Alice Diffely Master Instructor
A native of Portland, Certified Chi Running® and Chi Walking® Master Instructor, RRCA Certified Running Coach, and Registered Yoga Teacher Alice Peters Diffely has been an avid runner ever since she competed for Lincoln High School’s cross country and track teams. Alice was a member of Stanford University’s track team during her freshman year of college, until she was sidelined by injuries. She consistently placed in her age group in local road races throughout her 20’s. Competitive highlights include a 3:06 marathon finish as a law school student. Beginning in her early 30’s, Alice experienced recurring bouts of Achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis, which caused her to limit her running for several years. With the help of Chi Running® and Chi Walking®, Alice has learned to manage, recover from, and avoid those injuries. She is enjoying her running and walking tremendously. Now in her 40’s, Alice is once again placing well in her age group in local road and trail races. In addition to running and walking, Alice practices yoga and meditation regularly. She lives in NW Portland with her husband and two children. Alice offers group and individual Chi Running® and Chi Walking® instruction throughout the Portland Metropolitan Area. She also teaches weekly yoga classes at Shine Yoga in NW Portland.
