Danny Dreyer is the founder of ChiRunning and ChiWalking which are based on the inner principles of T’ai Chi. Danny and his wife Katherine have been pioneers in teaching runners and walkers how to turn their fitness regimen into a mindful practice. Together they have co-authored three seminal books on mindful movement: ChiRunning, ChiWalking and ChiMarathon, all published by Simon & Schuster.
Danny is also a lecturer and a leader in promoting injury prevention and higher performance through improving one’s running or walking technique. His work is based on his 20-year study of T’ai Chi and his 45 years of running and racing every distance from a 5K to 100 miles, including 43 ultra marathons (with podium finishes in his age group in all but three). He has helped countless runners from beginners to elites set new PR’s in both time and distance… without getting injured in the process. He has also been a featured speaker at most of the major U.S. marathons.
ChiRunning is now published in 12 languages and taught in 23 countries by over 200 certified instructors.
