Katherine Dreyer, cofounder and chief executive officer of Chi Living, Inc., is cocreator, with her husband Danny Dreyer, of the ChiRunning®, ChiWalking®, and ChiLiving® programs, which blend the subtle inner focuses of tai chi with running, walking, and everyday life. As cofounders of ChiLiving, Inc., Katherine and Danny have spent nearly a decade writing about ChiWalking® and ChiRunning®, producing DVDs, and teaching classes and instructor training courses throughout the country and abroad.
Back in 1999, Katherine convinced Danny that ChiRunning® was worthy of their focus and attention. “As soon as I heard how people were responding to Danny’s classes, I knew that it was important that this information get out to more people,” she says. Together, they are coauthors of ChiRunning: A Revolutionary Approach to Effortless, Injury-free Running and ChiWalking: Five Mindful Steps to Lifelong Health and Energy.
Katherine Dreyer’s professional career combines 30 years of experience publishing health and fitness materials, with more than 20 years of study of Eastern philosophy and practices. She is former president of New Hope Communications, the leading communications company for the natural health business. She also helped to launch HealthShop.com, a natural health website.
