Workshop Details

ChiRunning is a revolutionary approach that addresses the problem of injuries by combining the inner focus of Tai Chi with running. This innovative running technique brings together body alignment and relaxation so you can run with more ease and fluidity than you ever imagined.
Many of us have experienced running as an activity that takes a physical toll with sore muscles, knee injuries, hip pain, or shin splints. As Danny Dreyer, founder of ChiRunning says, "It’s not running that hurts your body … it’s the way you run that does the damage." The ChiRunning method has been successfully taught to thousands of people with profound results.
Classes will include drills and exercises that bring a new level of depth to your exercise routine and transform running from a sport to a mindfulness practice. For those seeking a way to supplement yoga practice with aerobic and weight-bearing exercise, ChiRunning will show you how to bring all of the core strengthening of yoga into both walking and running.
This workshop is designed for all abilities, from total beginners to seasoned veterans.
Please note: Bring running shoes, shorts, sweatpants, and clothing layers that will allow you to adapt to the weather. The class is open to people who have no debilitating injuries that would prevent them from fully participating. Running experience is not necessary as long as you are a walker with an interest in running.
