“Chi Running reduces injuries and impact and allows you to run with more ease and greater joy. Run faster and farther with less effort and more fun.”
Chi Running is a revolutionary running technique that reduces pain, injuries and effort while increasing joy, mental clarity and performance. A 2012 University of North Carolina study confirms these benefits. Chi Running combines correct biomechanics, alignment and relaxation for very effective results. Chi Running has been recently featured in a 2013 Runner’s World article. The quickest, easiest and most effective way to learn is from Damian, a certified instructor. His attention to detail and trusted expertise has tremendous results for runners of all levels. The benefits of Chi Running will last your entire life.
The foundation of Chi Running is running technique. Proper alignment and relaxation are the keys to optimal running technique. The two specific benefits of alignment and relaxation are energy efficiency and injury prevention. When we move efficiently we reduce injuries and move with ease. Therefore, we can increase speed and distance with less effort and more joy. And when we reduce impact and increase ease we can move with less pain and enjoy running forever.
Running becomes a playful experience with benefits similar to meditation and yoga. Read how Damian has helped many runners of every level.
