ChiRunning offers a fresh solution to common running injuries and ailments experienced by 60-70% of runners each year. This technique combines the ancient wisdom of T’ai Chi with modern physics to help runners practice proper biomechanics, allowing them to run farther and faster with less effort while reducing the risk of injury. Runners of all ages and levels are welcome to attend the Level I workshops, from beginners to seasoned marathoners to competitive athletes. Level II workshops are best for those who have attended a Level I workshop.

The ChiRunning program makes running possible for those who have stopped running because of injury, who are intimidated by potential injury, who want a competitive edge, or for those who seek a spiritual component in their fitness program. Since 1999, the ChiRunning technique has made running safer, easier, and more enjoyable for hundreds of thousands of runners.

"I just want to say ‘Thank You!’ This weekend I experienced for the first time the feeling of being able to run forever. Running was actually effortless, fun, and the big plus was no knee pain,” says workshop attendee, Ruth Michael.
