I 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. You will learn: Posture, Foot Placement, Lean, Arm Swing, Knee Bending, Stride Length, Cadence and more. You will also be videotaped at the beginning of the workshop. 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. This workshop is appropriate for everyone, from the beginner to the elite!
