I have been a yoga practitioner for more than 30 years and have been teaching yoga for 10 years. Since discovering qigong (and Martha!) almost a year ago, my personal practice has shifted as well as my teaching. I feel more centered and grounded. My poses feel more aligned to allow the optimal flow of qi and release blockages in the mind and body.

I feel I am teaching from a more authentic place, my heart. I attribute this to being able to experience the alignment between my true nature and the Nature of the universe and all living things. The breathing exercises in qigong (ZBE) are more effective to me than any pranayama practice I have done in yoga. And I am able to practice consistently each day without resistance. What a blessing!” —W. S., Yoga Teacher, Encinitas, CA
