Chi Coaching


ChiWalking and ChiRunning 

ChiRunning and ChiWalking are running and walking techniques developed many years ago by ultra-marathoner Danny Dreyer and his wife Katherine Dreyer. The technique uses Tai Chi focuses to help move the body forward without injury and with greater energy efficiency. What this means to us is that when the technique is practices we can take a sports like running, which is a tremendous injury prone sport, and now practice it without fear of injury and have more energy to enjoy it longer. Fitness walking practices also like power walking, additionally can cause the body injury and drain you of energy. 

The ChiCoaching technique is designed to give you a fitness practice that allows you to progress your fitness and exercise practice to what ever level of fitness you choose. Once you learn the technique of ChiWalking, you can challenge yourself by increasing your distance and speed, through a Chi concept called gradual progress.

Additionally, you can move directly from ChiWalking to ChiRunning  with a simple lean. The technique allows you to easily transition from ChiWalking to ChiRunning or you can simply continue to challenge yourself through ChiWalking. Both allow you to complete your fitness goals at any age or beginning fitness level.
