What is ChiWalking and ChiRunning?

The ChiWalking and ChiRunning technique are revolutionary and were created by Danny Dryer, an ultra marathoner, with the assistance of his wife Katherine Dreyer and master Tai Chi Instructor. The technique uses the physical and mental focuses of Tai Chi along with walking and running to create a new type of movement that allow the body to be more energy efficient with far less chance of injury. The technique engages the body’s core instead of muscle usage to reduce impact to the body and potential for injury. The Chi technique further enhances the benefits of exercising using walking and running, while strengthening core muscles, moving the body forward with greater energy efficiency and reducing the chances of injury to the body.  The end result is a fun way to workout, which can be done by persons of any age or fitness level. 

Research supports that a regular walking and/or running program can lower blood pressure, build stronger bones, assist in weight loss, reduce stress, improve sleep and boost our outlook on life. Additionally, a regular program can assist in preventing and controlling major diseases such as diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease. However, walking with bad posture or using poor walking technique skills can cause the body more injury and make walking a chore rather than the FUN activity it was designed to be. ChiWalking and ChiRunning brings all the benefits of traditional walking and running but is specifically designed to reduce injuries and move you forward with more energy efficiency.
