What to Expect
This ChiWalking Basics workshop is a great introduction to the Chi Walking technique. Hazel will guide you through many exercises and drills designed to leave you with a clear sense of what the ChiWalking technique feels like in your body.
We won’t be doing a lot of walking. The focus will be on building a solid base of knowledge that you will carry forward in your walking program. You’ll get lots of personal attention and enjoy a rich learning experience packed with good information to help you walk in balance for the rest of your life.
You’ll learn proper body alignment and movement techniques that will give you a powerful sense of balance and stability, as well as relaxation and spaciousness in your body and mind.

“Wanted to extend a huge thank you for all your Chi Walking training over the last ten weeks, to prepare me and some of the other Fireman’s Fund employees participating in the J.P. Morgan Chase event this Wednesday to be successful. Your personal attention to each of us and the gentle directives to focus on our alignment, stride length and walking techniques were all very much appreciated. Your voice will be in my head.”
