'Did my longest run ever without stopping yesterday ;just over 12miles in a steady 85mins. Had a 'moment' for about 10-15mins at 7 miles ish of pure EASY running, like it was a dream and my legs were just not part of me, Thanks again for helping me overcome an injury that meant I could never run for more than 30mins, not too long ago.' Sam, ex sub 2min 800m runner
"I have been leaving my garmin at home and trying to run to how I feel, only time will tell if I can make improvements when racing using chi running, but for now I don't really care, I am remembering why I started to run in the first place- just because I can and for the sheer joy of it!"
"Thank you so much for such an awesome, inspiring weekend! I must admit, I was absolutely blown away by how simple the principles of Chi Running are and how much sense they made. Running suddenly feels more natural and I can't wait to get out and practise!"
"Just been to my first Chi Running day. It's quite magical, now just need to practice. I can also pleat my toes. Great inspirational day both running and yoga. Would recommend u give it a try" March 2015, Dunbar and North Berwick

What is Chi Running?
ChiRunning combines the inner focus and the ideas and principles behind T'ai Chi with the power and energy of running to create a revolutionary running form and philosophy that takes the pounding, pain, and potential damage out of the sport of running. ChiRunning increases mental clarity and focus, enhances the joy of running, and turns running into a safe and effective lifelong program for health, fitness, and well-being.
What is the focus of Chi Running?
Chi Running helps reduce or eliminate injury and pain such as: knee pain, hip pain, IT Band Syndrome (ITB), hamstring pulls, Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, soreness and fatigue. Conditioning your mind is just as important as conditioning your body.
Who can benefit from Chi Running?
Chi Running has helped many people, from beginners to cross country runners to triathletes. Whether you are just beginning a running program or training for a marathon, race, triathlon, or general all round fitness the Chi Running approach is one that builds a healthy body, instead of breaking it down from misuse or overuse.
