Chi Walking, developed by Danny and Katherine Dreyer, has its roots in San Francisco, where Danny first started teaching the sister-technique, Chi Running, in 1999. After many requests from customers to develop a similar walking program, the Dreyers wrote ChiWalking: Fitness Walking for Lifelong Health and Energy, published by Simon & Schuster in 2006. Chi Walking has helped revolutionize walking -- one of the most economical and accessible forms of fitness -- into an enjoyable, pain-free, life enhancing activity. Individuals who practice Chi Walking have training programs, DVDs, audio programs and Certified Instructors available to help them learn the life-changing practice of walking.
