For beginners and competitors and practiced by thousands of runners, ChiRunning combines modern physics with the ancient wisdom of Tai Chi to create a running form that is easily learned and makes running more effortless and enjoyable. Level I and Level II ChiRunning clinics are available.

The Level I clinic will cover (1) Introduction to ChiRunning and its benefits to triathletes, (2) Injury prevention and energy efficiency, (3) Cooperating with the force of gravity and the force of the road, (4) ChiRunning form. This class will be limited to 25 people.

The Level II clinic is designed for people that have already participated in a Level I clinic and want to take ChiRunning to the next level. The Level II clinic will include (1) a review of proper ChiRunning posture, (2) cooperating with the force of gravity and the force of the road, (3) pelvic rotation/use of your oblique muscle to run more efficiently and faster (4) hill running and (5) video analysis before and after clinic. This class will be limited to 20 people.
