What is ChiWalking?

Whether you are a fitness walker already, want to manage or release weight, are rehabilitating after illness or injury, or want to stay active while you’re aging, ChiWalking® will help you reach your personal goals, including looking and feeling better than ever.

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.

Program at Nathan Benderson Park

Take advantage of a monthly program designed specifically for the enjoyment of Nathan Benderson Park, meeting near the Ronald A. Balducci Playground. The program includes:

• Class 1 – 1 ½ hours devoted to the Lower Body
• Class 2 – 1 ½ hours devoted to the Upper Body
• A bonus session of a Graduate Walk will be arranged at a future date to be determined.

Fall session dates for October, November and December are noted below.

Susan McGregor – Certified Instructor

Susan has been practicing ChiWalking® and ChiRunning® since 2006. She began running at age 60 and in the early years tore both meniscuses. It was the injury prevention emphasis of the practices that enticed her to investigate the benefits of the technique. To this day she has not had knee surgery and continues to run and walk regularly for mental and physical well-being. Susan has run six marathons (including five World Majors) and as recently as the summer of 2016 did the last 200 kilometers of the Camino de Santiago in Spain. She taught in the Washington, D.C., area prior to moving to Sarasota – where the weather and lifestyle lend themselves to a continued practice. She would enjoy sharing the techniques and benefits of ChiWalking® with people in Sarasota and Manatee counties.
