Last spring my doctor recommended I begin doing tai chi for chronic shoulder issues. After viewing a lot of different instructors videos I chose to go with Leia’s teachings. I’ve participated in all of her seasonal workshops and have gleaned valuable tips such as drinking warm water, not easy in the heat of the summer! Also eating from seasonal fruits and vegetables. Kick the gluten out of my life, drinking dandelion tea , bone broth and many other things. And I’ve lost 20 pounds as a gift! The Taiflow and chigong routines are part of my daily routine. Other things I have noticed include acute sense of smell, a sense of calm yet full of energy. I experienced a strange rash as though my body was purging things it no longer needed. My balance is better! And so my day begins with standing meditation, a chi gong tapping of meridians, some stretches and a flow because I love the repetition. And did I mention how cool the Monday night live classes are? You get to have class with people all over the globe!
