WORKSHOP: THE BREATH OF PRESENCE - NOVEMBER 21

Life in Balance

Release the tension. Quiet the mind. Soften the emotions.
Live from your center.

Create space for your spirit to thrive

Have you felt this way:

  • you're tasks or job is the center of your life.
  • that you have no feeling of purpose or that you've lost a lot of the joy you used to feel
  • that your spark and curiosity are missing
  • over emotional or a lack of emotional connection?
  • feeling chronic tension in places and flaccidity in others
  • tired, irritated and done.

I felt all of this. 

And you can read more of my story here

But even better, I'd love you to try the practice of Taiji and see if you notice your own shift.

Here's how this practice drops you right into the center of your life. Try this movement with me. Notice the subtle shift that takes place. If you can do it in this short video, you can do it in the rest of your life.

Hi!

My name is Lucy. And over 20 years ago, Taiji saved my life.

It shifted my perspective and brought awareness, clarity, and love. I am forever grateful.

I now teach these practices to anyone longing for genuine openness, ease, and a fulfilling life.

My guided meditations, easy to follow videos, understandable philosophy will gently shift you away from anger and guilt, releasing behavior that no longer serves you.

UPCOMING WORKSHOPS AND COURSE SERIES

A meaningful practice goes beyond the physical movement. You have to be moved in every way - physical, emotional and mental - in order for your spirit to thrive. The movements are taught in terms of the way they can help direct our lives to feel more effortless, connected, rich and rooted. I explain in terms that are understandable, but include the traditional cultural expressions so we feel connected to the historical depth of the practice and the people who made it possible for us to do so.

THE BREATH OF PRESENCE WORKSHOP

Dive into the importance of breath as we explore the season of autumn. Autumn reflects the element of Metal which restores our quiet thoughtfulness, increases our ability to focus and breathe, and teaches us to let go of what no longer serves us.  Metal synchronizes with Autumn and turns us to a quiet space of contemplation and awareness building. 

Add layers to your internal practices by tapping into this rich and ancient art.

Coming Up at Shift With Lucy

“Lucy Bartimole changed my life. I initially came to Shift to work with Lucy for the physical benefits of tai chi, specifically balance and strength - both of which have increased over the past 3 years. However, along the way, I really began to learn and appreciate the other aspects of tai chi, specifically the mental and emotional aspects of tai chi. Learning how to pay attention to my breathing and listening my body has brought me mindfulness, an ability to choose to react (or not), and a sense of peace and connectedness to the world.”

ACUPRESSURE FOR EASY BREATHING

Each week I offer a free video that touches on the internal practices of taiji and qigong.

I'm using a Qigong movement from the 8 Pieces of Brocade to demonstrate how you can use movement to create a felt sense of letting go.

This time of year, trees are letting go of leaves, birds are letting go of summer homes, we are finding ourselves letting go of jobs, homes, and so much more in this pandemic.

Join me for this practice of grieving and letting go with Qigong.

Check the video out here!
