What Ozzie G. is saying about this Meetup Group

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
