Certified QiGong Instructors; Certified Tai Chi Instructor (Marshall)

1. Learn a series of self health exercises, easy to learn, yet proven to yield beneficial results without the need for pharmaceuticals.

2. Become aware of your body - your bones, joints, muscles, and tendons - and how focused breathing and gentle movement bring each of us to improved health.

3. Meditative movement with focused, directed breathing brings improved mental relaxation, balanced emotions, and overall improved health for a better quality of life.

Our story.

Having personally reduced or eliminated the need for drugs, and having personally felt the physical and psychological benefits of Therapeutic QiGong and Tai Chi, we want to help others become familiar with their own bodies, to be more aware of their abilities, and to improve their health in a safe manner.

Life outside the office.

When Gail isn’t puttering in the garden or working on a crochet project, you’ll probably find her in the kitchen, up to her elbows baking her favourite specialties.
