Workshop Description

You will get lots of personal attention and enjoy a rich learning experience packed with good information to help you run with great efficiency and reduce or even eliminate injuries for the rest of your life.

In this Workshop, you will learn the essential skills for your ChiRunning Technique. I will be guiding you through many exercises and drills designed to leave you with a clear sense of what the ChiRunning 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 are in, have no fear. We will spend time alternating between demonstrations, fun exercises and technique drills … the nature of the day will be relaxed, fun and inspiring.

This workshop includes a VIDEO GAIT ANALYSIS at the beginning and conclusion of the workshop. Handouts and Ed’s detailed analysis by email are also included.

What you’ll get:

  • The Keys to Efficient, Injury-Eliminating Running
  • The Physics of Running: Run without Using Your Legs
  • ChiRunning versus Power Running
  • Introduction to the ChiRunning Form
  • Injury Prevention Techniques
  • Personal Check-in Tricks and Tools
  • Core Muscle Drills and Exercises
  • Pre-run Body Looseners, Post-run Stretches
  • Innovative Technique Drills
  • How to Conserve Energy at Any Speed

What others are saying...

Thanks for the pictures and thanks for the workshop. Was fun, inspirational and very instructive. (After the workshop) I actually went for a 10k run…Came out feeling very refreshed and not sore at all.

Ed’s training helped me successfully start running again after 25 years. His chi training is superb and his passion for nature and people is contagious.

Running pain free for a 55 year old guy with 4 knee surgeries (not running related) is a miracle.

Today I did my first Chi long run (a 10-miler) and it felt great! For most of the run I felt like I could keep going forever. When I reached the end, my muscles and joints weren’t fatigued. It was really enjoyable. Thanks again for showing us the light.

If you cancel more than 72 hours in advance of the start of the workshop, you’ll get a full refund. Under 72 hours, email me or call…Generally, if I can fill your slot, then a full refund; if not, I’ll refund half. But email or call. Or reschedule.
