ChiRunning® Essentials

Our ChiRunning® Essentials course offers benefits to all types of runners, from complete beginners to competitive athletes.

What to Expect

The Chi Running Essentials workshop includes several hours of instruction in a single 1/2 day course. Hazel will guide you through many exercises and drills designed to leave you with a clear sense of what the Chi Running 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 are in, have no fear. We will spend time alternating between demonstrations, fun exercises and technique drills … the nature of the day will be relaxed, full and inspiring.

“I just wanted to take a second to thank you for today. You are such a great instructor! I really loved how well the Chi concepts made sense when you had us experience them, and you used really great analogies. Wonderful class, thank you so very much!”
