Hi, I’m a family doctor in Santa Rosa and have recently discovered your amazing running program. I’m recommending your materials to my running patients. I would also like to get more information on ChiWalking to learn and to pass on.
Dear ChiRunning/ChiLiving team, I recently took a private class with Steve Mackel who, in my humble opinion, has to be one of your best Instructors. I wanted you to know how much I enjoyed my ChiRunning class with Steve. As with learning something new, I was a little bit nervous at first but his calm […]
The best thing about ChiRunning is that it makes so much sense! The principle of working with your core strength is very powerful and very natural. This program totally revolutionized the way I run!
I have been competitively and recreationally running for 40 years. As was so well described in the ChiRunning book, I have been through the injury, strengthening, improvement, re-injury cycle so many times that I can’t count. Anyway, I have digested the book and DVD which I bought 2 weeks ago. It is amazing, but I […]
Hi, just want to let you know that this one of the best books I have ever read. It is very informative and very easy to follow. This book has made my running more enjoyable and pain free. I whish I would have read this book a long time ago. As I continue to practice […]

ChiRunning is simply amazing. I thought I was naturally a midfoot striker, but through Body Sensing I have learned that I often ran on the outside edges of my feet, and also tensed up my lower legs and ankles. Predictably, I suffered from calf muscle strains and ankle pain, which often sidelined me for weeks […]
I have been a marathoner and ChiRunning nerd for a few years now and just ran my first triathlon at IM Oceanside 70.3. During the half marathon I was in a fast comfortable stride and having a great time while everyone around me suffered. Even some of the spectators commented on how happy I was! […]
Dear Danny and Katherine, Just finished the ChiRunning 5-day Workshop at the Omega Center; it was life changing. The very next day on my morning run — 1. I shaved over 1-1/2 minutes off of my first mile without even trying (was concentrating on form NOT speed). 2. I flew down hills that I used […]
