ChiRunning & ChiWalking with Master Instructor Ed Malley

In brief…ChiRunning teaches runners to move with more energy efficiency and fewer injuries.

It does this by combining the central movement principles of T’ai Chi with the sport of running to create a running form that shifts a great deal of the workload toward your core, allowing your legs to work less. This leads to increased efficiency and a significant reduction in injuries.

Running doesn’t need to be hard or difficult on your body. The problem isn’t running, it’s the way you run. So take your running to places it’s never been before.

With easy-to-learn techniques, fun drills and exercises, the ChiRunning workshop will leave you with a clear sense of what Chi Running feels like in your body, and will give you the confidence and know-how to run as often, as far, and as fast as you’d like…for your entire life!

"Today I did my first Chi long run and it felt great! For most of the run I felt like I could keep going forever. When I reached the end, my muscles and joints felt quite unfatigued. It was really enjoyable. Thanks again for showing us the light."

"Thanks for the pictures and thanks for the workshop. Was fun, inspirational and very instructive. I actually went for a 10k run at Almaden Quicksilver Park just after the workshop and tried to work on the different things. Came out from the run feeling very refreshed and not sore at all. Actually shaved 3 min from the time I got at the same place last week even though experiencing the run as less strenuous. Thanks for sending the videos and the additional pointers. Once again, I feel it (was) very helpful and informative."

"I am so happy to Chi running now... I feel running lighter and smoother. I am enjoying running much more than before. I would definitely love to come to your level II class to learn more."
