Channeling is the skill of channeling mental strength into other parts of the body. All elves can do it, including Talentless. Some examples of it are extremely high jumps, fast running, and super strength. Sophie's first physical education class was on channeling; she failed quite miserably, performing only at her normal strength. Later in the series, she is shown to have improved at channeling. For example, she channels when running away from Ruy in Neverseen. Dex and Biana both have exhibited great displays of channeling.
