Our Objective

To bring injury free and energy efficient running and walking to all, from the serious runner to those contemplating a walking programme.

Our Technique - ChiRunning ChiWalking

We teach and practice the Chi Running/Walking techniques developed by Danny Dreyer.

The techniques take the principles of Tai Chi the Chinese martial art and apply them to the activities of running and walking with the objectives of injury free and energy efficient running and walking.

For years Hyongok ran regularly, but suffered from discomfort during and after running as well as injuries, Danny's book ChiRunning changed that, by applying the technique described in the book the discomfort and injuries were eliminated and running became a real joy. We would like to share the joy with you.

We were both trained by Danny and Master Instructor Chris Griffin, in addition we continue to study with them twice a year.
