The ChiWalking Technique
Walking is the safest and easiest way to get into shape, enjoy the outdoors, and lift and enliven your spirits.
Learn to blend walking with the movement principles of T’ai Chi to create balance and strength, to improve overall health, and to manage stress.
Walking is such a basic, everyday movement, and when you improve the quality of how you walk, you’ll improve the quality of your life.
