Danby Paterson — Certified Instructor

Whether you consider yourself a runner or a walker or someone in between, I can help you take “steps” to become more efficient and pain free. 

Before I was introduced to ChiRunning, I suffered from IT Band issues, pulled hamstrings, plantar fasciitis….you name, I had it.  I heard about a ChiRunning clinic at my local running store and everything that the instructor was saying and demonstrating made so much sense!  Finally a technique that offered a gentle approach to a beloved activity that is so often perceived as “hard on the body and joints”. From that day forward, I never looked back. 
I have been practicing ChiRunning and ChiWalking for over 3 years and I became a certified ChiWalking/ChiRunning instructor in June of 2014.  My goal is to help ChiLiving founders, Danny and Katherine Dreyer, spread the word that there IS a better way to run and/or walk that is more efficient and reduces the risk of injury.

Contact me today for a private lesson, group lesson/workshop (up to 8 people).  Each lesson will contain video analysis so you can see first hand how much you improve and things you may need to work on.
