Chi running was developed to provide an alternative to traditional running. Its aim is to make running more natural and free from pain. This is achieved by relieving the stress on the legs. Chi running was conceived on the belief that traditional running is based on power to fuel the runner so he could cover a distance as fast as he can. Chi running is based on the belief that it would be better to focus on efficiency and being relaxed just like in Tai Chi. In CR form takes a prime spot over being conditioned and being fast. This type of running can be especially useful to those who are just starting out in running since it can save their legs from too much stress, as well as to those who are engaged in long distance running. Just as in Tai Chi or in Yoga one has to be aware of all the movements done by the body in CR. No movement should be made without being fully conscious of it.
