Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate

Do you feel you cannot create? And want to paint? Contact me and we can start from the basics...supplies, colors, subject, and technique. We would start small. In several lessons have one or many paintings done. One lesson might be a chance to ask questions about supplies you already own...as a gift...or sitting around for years. The student walks away with skills and feeling of confidence to proceed on ones own...well worth the effort. Sincerely, Janet

Are looking to increase calm energy? Learn something new? Heal an issue and feel better? Look better?

Hello there. My experience with the QiGong is one of beginning to pass on the great training I have had. Not only in the QiGong. It is the strength and beauty of movement in other martial arts, yoga, nature hikes.

*Please note...I am in the process of getting another video intro by me. Signing up for a series of lessons though will most likely answer all questions though. Healing movement...questions answered at a rate of a couple a week...additional material provided if you you would like.

My background with the arts, holistic practitioning, home education based on waldorf model, and even clothing design and making enhance the interaction we have.

Bringing forth from past experiences to you. This movement helps with weight issues, actively helps eliminate back issues, and can help to eliminate other physical issues.

I look forward to working with you. In a way that you can express to me as well any goals further than an authentic QiGong practice to start.
