I came away with so much more than I expected. I imagined I’d learn a few new calisthenics I could do at my desk a couple of times a day to supplement the hard core workout I should be doing after work. Instead, I learned how easy it is to move throughout the day (even though I have a desk job) and that little bits of movement really do add up. Maybe the biggest accomplishment has been that I no longer feel guilty about not being able (or even wanting) to keep up the no-pain-no-gain exercise routines that ultimately created more stress in my life. I’m now beginning to remember how much I used to truly enjoy moving my body for no other reason than just because it feels good. Thank you! ~C.N.
I would like to thank you for everything you've included in the course. It's very much what I need to accomplish my health goals. So much is explained and I truly need the movement exercises to loosen up my body. ~L.L.
From doing qigong, my energy is flowing in a new way and I am finally able to let go of what I no longer need and release the thoughts that were the source of my neck and head pain. I am grateful for the peace I feel knowing I have overcome a lifetime of anxiety and anger for assuming responsibility for the pain of others. ~E.L.
I always feel that I have to push myself, work up a big sweat when that is really not anywhere in my comfort level. I’ve always done a slow and steady form of exercise and thank you for confirming that that was a good thing to do! ~P.E.
