Our mission is twofold: to help you run as efficiently and injury-free as possible. These two skills will make your running a joyful and successful practice and are based on the movement principles of T’ai Chi.
Running doesn’t need to be difficult or hard on the body. The problem isn’t running, it’s the way you run.
ChiRunning is based on a centuries-old principle from T’ai Chi: shift your workload to the core muscles. Your efficiency comes from allowing gravity to assist your propulsion, taking the workload off your legs and letting you run lightly and swiftly like you did as a youngster.
Focus your mind. Strengthen your core. Run like the wind. Learn to reduce and prevent injuries, while reducing recovery time, with our T’ai Chi-based technique.
If you want to run your first 5K or get a personal best at a marathon, the best place to begin is with good running technique. Distance, conditioning and speed then come with ease.
