I know what it feels like to suffer from depression, anxiety, chronic low-back pain, fatigue, and massive stress.
For years, I struggled to find balance. I was in my 20s, I had just graduated from Columbia University, and I knew that something was wrong. At the time, I didn’t realize that it was clinical depression, and I had no clue what an anxiety attack was.
But I knew that I had back pain, and I knew that I was unwell, and so I started searching. I’m so grateful that I found qigong and tai chi.
What brought me out of the darkness was learning to let not just my body, but also my breath and my energy flow.
Some people don’t understand how a combination of movement, breath, and meditation can be medicine. But the ancient Eastern masters did. They understood. And I’m so grateful to them for passing these amazing healing arts down through the generations.
