"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." LAO TZU

We are faced with hundreds of tiny decisions throughout the day, and each one holds the opportunity to choose chaos or calm. Even taking a few moments to relieve stress before responding encourages better decision making. When we feel calm and centered we naturally make better decisions. 

One thing I know for sure? Knowing how to play with our vital life force energy matters because it determines the quality of our health and happiness 24/7!

When I was in my early thirties, a dancer I admired suggested I try T'ai Chi Chih and I fell in love with the gentle rhythmic movements instantly! My Teacher insisted I take the Teacher's Training course lead by the originator of the form, Justin Stone, and while rehearsing my graduation presentation, a woman asked "isn't that T'ai Chi'? That one question changed the course of my life.

Ironically, just hours before receiving my TCC Accreditation diploma, I agreed to start teaching an evening class at my apartment complex. The funny thing was I had no intention of teaching, I just wanted to learn all I could about the nuances hidden with the movements. Fortunately this is a life long practice that improves with time, and I feel very grateful and blessed to still be learning every day. 

Today Seniors  want to lead happy, healthy lives. In the time we have left on this earth, we want to learn and know how to generate the greatest quality of life.

People find my classes through a friend or their doctor's referral. Students notice their balance quickly improves and they sleep better. Some students let go of excess weight, lower blood pressure and require less medication, and others heal faster than their doctor expected after surgery.

Besides teaching Qigong classes, I offer Life Coaching programs for Entrepreneurs and Voice Over Actors wanting to optimize their peak performance skills to achieve BIG goals. 

My programs offer strategic solutions that help you reach your goals quickly while experiencing a renewed sense of awareness, connection and inner peace. You're already a STAR in your field, and need a clever strategist, loyal confidant and enthusiastic cheerleader who can understand where you are, where you want to go, and knows how to help you get there.

If you're looking for a T'ai Chi Chih class or some creative fuel, send me a note. Contact
