Atul Arora - Certified Instructor - Chi Living

Atul Arora — Certified Instructor

I was born and brought up in New Delhi, India and moved to Brisbane, Australia in 2004. I am an Athletics Australia Level 2 Recreational Running Coach and provide online, group and personal coaching (part time) in and outside Australia. I have special interest in biomechanics, nutrition and developing half and full marathon training plans. I have completed (with high distinction) my ChiRunning® & ChiWalking® Instructor Training with Danny Dreyer in February 2018. I am also working full time as a Business Process Improvement professional.

My passion for distance running started in 2009. Since then I have completed nine Marathons with a personal best of 2hrs 54mins, several half-marathons (PB 1hr 21mins), 10k (PB 36mins 55mins) and 5k (PB 17mins 55secs) races. I have also completed a 47 miles race in 8hrs 13mins in New York in 2013.

I extensively practice yoga and meditation, and mentor others on its application in daily life and running. I have a strong interest in advocating the role of running as a powerful instrument for promoting global harmony. I do that by taking part in an international running relay event known as the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run.
