I practice daily! This is a feat in of itself. Half of the population in Canada is not active enough for health. In addition to my Qigong practice I swim, walk, hike, inline skate, and cycle.
I am passionate about movement and believe movement is medicine, taken daily you can ward off most ailments including aging.
I am a fitness and physical activity specialist with 20+ years of experience. I have many certifications including: aquafitness (instructor, trainer, therapist), Bone fit certified, Watsu 1,11,111, Ahi chi, Tai chi, Yoga, Medical Qigong & Qigong teacher training.
I am a health promotion specialist who worked in public health promoting physical activity and chronic disease prevention. I also coordinated the Mississauga Halton Fall Prevention Initiative and promoted best practices in fall prevention to everyone who works with older adults. I ended my career in the healthcare sector after spending 18 months with Osteoporosis Canada. Where I encouraged health care professionals to implement best practices in Osteoporosis diagnosis and treatment. So, I know chronic illness, if I don’t know, I am good at finding out causes, treatment and best practices. In addition, I am very good at finding best practice research and summarizing it for the general public. I have delved into many alternative therapies and find many of them very useful.
I am a health professional gone ROGUE! Why rogue? Because I believe in alternative medicine. I believe movement is medicine. I am sick of how long it takes to get anything done in health care. I cannot be a change agent in that environment anymore. I am content sharing my love of movement and promoting one of my favourite movement medicines – Qigong to all who are interested.
I am a health promotion specialist (BSc. Health Education) with 20 years of health promotion and fitness experience. My love of movement and desire to stay healthy has led me to study and practice qigong. I am a Medical Qigong practitioner (MQP) and a qigong teacher. My intent is help people to live a long and healthy life.
