INTERNAL ALCHEMY meditation, I have been practicing and teaching since 1986. I healed myself of severe chronic illness and broken bones with Internal Alchemy.

FLEXIBILITY, YIN YOGA & VINYASA
I trained in dance (ballet, jazz, modern, lyrical) from 1985 - 2003, performed, choreographed and taught for a few years. This brings me much knowledge in the ways of proper alignment and safe building of flexibility.

I began practicing QiGong in 2003. I trained at Kun Yu Shan Academy of Martial Arts in China in 2006. I studied Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at Dragon Rises College 2009-2010.
