“ A good place to get the basics or to get a better understanding of Pose Method or ChiRunning and barefoot or minimalist running. The concepts are put into practice right away during a 2 to 4 mile run. Teaching students of these methods that to run with a quick cadence allows less impact and therefore less injuries. As the Intro sessions progress there will be groups that do social 6 or social 8 miles runs so that one can practice as these slower speeds the quicker cadence and the proper form for Pose or Chi. The basic understanding is that the ball/hill/ball form of running is the same at slower speeds so that when ready one can increase their speed by simply leaning from the ankle while still maintaining the cadence that was practiced at the slower speed. Getting the form and style right at a slower speed will translate directly to the same form and style at a fast speed. Simply: one learns to fall gracefully at a faster speed with a continued graceful recovery with each step ”

“ Some of us might run efficiently (properly?) by nature, but most of us could use a little help. I'm 6'7", so running normally for me involves giant strides and a lot more movement than necessary. Ozzie teaches a simple set of principles to limit the effort required to get yourself around the course. I'd recommend this group to any runner who hasn't thought about their form and thinks they might be able to get better efficiency out of each step. ”

“ I truly believe in the method taught and believe everyone could benefit from it. ”
— Marc A. on Dec 20, 2009.
“ Ozzie Gontang is a masterful instructor of the Pose Method and ChiRunning. His suggestions can help you overcome chronic injuries, run faster and more efficiently. The group is very friendly and supportive of newcomers. If you have been told you shouldn't run, give the clinic a try. A great clinic for walkers too! ”
