Qigong consists of simple, natural, slow body movement combined with deep breathing and focus to produce numerous health benefits, from lowering blood pressure to improving immune status to reducing stress and creating a tranquil outlook on life. Good for young and old, those "in shape" and those who are not.
I have been practicing Tai Chi and Qigong since 2001, and hold a 4th degree Black Sash in Tai Chi from GrandMaster Gohring’s School of Tai Chi in Austin, Texas. While I love to learn new forms, practice with weapons, and practice push hands (tai chi sparring), I enjoy teaching meditative Qigong as well as simple, short Tai Chi forms for people who may not want to dedicate themselves to intensive practice. I am certified to teach Tai Chi Easy, Integral Tai Chi, and Qigong by the Institute for Integral Qigong and Tai Chi (IIQTC). I am also a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist as well as a Level 2 Emotional Brain Training Provider. My lifelong focus has been on helping others heal themselves. —Diane Graves
