Marion Meesters Master Instructor
Marion lives in the Netherlands (Europe) and started running in the early 90’s. Confronted with recurring injuries and not wanting to stop running, she began looking for a better way to run and found ChiRunning by the end of 2004. Being injury free since then, she now runs on a daily basis, just like she wants to. She is an ultrarunner and has run several 6-hour races and longer.
If ChiRunning was good for her, she thought, then other people should know about it too. So, wanting to spread ChiRunning in the Netherlands and Europe, she decided to take the Certified Instructor course. She was trained by Danny and Chris in San Francisco and certified in June 2006. Since then, she has taught ChiRunning and ChiWalking to lots of people in the Netherlands as well as quite a number of Germans and Belgians. She assisted Danny in a London workshop and in the instructor training course in Dublin. In 2007 she received the title ChiRunning/ChiWalking Master Instructor. In 2010 she trained a group of instructors in Amsterdam, together with Danny. In 2012 and 2013 she did two instructor training courses, both in Berlin.
Besides ChiRunning and ChiWalking, she is also a certified Running Therapist and and Energy Control Coach (based on Breathing Therapy and Exercise Physiology). She gives workshops and individual lessons, and works with people who are depressed, have a burnout, are chronically fatigued, have fibromyalgia or have other stress and/or fatigue related problems.
