Is This Workshop for Me?

Yes! ChiWalking is beneficial for everyone, even those recovering from or managing illness or injury. The ChiWalking principles are covered in the first half of the running workshop. There will be no running during this time, but you will practice plenty of walking exercises & drills.

If you’re inspired to try ChiRunning after experiencing how easy ChiWalking can be, you can choose to join the walk-run group and stay for the afternoon session for an additional $100.

You’ll Learn How To:

• Maximize the power of your core to move forward.  Most walking injuries occur from the waist down. When we initiate movement from our core, the body’s largest muscle group, we don’t need to use our legs for propulsion. This greatly reduces impact, pain, and risk of injury. A strong core also improves posture, balance, and stability.

• Unite your Upper Body and Lower Body. The Chi techniques are all about keeping your energy flowing so you can move efficiently. You’ll learn how to optimize your movement to keep the workload balanced between your Upper Body and Lower Body.

• Get the results you want with fitness walking. With good body mechanics and relaxation techniques, you’ll improve your endurance and gain speed while preventing fatigue. You’ll be able to walk farther and faster with less effort so you can make your fitness goals a reality.

• Plenty of Practice. You’ll practice walking drills and exercises designed to help you instill the technique in your body.

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

What You Need To Bring:

• To maximize your learning experience, we recommend reading the ChiWalking book and/or watching the ChiWalking DVD prior to your workshop.
• Please bring your own lunch and water.
• Wear athletic shoes, sunscreen, and weather appropriate clothing.
