(B) BIO (by & about the Instructor Millie) Since young, I had an interest in exercising & eating right. Living in NYC, I easily got caught in the fast city life. However I would not be far away from living a healthier life style. I would be involved w/exercising like bike ride, walking, jogging, ice skating, roller skating or learning a new exercise. Lots of the time, I took vitamins & ate right. I was aware of what foods were good for me & what to stay away from early on. I moved to Miami, Florida for a clean break out of the city & refreshed focus on a career based on exercising & eating right. I began to look at colleges for a career in Physical Therapy &/or Dietitian. W/still much uncertainty, I came across an ad that advertised, Massage Therapy. W/out any prior education, I used to give massages to friends & family & I would receive great compliments. Then I began to search for other massage therapy schools in the area. Months before I began, I had read a book about massage therapy & the many types of modalities this field has. After reading the book, I was eager to begin school. I began to learn a whole new lifestyle in the Holistic field. Right around this same time, my health was being compromised; whereon I took steps to process a lot in a short time. I began to be more involved w/learning all sorts of things like: meditation, juicing, Reiki & receiving treatment such as acupuncture, herbs, & massages. Being in Florida, I did a lot of swimming & some biking. My dad would speak to me about how Yoga can help me & I began to search for studios where that was taught. I searched until I found one that I liked, Bikram Hatha Yoga. I had great results & I was feeling stronger & healthier. I began to branch out in other forms of exercise, such other Yoga styles, Tai Chi & Chi Gong. Moving to LA was somewhat unplanned, due to an uncomfortable situation I was in. I asked the Higher Power to pull me out of this situation, these circumstances, & there it was when I saw the flier of Qigong Healing & Miracle Making. Qigong, an exercise I like. Healing, something I am familiar w/per massage therapy. Miracle Making, is what I wanted to manifest in my life. However, there were circumstances which I thought might have held me back from going. One being, I had a very bad cold, & the other my finances were tight. I had seen the flier 2 days before the event, so I kind of slept on the thought of making it to the workshop. One thing lead to another & accidentally, I had paid for the program twice. I enjoyed & embraced all the knowledge that I was learning, so when on the third day the Teacher mentioned that there would be a Level I Instructor course in two weeks. Instead of getting a refund, I let them know to put it on the Level I Instructor course. W/in the turmoil of being homeless, I still went forward in being certified & grow w/this. The 4 day workshop had so much material; I loved the feel of the empowerment I received from it. This workshop was covering topics from health, energy, cardiovascular exercise, muscular strength, muscular endurance, meditation & science. All these things that I am interested in, under one roof worked for me. I wanted to have all that wisdom to teach others the same, to help them take charge of their health. This whole body healing method from Food Based Healing to a slow impact exercise becomes a complete Whole Body Healing experience.
(C) I am hands on & I speak clearly explaining every step. I am able to address the needs of all learners: auditory, visual, & kinesthetic—in the way I present my material.
(D) PRESENTLY I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CERTIFY THIS CURRICULUM. HOWEVER, I HAVE THE SOLE RIGHT TO OFFER THIS MATERIAL.
Question: I am researching if I am able to have the students that complete this course earn CEUs.
