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.

She has been involved in the natural products and the health and fitness industry for more than 35 years. She is a writer, lecturer, teacher, and life coach, and has been the visionary leader of the entire line of ChiLiving products and services. She has taught ChiRunning and ChiWalking to thousands of people.

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 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.
