Building the Foundations: One-day Workshops

 

Building the Foundations Chi Running workshop

I can’t recommend this highly enough. Hannah is an excellent teacher and I’ve transferred all the things I learnt into my walking and standing too. Consequently I have better posture, less Achilles pain and back pain. On top of all those benefits I am starting to get the feeling of effortless running (that’s when I know I’m getting it right). – KT, Taunton

Running doesn’t have to be hard. And it doesn’t have to hurt.

Whether you’re new to Chi Running or are looking to improve, learn how to run more efficiently, more mindfully and with less risk of injury in a friendly and inspiring atmosphere.

A one day workshop will build the foundations of your Chi Running technique and develop your skills through practical exercises, drills and visualisations.

You’ll learn:

* Why posture is the single most important factor in good running form, and how to align your body
* How to reduce impact by picking up your feet
* Engaging your lean to take the load off your legs
* Using your upper body to share the workload
* How to increase speed without increasing effort
* The role of cadence in fluid and efficient running

Includes individual video observation of your current running form to give you a clear sense of the key areas where you can improve efficiency and reduce impact on the body.

You’ll learn how to develop your running skill and create a life-long programme for health and fitness.

Suitable for all levels of runner and all levels of fitness, from complete beginner to experienced ultramarathoner

Workshops are kept to a maximum of 10 so each student gets individual attention and guidance.

FAQs

Do I need to be able to run far to take part in a workshop?

Not at all. The day includes some short practice runs in the afternoon, mostly at an easy pace. No 10 milers – promise!

Who are the workshops suitable for?

Everyone – seriously! I get a real mix of runners at my classes, from those who’ve only just started running, to marathoners who have been running for decades. From triathletes who’d like to enjoy the running bit a little more, to those coming back to training after injury. From twenty-somethings to sixty-somethings and beyond.

Can I take part if I’m injured?

If you’re suffering from an injury, please check with your GP or physio that it’s safe for you to participate before booking.

I’ve booked already and now I’m injured. Can I transfer to a different date?

Yes – just let me know that you won’t be able to make it and you can transfer your booking to another session
