What is ChiRunning?
ChiRunning is an approach to running that takes the pain and pounding out of running in favor of a relaxed, smooth and efficient form. It draws from the ancient wisdom of T’ai Chi and applies some basic laws of physics. It is moving how we were designed to move. When describing an aspect of the technique, time and time again, students say “oh, that makes total sense”. Students learn to run in a way that is powerful but fluid. The Chi Running technique gives you a feeling a running barefoot without ditching your shoes. Many Chi Runners enjoy wearing minimal shoes
