Life in Balance

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

These ancient practices 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.


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.

Coming Up at Shift With Lucy


Dive into the importance of breath as we explore Taiji's Metal Element. 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.



A quick video practice to learn two points to support the Metal Element, your breathing, lungs and...wait for it...large intestine!

Ahh yes, a good healthy breath brings in nice oxygen, a healthy letting go from the ol' colon, just as healthy!

Fall classes taught by myself and my certified instructors are being hosted by the Center For Integrated Medicine at the Outpatient Clinic on Zollinger Road in Columbus.

“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.”
