ChiRunning was developed in 1999 by Danny Dreyer, an American ultramarathon runner, t'ai chi practitioner, and founder of the North Carolina-based company Chi Running. Instruction of the method is disseminated in several ways, including instructor led courses, books, and videos. In 2004, Dreyer's first edition of his book, ChiRunning, was released and sold 150,000 copies. Partnered with New Balance, Dreyer helped design a running shoe that was released in 2008 for runners that utilize a midfoot strike.

Famous quotes containing the word development:
“Dissonance between family and school, therefore, is not only inevitable in a changing society; it also helps to make children more malleable and responsive to a changing world. By the same token, one could say that absolute homogeneity between family and school would reflect a static, authoritarian society and discourage creative, adaptive development in children.”
—Sara Lawrence Lightfoot (20th century)
“Somehow we have been taught to believe that the experiences of girls and women are not important in the study and understanding of human behavior. If we know men, then we know all of humankind. These prevalent cultural attitudes totally deny the uniqueness of the female experience, limiting the development of girls and women and depriving a needy world of the gifts, talents, and resources our daughters have to offer.”
—Jeanne Elium (20th century)
“Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality.
And dreams in their development have breath,
And tears, and tortures, and the touch of joy.”
—George Gordon Noel Byron (17881824)
