The ChiRunning technique applies principles from Tai Chi to distance running promoting energy efficiency and injury prevention. How you run dictates how stress goes through your body while running. Efficient running technique affords less stress on your body and requires less effort. Developing efficient running technique is an essential component to restore or sustain your running practice. Efficient ChiRunning Technique can be learned through focused practice.
A ChiRunning Clinic takes you through 3 steps to start developing the skill necessary for efficient pain-free running:
Understand the efficiency of ChiRunning
Feel the efficiency of ChiRunning in your own body
Guided Practice of ChiRunning
Introduction to ChiRunning
Moving from your Dantien
Stride Length/Using Your Gears
Personal Check-in: Your top focuses to work on
Intro to ChiRunning Workshop consists of discussion, demonstration, drills and a small amount of running making it perfect for individuals of all conditioning and experience levels interested in efficient running.

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.
Post 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.
