I’m also a qigong instructor and earned my 200-hour teacher certification with the National Qigong Association. I’ve practiced qigong for over 15 years and am certified in several forms, including Yin Yang, Three Treasures, Five Elements, Eight Brocades, and Twelve Devas (and soon the Great Dance of Eight!) I teach on Saturday mornings at Kingston’s Yoga Lab and have taught qigong and meditation on weekend retreats, at SUNY New Paltz, Yoga on the Wallkill, and the O+ Festival.

Qigong is an ancient practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that naturally heals the body, balances the emotions, sharpens the mind, and raises consciousness. Qigong means “energy work” and is a Body-Mind-Spirit wellness system that combines Posture, Breathing, Meditation, Visualization, Movement, and Self-massage to achieve optimal health.

Depending on our circumstances, habits, and reactions to life, we can either gain or lose Qi, or bio-energy. A regular practice of qigong restores our mental clarity, natural health, and higher consciousness, and harmonizes mind, body, and spirit. This balance of being lucid, energetic, and in the flow is considered the foundation of a lasting healthy life in qigong.

I’m grateful to my wise and generous teachers over the years, which include Dr. Aihan Kuhn, Tina Zhang, Dr. Eva Wong, Gao Han, Randi Eisman, and Paul Bloom among others.
