Join ChiRunning & ChiWalking founders Katherine and Danny Dreyer for a 3-day weekend at the beautiful Well-Being Retreat Center!
ChiRunning and ChiWalking combine the ancient 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 will become a meditative, mindful practice as well as a great way to get and stay healthy. You’ll enjoy moving the way humans are meant 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 ChiLiving then split into walking or running groups. Walkers do not have to run during this workshop, and 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, the perfect way to gently build a safe and sustainable running practice.
Throughout the weekend Katherine and Danny will also teach you how to bring ChiLiving practices into your everyday life.
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, gravel terrain. Every aspect of the workshop is optional.
The retreat will begin with check-in Thursday, June 27, 2024 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 with lunch on Sunday, June 30, 2024.
