Chi Running Workshop
Run Better with Less Injury!


Join Jean Gillis Wellness, and Master Chi Running Instructor, Vince Vaccaro, to learn to run more efficiently, and with less injury!

We will be guiding you through many exercises and drills designed to leave you with a clear sense of what the Chi Running technique feels like in your body. We will not be doing lots of running (contrary to what you might imagine), so no matter what condition you're in, have no fear. We will spend the day alternating between demonstrations, fun exercises and technique drills... the nature of the day will be relaxed, full, and inspiring.
