Why Chi Running?

Think running’s not for you? Think again…

Want to learn to run but not sure where to start?

Fed up with injuries constantly putting the brakes on your training?

Want to put the fun back in your running?

A different approach to running

Based on movement principles from t’ai chi, Chi Running helps you move with less effort and a reduced risk of injury.

Focus your mind
Align and relax
Move from your centre
Co-operate with gravity

Chi Running is a mindful approach to moving, and helps to make running more enjoyable, while improving mental focus and body sensing skills.

It teaches you to align and relax your body, creating a stable support base, while letting go of unnecessary tension, minimising wasted energy and reducing the risk of potential injury from overuse.

In Chi Running, you focus on moving from your centre, and co-operating with gravity, shifting more of the workload toward your core muscles and allowing your legs to work less.

Interested in finding out more? Look out for my regular free taster sessions in Taunton and Bristol, or come to my free Chi Run Club in Taunton.

I teach one-day workshops in Bristol, Dorchester, Exeter and Taunton, where you can learn the skills to help you build the foundations for your chi running practice. Groups are small – no more than eight people – to ensure individual attention and advice, and the day includes video observation of your current running form.

For individual or bespoke group coaching, please get in touch to discuss.
