A bit about me and my practices….

My background is in coaching youth sports and fitness training, but a number of years ago, I suffered a freak injury during a blood donation. I had been intrigued by Traditional Chinese Medicine for some time, but it was only when I took the leap of faith from reading to doing that I finally got some relief from that injury.

Hooked, I dove deep into Qigong, studying the techniques and traditions of well respected practitioners around the world. While there is considerable nuance between various traditions, there certainly are common threads in methods that in some cases have been in continuous use for thousands of years.

Enter the pandemic ….  already a certified qigong instructor, youth soccer coach, boot camp instructor, and TRX trainer, I wanted to deeply explore a single qigong lineage. Long White Cloud Qigong, based in New Zealand,  is highly focused on the body’s energetic systems. I completed the LWC Small Universe Qigong Instructor Program and have joined the worldwide cadre of Long White Cloud Qigong instructors.  Although I continue to study and offer a variety of practices both modern and traditional, I am thrilled to be able to bring the practices of the Long White Cloud lineage to you.

The methods are ancient, but they are quite relevant today.  Getting on in years now (pushing 60…), I find these practices nourishing to body, mind, and spirit.  A dad of 8, with 4 still at home plus frequent care of a grandchild, life can be crazy.  Mindfulness practices are my calm in the storm and qigong is my main go-to.
