In this workshop you will learn the basic ingredients of the ChiRunning® Technique, all packed in a full day. I will be guiding you through many exercises and drills designed to leave you with a clear sense of what the ChiRunning technique feels like in your body. We will not be doing lots of running (contrary to what you might imagine), so no matter what condition you’re in, have no fear. We will spend the day alternating between demonstrations, fun exercises, and technique drills…the nature of the day will be relaxed, fun, and inspiring.
You can look forward to being introduced to the ChiRunning Form and learning about:
• The keys to effortless, injury-free running
• The physics of running and gravity’s role
• ChiRunning vs Power running
• Injury prevention techniques
• Lower and upper body usage and the role of legs and arms
• Gears and speed management
• Personal check-in tools & techniques
• Posture, forward fall, ankle lift and arm swing
• Pelvic rotation
• Hills (gradual & steep; uphill and downhill)
• Pre-run looseners
There will be an approximate 45-minute lunch break. Please bring your own lunch, snacks and drinks. Contact Instructor Michael Weintraub at Mike@TriChi.run for any questions.
