Life in Balance

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

Create space for your spirit to thrive

Have you felt this way:

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


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.

Qigong clears stagnation whether it's in the mind, heart, body, or spirit - or frankly all four! 

If you're looking for simple, supportive movements that root the body, mind, emotions, and spirit join me for Qigong.

These simple movements go much deeper than choreographed postures.

It is an ancient practice that teaches us to see the natural rhythms of life and tune in to them, creating more effortlessness in life.

Spring gives direction to life! It's the time of birth to the life of anything: humans, projects, ideas. It's a time when we have cultivated enough potential and now the potential has a direction to grow. It's a time of planning, being open to possibility without forgetting our quiet centers' that help us see the effortless path.

We're headed into the element of Wood for my next "Broaden The Path" series! Wood is a turn toward yang, the sun, movement, planning, and directing our energy to move forward while making sure we're rooted.

The work we do to transform our lives cannot be done alone in isolation. We are rich resources that can learn, rely and share with each other. This is what the SWL Community is all about.

This is a free access online place to explore taiji (tai Chi), qigong, meditation and a special place for teachers.

I hope you join me there.


“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.”

-Mary Jo Burkhardt
