ChiRunning Workshops November 23 at CMC/DHK

November 12, 2013
Keene, NH

Two unique workshops about ChiRunning®, a technique to run easier and injury-free, will be offered at Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene on Saturday, November 23 from 9 am to 12:30 pm and from 1 to 4 pm.

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 demonstrations, fun exercises and technique drills designed for all types of walkers and runners - the nature of the sessions will be relaxed, full, and inspiring.

The Saturday morning session will include: introduction of the ChiRunning® form, keys to effortless and injury-free running, personal check-in tricks and tools, core muscle drills and exercise and more. The afternoon half-day session is a Level II workshop and will cover improving your running efficiency in 3 gears, cadence and metronome use, breathing practices, and a video analysis of participants to augment learning. 

Instruction will be led both indoors, in North Conference Rooms 1 & 2, and outdoors, rain or shine. Participants are encouraged to dress in layers appropriate to the day’s weather. Cost for each half day workshop is $145 per person. Learn more and register online today for the morning session or the afternoon session.
