Chi Running®
Chi Running combines the inner focus and flow of T’ai Chi with the power and energy of running to produce a more energy-efficient running form. Chi Running reduces impact and enables you to run injury-free, faster, and longer with much less effort, and more enjoyment.

ChiWalking®
Chi Walking focuses on moving from your center—your core—using proper body alignment and movement techniques that gives you a powerful sense of balance and stability, as well as relaxation and spaciousness in your mind and body. Chi Walking turns walking into a daily mindful exercise routine that promotes health in your mind and body, while reducing your chances of incurring injuries.
