Welcome to BlueSkyRunning!

I’m Hannah Kirkman. Based in Taunton, I’m the first certified Chi Running and Chi Walking instructor in the South West.

Based on the principles of T’ai Chi, Chi Running teaches body alignment and relaxation while running, lessening the impact of running on the body, reducing the risk of injury, and helping you to run in as effortless a way as possible.

I run regular Chi Running workshops in Bristol, Exeter and Taunton. I also offer 1-to-1 and bespoke group coaching.

No exaggeration to say Chi running has revolutionised the way I run. Constant running injuries had me on the verge of giving up. Chi running has taught me it’s a matter of learning good technique that works with your body instead of my previous “no pain no gain” approach. I read the Chi running book and watched the video but there is no substitute for a good teacher like Hannah to guide you through the principles and give you feedback on your form. Thank you Hannah for showing me I am “Born to run” after all! - Adrian Exell, Somerset
