I discovered Taiji in 2009 and after twelve (12) introductory classes, I knew that it was something I needed to continue. The benefits can only be fully imagined when you experience the process firsthand. While it cannot promise to eliminate everything that ails you completely, it does a good job of making things that are manageable less constricting while providing the practitioner with those wonderful feel-good moments.

Movements, slow and deliberate with awareness of your body, are the key. It does not happen all at once, but it does happen IF you commit to doing something for yourself and take the time to learn it. In 2013, I spent 48 days in China that included 30 days at the Wudang Kung Fu & Tai Chi School to get a more up close & personal experience, and I got every bit of that and more.

My college degrees are in English Language & Literature/Creative Writing, with a very small minor in art, and I have a doctorate from the Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. I freelance various creative writing projects that find their way to my desk. I have worked with an International Classifications of Diseases (ICD) committee of 24 representatives from various countries part-time for 30 years (diagnosis coding is kind of a weird interest of mine).

I begin my day with Ba Duan Jin (Eight-Piece Brocade) Qigong. I am also certified to instruct it from a medical standpoint using Meridian paths connected to each organ to move the Qi, as well as to address emotions that may be present. I practice Tai Chi for Arthritis & Fall Prevention daily (a version of SUN style).
