What to Expect
A fun and informative session that your running will love. The level I workshop lasts four hours and is for those new to Chi Running. We focus on technique with little running. It is interactive and the instructors will demonstrate the technique. You follow and the instructors will review and correct. Very little time is spent on theory. The complete ChiRunning technique is covered, but the focus is on the basics:
• Posture – the foundation of both good health and good running.
• Lean – utilizing the pull of gravity for propulsion.
• Lower Body– legs are completely relaxed except for a knee bend and heel lift.
• Upper Body – in ChiRunning the upper body is as important as the lower body.
The workshop also covers Cadence, Stride Length, Hill Running techniques and Drills. You do not need to take notes as handouts will be provided covering what you have learned.
