I call myself a stress survivor. As a young man, in a corporate job, I thought you had to accept all stress that was handed to you and to keep striving to move up the corporate ladder. Waking up in the hospital due to stress, woke me in several ways. I knew I had to change my attitude towards stress to make my life better. My doctor sent me to BioFeedback training, a technical form of meditation. I believe it saved my life, and I started searching for other forms of meditation. I have not stopped meditating for over 40 years.
I have been a meditator and practiced mindful movement modalities (Kundalini Yoga, Tai Chi, Qigong, meditation, Dao Yin Yoga) most of my adult life. I believe strongly that gentle movement is required for a healthy, enjoyable life.
I trained, so I could dedicate my retirement years to sharing these practices with others, an experience which I greatly enjoy. My classes are designed to be accessible to all levels of abilities, regardless of age, abilities, or challenges.
Teaching mindfulness in my classes, I lead people to slow down, be in the present moment, calm their minds, and counter act the effects of stress. I believe this enhances the quality of life.
