Hannah Kirkman Certified Instructor
Based in Somerset, in South West England, I’ve been a keen road runner since training for my first marathon in the early 1990s. I hit injury problems within the first year, and these just got worse and worse over time, despite extensive – and expensive! – physiotherapy. Like many in the running community, I just accepted injury as an occupational hazard, so it was a revelation to discover through Chi Running that it doesn’t have to be that way.
Chi Running has not only enabled me to run injury-free for more than six years but it’s given me back my enjoyment of running. I decided to become a Chi Running instructor because I want to be able to share that experience with other runners.
I run regular Chi Running workshops in Bristol, Dorchester, Exeter and Taunton. I also offer 1:1 Chi Running and Chi Walking coaching.
