    More on my training and background


Qigong and Taijiquan 

    Qigong and Taijiquan are traditional Chinese energy cultivation and martial arts studies. They are exercises that combine posture and movement with breath and focussed mind practice. Qi itself is air literally, in cultivation practice we can think of it as the "spark" that motivates all things in life. As our Qi circulation becomes more organized and refined through regular practice, everything begins to function more smoothly. There are many examples of the effectiveness of these practices in improving both minor and serious health imbalances. Taiji and Qigong are fun and rewarding to learn and make you feel great!
