Here Are Some Comments from Practitioners
“Thank you for the Qigong Breath work series. I can actually feel groundedness in my feet and improvement in the flow of energy, and flow of breath.” ~ Susan C.
“Cindy is well informed and disciplined in teaching and communicating the subtle aspects of movements and internal relaxation practices. My practice of T’ai Chi has increased awareness of energy flows within the body, improved physical stability, resulted in emotional calm even under stressful circumstances, directed mental focus toward unique solutions to difficult problems, and created connections with people and environments, all leading to situational awareness and conscious decision-making.” ~ Hollis H.
“I had a few years previously taken a Tai Chi class she taught, and can say that her expertise and attention to detail are characteristic of all her teaching, whether one-on-one or in a class. Cindy’s close but kind attention to detail has helped me to retain the lessons. I would enthusiastically recommend her as a teacher.” ~ Nancy R.
“I have had positive health changes since taking the breath program, and have benefited from more relaxing breathing techniques.” ~ Susan H.
“I get a lot out of the Tai Chi classes. After class I feel so much more relaxed and at peace with myself. After taking the classes for a few years now, I find that I am thinking more about my posture and making corrections to improve my posture throughout the day. I can recommend that you take the Tai Chi and/or Qi Gong classes.”~ Ken L.
“In the last several years, I have been diagnosed with many different ailments from arthritis in my spine to diabetes, heart problems, high blood pressure, kidney disease, and COPD. I began on a journey of healing by enrolling in a tai chi class.
“Tai Chi has benefited me by reducing my pain significantly. I now sleep better at night. I can breath deeply again. I no longer get pains in my chest and I have my balance back again. Tai Chi has also helped to calm me when stress starts tearing at me. Tai Chi also gives me energy when my batteries are running low.
“Since I have started Tai Chi, I have not had a cold or the flu, which I always battle during the winter months. This is a miracle in itself.” ~ Bonnie P.
“I started Tai Chi with Tai Chi for Health and I have seen great results in my ability to take a full breath. I have Asthma and Sinus problems and by doing Tai Chi breathing and massage I can sleep through the night. I am in a very stressful job and I have finally started to relax, and my stress level is lower than it has ever been. Now I know how to keep it there.” ~Brian M.
“I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and continually missed work due to the resulting pain. It was so agonizing at times; I could not even get off the couch. On a scale of 1 to 10, my pain was a constant 8 or 9, or higher. The pain medications were as debilitating as the pain itself, as they caused extreme fatigue.
“A co-worker talked me into taking Tai Chi. I thought, “What do I have to lose? I’ve tried everything else!” So, through the pain and exhaustion I attended class and practiced every day. Low impact and not strenuous at all, this was my kind of exercise! Slowly, I was starting to not hurt as much.
“I know that I will continue with Tai Chi for my life. There is no way I will go back to the “old” me – the me that was in so much pain that I couldn’t work, or even enjoy life. I encourage EVERYONE to try it. It is life changing!” I have been able to function as a normal human being, not plagued with debilitating pain. ~ Kirsta H.
