In this workshop you will learn the basic components of the ChiWalking technique. You will be guided through many exercises and drills designed to leave you with a clear sense of what the ChiWalking technique feels like in your body. You will not be doing lots of walking (contrary to what you might imagine), so no matter what condition you’re in, have no fear. The day will alternate between direct instruction, demonstrations, fun exercises and technique drills… My goal is to keep it relaxed, engaging, personalized and inspiring.

Cancellation Policy for Sarah’s ChiRunning, ChiWalking or ChiRun-Walk Clinics:
Full Cancellation: You will receive a refund of your registration payment minus a $25 processing fee.
Deferment: You will be able to reschedule to a future workshop with Sarah Richardson within one year with no penalty. If you do not attend within one year, you forfeit your registration fee.
NOTE: In the past, failure to cancel prior to 48 hours before the start of the appointment time resulted in a charge of your full fee. Exceptions to this have always been emergencies, illness, or difficult weather.
Amid the ongoing uncertainty of COVID-19, I have modified my cancellation policy to offer greater flexibility to all clients. If you need to reschedule for whatever reason, and especially if you are not feeling well, I understand and request for you to please contact me as soon as possible to reschedule.
