ChiWalking Clinic – Wallingford, CT
Learn to walk easier and injury-free!
ChiWalking combines movement principles from Thai Chi with the activity of walking, allowing you to walk more efficiently, and with less impact.
In this workshop, myself, and Master Instructor Vince Vaccaro, will teach you the basic components of the ChiWalking technique. You will be guided through many exercises and drills designed to leave you with a clear sense of what the ChiWalking technique feels like in your body. You will not be doing lots of walking (contrary to what you might imagine), so no matter what condition you’re in, have no fear. The day will alternate between direct instruction, demonstrations, fun exercises and technique drills. Our goal is to keep it relaxed, engaging, personalized and inspiring.
