Class will meet in the North Conway Community Room located on the 2nd floor of the Outpatient Physical Therapy Room. Class will gradually move outside to trail and pavement. Why ChiRunning? Simle, it's injury-free and pain-free. ChiRunning is based on movement principles of T’ai Chi, but you don’t need to know T’ai Chi to ChiRun. All you need to know is how using your core can transform your running.

Chi (pronounced "chee") is the energy that unites body, mind, and spirit.Energy moves from your core (also known as your “center” or “dantien”) into the limbs to create movement.

Engaging your core and relaxing your limbs allows your legs to simply support your body weight instead of pushing or pulling it forward.

When your structure is aligned and your muscles and joints are relaxed, chi can flow freely through the body, making running feel effortless
