ChiRunning Workshops April 12th & 13th at CMC/DHK

February 27, 2014
Keene, NH

Three unique workshops about ChiRunning®, a technique to run easier and injury-free, will be offered at Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene. There will be a full day session Saturday April 12th, 9am to 4pm and two half-day sessions on Sunday April 13th, 9am to 12:30pm (Level I) and 1pm to 4 pm (Level II).  For Level II participants, it is strongly recommended that they take the Chi Running Level I workshop prior to registering.

Led by Vince Vaccaro, a Master ChiRunning® and ChiWalking® Coach, the courses will focus on learning basic components of the ChiRunning® technique that will be able to be carried forward in personal running programs. Vince will guide participants through many exercises and drills designed to leave you with a clear sense of what the Chi Running technique feels like in your body. There will not be lots of running (contrary to what you might imagine), so no matter what condition you're in, have no fear. The day will be spent alternating between demonstrations, fun exercises and technique drills - the nature of the day will be relaxed, full, and inspiring. 

Instruction will be led both indoors and outdoors, rain or shine. Saturday’s workshop will be held in Auditorium A and B and Sunday’s workshops will be held in the North Conference Rooms 1 and 2.  Participants are encouraged to dress in layers appropriate to the day’s weather. Cost for Saturday’s full day workshop is $225 per person and Sunday’s half day workshops are $145 each.
