• Introduction to the Chi Walking method
• Injury-prevention techniques
• Keys to reducing effort by focusing on efficiency
• Core muscle drills and exercises
• Upper body and lower body usage
• Personal check-in tricks and tools – Body scanning, awareness and practice focuses

Come and enjoy a rich learning experience packed with good information to help you walk in balance for the rest of your life.
