Event details and schedule

In this workshop you will learn the basic ingredients of the ChiRunning® Technique. Participants may choose to join for the first  half of the day only, or stay for both the first and second halves of the day. Those who have attended a previous workshop may sign up for the second half of the day only, should they wish to do so.

The ChiRunning workshop will be broken into two differnt sessions. The Instructor 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, full and inspiring.

The first half of the workshop will include the following focuses:

  • The Keys to Effortless, Injury-free Running
  • The Physics of Running: Run without Using Your Legs
  • Chi Running versus Power Running
  • Introduction to the Chi Running Form
  • Posture, Lean, Lift
  • Personal Check-in Tricks and Tools
  • Learning to Use Your Gears
  • Core Muscle Drills and Exercise

Lunch: Bring a lunch and join us for an hour of informal questions & answers

The second half of the workshop will include the following focuses:

  • Pre-run Body Looseners, Post-run Stretches
  • Run Various Speeds While Conserving Energy
  • Keeping a consistent cadence
  • Hills
