There’s nothing magical or mysterious about Chi Running, nor is it skipping around the park waving josticks! It is a simple common-sense approach to moving forward in an efficient way, without over-stressing the muscles and joints with the intention of improved performance and ultimate enjoyment.
The emphasis will be on improving form, fitness and general health and well-being. You’ll appreciate that running can be an integral part of your life rather than just an ‘exercise’ that needs to be endured. The latter more than likely leads to over-training, injury and dis-heartenment.
This workshop is suitable for beginners and experienced runners alike.
These workshops are limited to a small group of 8 to ensure plenty of individual attention.
