ChiLiving: The Wisdom, Power and Gentleness of T’ai Chi as a Roadmap for Life

The fundamental principles that make T’ai Chi the “mother of all martial arts” present us with a skill set to live and grow by. Bring these ancient guidelines to bear on your everyday choices and improve the quality of your whole life. Join ChiLiving®, ChiRunning® and ChiWalking® founders, Katherine and Danny Dreyer, at their first-ever ChiLiving Workshop at the Omega Institute September 17th-22nd, 2017. Explore the workings of the two complementary forces of Yin and Yang in everything we practice in this workshop from:

  • ChiWalking or ChiRunning*
  • T’ai Chi and Qigong exercises*
  • Meditating with curiosity
  • Nourishing your self by gathering energy
  • Expressing your self by issuing energy
  • Determining the core of what you stand firm for
  • Realizing the profound strength of surrendering to what IS

*previous experience not required

As Yin and Yang energies are used appropriately, your life begins to smooth out, make sense and find a flow that is peaceful and powerful. You’ll experience your innate vitality and joyfulness as the truth of who you are emerges. We’ll explore, discover and practice complimentary skills such as:

  • Alignment and relaxation
  • Focused spaciousness
  • Stillness in movement
  • Gathering and issuing
  • Being kind but firm, with ourselves and with others

Many people have said ChiRunning has changed their life, not just because of the running, but because they transferred their experience and knowledge to the rest of their life. You can apply these principles to: parenting, health and fitness, career, relationships, creative expression, spiritual exploration...wherever your life needs to be rebalanced and supported.

Learn to approach life as a T’ai Chi Master would, focused in your intent, centered in your physical and personal integrity, clear, open and innately responsive to the world around you.

With a global presence of Certified Instructors in over 25 countries, they have taught thousands of students the art of intelligent movement.
