More than just a running technique.

ChiRunning 

ChiRunning is more than just a running technique. Based on ancient movement principles of Tai Chi, it aims to reduce the risk of injury, improve energy efficiency and bring back the sense of joy to your training. 

Build the foundations of great running form

If you’re struggling with your running or have lost motivation, ChiRunning will help you combine mental focus, good technique and understand how to approach your training.

Improve your running technique, become more efficient in your movement, reduce your risk of injury and enjoy your practice!

In this workshop, you’ll learn the main elements of ChiRunning through a series of fun exercises, drills, visualisations and practice.

You’ll work on:

  • postural alignment, relaxation and balance
  • smooth transition from walk to run
    the importance of the upper body and arm swing
  • optimal cadence (strides per minute)
    increased speed through relaxation
  • mental focus and body awareness

You’ll learn how to develop your running skill and create a life-long programme for fitness, health and general well-being.

Suitable for any age, fitness level and runners of all abilities from complete beginners to seasoned marathoners and triathletes.

1-day workshops include individual video observation.

“You turned every exercise into a learning experience that was fun to do. You’re an excellent coach: relaxed, patient, blending sharp observation with empathy.”

ChiRunning is designed for all ages, abilities and fitness levels. Your coach, Gray Caws is a Master Instructor and director of ChiRunning UK & Ireland. Gray works closely with founder Danny Dreyer and has taught alongside him on a number of occasions.

"Thanks again for your very useful tips, your great insights, and your enthusiasm yesterday. I think I was lucky to have you as an instructor. You turned every exercise into a learning experience that was fun to do. You're an excellent coach: relaxed, patient, blending sharp observation with empathy."

"If you are looking for an open mind, want full attention, crisp explanations, sharp observation, and friendliness go no further!"

"Gray changed my life within the first 10 seconds of seeing me run! I have been a serious runner since childhood but had all kinds of injuries. Then in my mid 30s I started getting calf tears more and more regularly. I tried everything to no avail. Someone put me onto the ChiRunning book, which helped somewhat but not completely. Then I discovered Gray. Within 10 seconds of him watching me run he spotted things that no book could. He transformed my running immediately, and each week improves it further. I can now run as far as I like in complete confidence that I won’t get injured. Thank you Gray!"
