Millions of runners quit or avoid running because of the fear of injury, or long-term damage. Yet, there have been few fresh ideas or new approaches to running and injury prevention in the last thirty years.

The ChiRunning program offers a real solution to the high rate of injury that plagues the sport of running. The ChiRunning technique increases mental clarity and focus by engaging your mind. At the same time it teaches you how to deeply relax your body so that you can run freely and effortlessly for the rest of your life.

Scientific studies are showing that good biomechanics can prevent running injuries. "Running does not hurt your body, it's the way you run," says Dreyer. There are countless books, courses, and classes on how to improve golf swings, tennis games, and even cycling technique, but very few teaching how to run properly. The ChiRunning program fills this void by teaching people bio-mechanically efficient running form, drawing from the laws of physics and the wealth of powerful movement principles found in T'ai Chi, yoga and Pilates: engaging your core muscles, using proper body alignment, and taking advantage of the pull of gravity.

ChiRunning has been teaching good running form to all levels of runners, from beginners to elites, since 1999, and has helped countless runners all over the world improve their running technique, reduce their chances of injury and achieve their personal goals. The ChiRunning program has been embraced by athletes who have stopped running due to injury, as well as those who want to have a competitive edge. ChiRunning is easy to learn and most runners say they feel its positive effects almost immediately. More information about ChiRunning can be found at: www.chirunning.com.
