day alternating between demonstrations, fun exercises and technique drills… the nature of the day will be relaxed, full, and inspiring.

What others are saying...

Nailed My Form.

I was so excited to find ChiRunning. Getting back into running as an adult was a little scary and I didn’t know if I was doing it quite right. I did not have the time for pain, injuries or being out of commission, yet wanted to get back into shape… safely.  Sarah has helped me nail my form before injuries could crop up and I haven’t looked back. She taught how to move my body with proper form and how to listen to my body.  I’m so glad that I can run with my friends and have been able to safely compete in races I never thought I could do!   ~Andrea

Check. Check.

Being a busy working mom, I wanted an activity I could do on the fly and I chose running. But I hadn’t ever been a runner before. ChiRunning was the perfect place to start. Sarah helped me stay safe and sound while I trained for my first race ever, which was a half-marathon! As a teacher, she was extremely patient and made it so understandable and I could actually FEEL if I was doing it right or wrong. I’m so glad that I took the time to learn my form, it made all the the difference in the world.   ~Maureen
