Improve Your ChiRunning – It’s (Not) All About the Lean by David Stretanski
Fellow ChiRunning Master Instructor David Stretanski has a great blog that I follow EnerChiFitness.com. He's a pretty technical guy and likes to break down the ChiRunning concepts into the specific pieces. He also has great diagrams and videos with stick-like figures to help you get the concepts visually.
Here's one article he posted I really liked: It's (Not) All About the Lean. He points out lean is important but where it comes from and how it is accomplished (ankles and relaxation) are the parts that make it happen. Keep in mind you must maintain your postural structure. This is a difficult concept to teach so I thought this article might help.
