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.

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. Join me and connect to your own inner quiet and wisdom that comes from the full depth of a mindful movement practice.

TAIJI AND QIGONG BEYOND THE MOVEMENTS

The 5 Elements are part of an ancient on how to live in harmony with the aliveness around us. It's guidance on how to be, rather than how to do.

We're headed into the element of Fire for my next "Broaden The Path" series! Fire is full-on yang energy! It's bringing the planning, creativity, organization of the Element of Wood and showing its fruition!

This is the end of planning and the show going on!

When we're having such a good time during the show, we have to temper the Element of Fire because it can quickly turn into mania, overexcitement, and issues with the cardiovascular system, the small intestine and sensing our rootedness.

Explore the wonders of Summer and the Element of Fire with me in mid-June through July. Click the link to read more about the course.

“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.”
