Sandy's January 2022
Fresh as Snow
Thank God for new beginnings, possible each year, each season, each day, each breath.
There is something about standing in new fallen snow that reminds us, deep in our souls, that we have the choice to begin anew, to wipe the slate clean and create a new chapter. To pull from our reserves and find resilience for what lies ahead.
And while many of us crave the security and comfort that comes with knowing what’s ahead, and having a routine we can count on, 2021 was another roller-coaster year, filled with hopeful highs and discouraging lows: Vaccines are here! Delta is surging. Say hello to new babies! Say too many final good-byes. Gather with friends without masks! Wait, Omicron has arrived.
I know we could all go on and on with examples of this turbulent ride we have been on. And yet…HERE WE ARE! With grace and resilience, we can begin anew. We can make a difference. We can take a stand. We can shine our light.
A few years ago a friend, Lesta, got me started with the tradition of choosing a focus word or phrase to enhance or replace traditional New Year’s Resolutions. What will yours be?
Mine for this coming year is: Making Room. Join me this Monday to hear what this means for me and to perhaps share your own with the group.
Blessings on your 2022,
P.S. Don't forget to begin using the new Zoom link for 2022!

"Sandy: I am so glad that I have a copy of your 'Tiger and Bear' video.
I would like to think I can do the workout without your guidance, but the truth is that it is a lot easier and not as thought-provoking to have your instruction. It allows me to focus on my movement instead of what to do next.
I really enjoy your classes, and the added advantage of the video is that I can pull it out when needed, e.g. after working on chores all day. It speeds up my recovery time - Thank you!!"

Spread the Word: Qigong Activates the Healer Within!
Bring A Friend – Practice for Free!
There is no doubt in my mind that your invitations to friends and family members is THE absolute best means of spreading the word about the healing power of Qigong!
Without someone who has personally experienced the effects of these practices bearing witness to another, most people simply do not understand what Qigong is or how it can make them feel.
Please consider who in your circle might benefit from Qigong and invite them to try a class for free. Each time you bring a new person to class, you can practice for free, too!
Suggested Fee: $10/class for one-time drop in
Flexible Commitment Options:
Purchase classes in advance and use them as you are able.
6 classes for $48 ($8/class)
10 classes for $70 ($7/class)
15 classes for $90 ($6/class)
I am committed to offering access to the healing power of Qigong to
all who seek to practice with us. Please don’t let financial hardship
get in the way of your health. Simply email me.
