What Is Qi?

Many first time students ask me what the meaning of Qi is. In simple terms, Qi (pronounced 'chee') refers to the body's vital life force energy and the concept of Qi is an underlying principle to Traditional Chinese Medicine and martial arts. It can also be translated as 'breath' or 'gas (air)'. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Qi is said to flow through the body along channels or meridians.

I Knew This Was Important!

I watched the "Today" show this morning and learned that Rosie O'Donnell had a heart attack last week. The worst kind. She had what is called a "widow maker" because it is the kind of heart attack that can kill you in a second. She was lucky, and survived. You can read all about it on her blog if you want. Her story is compelling.I know this subject is important. My father had a heart attack also. He was lucky, and survived. He is now 85 years old and still plays tennis.

Beginning of School

Now with the children away to school, lets focus on making ourselves healthy!  Do something for yourself, go for a walk, join an exercise class, etc.  I have recently lost 6 pounds and my goal is 10 pounds.  My reward will be a massage!!  Always be positive. Take one day, or minute, or even a second at a time.
