ChiRunning and ChiWalking combine the mind-body principles of T’ai Chi with running and walking for an energized, balanced body and a clear, focused mind. Your running or walking become a meditative practice as well as a great way to get and stay healthy. You’ll enjoy moving the way you were designed to move – naturally, smoothly and without stress or strain to your muscles and joints.
In this retreat we’ll all be together to learn the foundational practices of ChiRunning and ChiWalking and then split into walking or running groups. Walkers do not have to run during this workshop but can try running if you want to! Runners can join the walking group at any time. You’ll have fluid options to learn these life-enhancing skills. We will also discuss the option of Chi Walk-Run, a gentle way to build a safe and sustainable walk-run practice.
This workshop is for all levels of fitness, beginners to long-distance runners or walkers. It is not recommended if you have any long-term difficulties walking, such as needing a cane or have other walking or running disabilities. Mild injuries are fine as long you can stand and walk or run. Injury prevention is our first premise of ChiRunning and ChiWalking so minor knee, hip or back pain should not be a deterrent to joining the workshop.
IMPORTANT: The terrain of Well Being Retreat is mostly dirt and gravel roads and trails. Good shoes are a must. We will practice hill techniques, but running and walking mostly on gentle hills and flat but graveled terrain. Every aspect of the workshop is optional.
The retreat will begin with check-in Thursday, May 4, 2023 between 4:00 pm and 5:30 pm. Dinner will be served at 6:00 pm Thursday evening. All meals, snacks, teas and coffee will be served through the event. The retreat will end after lunch on Sunday, May 7, 2023.
