Program Details

For runners of all abilities.

Running is one of the oldest and most natural of human activities, yet many of us experience it as an activity that causes injuries. 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.”

Come learn a revolutionary running technique that combines the inner focus of tai chi with running. By blending body alignment with relaxation, you learn to run with ease and fluidity, transforming running from a sport to a mindful practice. Designed for all abilities, from total beginners to seasoned runners, this program makes the ChiRunning experience fun and easy to grasp. No matter how you’re running now, you’ll be running with much less effort when you leave the workshop.

This Level 2 introduction takes your workouts to the next level, helping you to master pelvic rotation, do a speed workout, work more efficiently on hills, and focus on cadence.

Recommended reading and viewing Danny Dreyer, ChiRunning: A Revolutionary Approach to Effortless, Injury-Free Running (Fireside), book and DVD.

Note Come dressed to run. This class is not appropriate for anyone with debilitating injuries.
