There are many reasons for choosing a Chi program, the best reason is it positively changes your life!
Running and walking top the list as one of the most convenient and popular sports to keep you fit! Find a good running shoe, throw on a comfortable outfit and you’re out the door to better health!
Going out the door running has never been so easy!
Going out the door is easy if you are holding a good posture aligned throughout your body! But heading out and continually walking or running with poor posture is the number one reason we get uncomfortable and a huge reason for quitting!
Your Walking and Running Posture For ChiRunning
Our walking or running posture changes as we age because we are living tired and sometimes very stressful lives.
You Need To Pay Attention To Your Posture
As your life continues to keep you busy, you need to pay attention to how you are holding your posture. A slightly curved spine, a slump in the shoulders and cave in the chest make it difficult to do anything comfortably! Especially when it comes to your crucial breathing.
Weight not distributed evenly causes injuries to joints and muscles.
Slumping through the shoulders and bending at the waist puts direct pressure on joints at the hip, knees, ankles and feet. If you walk or run with incorrect posture favoring one side of the body, over a period of time troubles come your way and injuries ensue.
ChiRunning starts out with walking and learning the correct postures for walking and running. By being aware and creating a balance in your posture and engaging your body in a harmonious position, you will feel the energy of life flow through you!
This Energy is your Chi!
Tapping into your invisible Chi energy makes movements simplistic, effortless and successful. The balance is there and you feel invigorated during and after the run or walk. Chi energy is like the wind, you can’t see it but you will feel it’s subtle force when using it.
Using Chi energy to move your body is all about putting the effort in, (checking in with yourself on movement learned) at the same time using centered energy (gravity) to move you forward.
Danny Dreyer says it best: When two complementary forces are interacting in a relatively good measure, there is a state of balance and centeredness.
Chi running and walking is engaging your body in a unified way, so you can run that 5K or go for that brisk walk feeling good! The parts of your body that are not meant to be used for big body movement are used properly and the workload is spread to the stronger parts of the body. this just means all parts are doing their rightful job.
