The exercise is actually called ChiRunning. ChiRunning is a style of running with t’ai chi influences. It’s a “quasi-yoga-based form of running that is supposed to lower injury risk”.

ChiRunning is also defined as using “tai chi principles to focus on alignment, relaxation, and good form when running and walking.” It is stated to emphasize posture, core strength, relaxed legs, and “mindfulness.”

So, what’s Tai chi? For your information, Tai chi is an ancient Chinese practice that is now practiced to stay in shape. It involves a series of slow, focused movements done while taking deep breaths.

Why people should try ChiRunning?

There are many benefits of ChiRunning, such as:

  • reduces the risks of injury
  • improves body’s posture
  • makes you faster
