If You're Not a Runner, Try ChiWalking
ChiWalking, like relaxed and easier on the body. ChiWalkers don't lock their knees, they tilt their shoulder-hip-ankle line forward so that gravity pulls them along, and they allow the spine to twist and hips to rotate. Like ChiRunning, it can be learned by reading (ChiWalking, Fireside, $14.95), watching a DVD, or attending workshops around the country (a half-day runs $100; see www.chirunning.com for the schedule).
