Years ago, when I began running races, I “ran through the pain”. I lost countless toenails, pushed through my knee pain, stuffed my feet into shoes, and hobbled across many a finish line. Then, I was introduced to ChiRunning.
ChiRunning has taken my daily run from merely exercise to my moving mediation and connection to my body. It has allowed me to run distances I never thought I could, and recover much more quickly and easily than I ever have.
In the last 15 years of running, I haven’t had a side-lining injury. That’s not to say, I haven’t had my “issues”. However, I learned to listen to my body, and make adjustments as I go ~ and I’d love to teach you to do the same. If you’ve never run, if you’ve tried it and didn’t enjoy it, if you’ve had chronic injuries, if you want to continue to enjoy running, if you want to start an exercise program, if you want to run faster and easier, if you want to run uninjured – I can teach you how with the ChiRunning/Chi Walking techniques.
Running, exercise – movement in general – is a passion of mine, and something I love to share.
Workshops and Private Instruction include a before and after VIDEO GAIT ANALYSIS. By the end of a workshop or session you will understand how to apply the technique immediately to your movement, and be well on the way to enjoying a lifelong program of fitness, health and wellbeing.
Having just moved to Seattle, I was feeling unusual aches/pains while running up and down some of the steep hills in the area. These aches were indicative of something wrong with my running technique and so I decided to contact Beth to show me the ways of Chi running. Long story short, I learned more from one run with Beth than from a year’s worth of Runner’s World and countless hours watching youtube videos of people demonstrating Chi running techniques. Beth’s years of experience really showed through not just in her knowledge of anything to do with running but in the way she’s able to transfer that knowledge.
I have to say I’m very impressed. First, the training was great this morning and you did an excellent job of breaking down the concepts in a way that will allow me to work on them individually and then combine those into a healthier running style. I left there pretty damn pleased with my decision to meet with you. But taking the time to put together such thorough and thoughtful follow-up emails, that really takes it over the top. I really appreciate the additional advice and encouragement. Really nice. Thanks so much for doing this.
When I went to the clinic yesterday, I wasn’t feeling too well and was a little nervous since I thought it might be triggered by running. When I left, I felt better than I had for a week, this morning still feel great. Thought I would need to give up running, and now I know it’s obviously not the problem. It could be from drinking wine which is MUCH easier to give up than running. Thank god I went yesterday, had a great time, learned a lot, and felt I was running stronger than I had in years.
I went to Beth’s clinic expecting to improve my running form but came away with so much more. Little did I know but my sitting, standing, walking, and breathing form also had potential for improvement 🙂 The added benefit I didn’t expect is that focusing on my form has enabled me to become more present and less distracted in pretty much everything else I do.
