I was intrigued to start an internal practice because I heard about the benefits of having a meditative practice, but I knew I needed something physical as well. Little did I know, that even in a year so much could change within my body and my relationship to my holding patterns. After class I feel magical. As if my body is a rag, I feel like I have just wrung out all the gunk. Throughout my day I can start to sense when I am tensing my shoulders - I can’t maybe control what stressors are making me tense, but I now have the ability to relax my muscles, creating less aches and pains later. I finally feel like I understand how to breath and my breathing is so much deeper. I have so far to go in this life long practice, but I am truly grateful for all I have discovered thus far.
The way they present the material allows us to focus on the movements and our breath which I find carries over to the rest of my day. They make it incredibly easy to understand. I highly recommend this to any company looking to institute a wellness program or even just a workshop.
When I started taking class with Root of Movement I was in constant pain from an old ankle injury that kept getting re-injured. It had been treated by acupuncturists as well as Western doctors, but the relief was only temporary. It has now been six months since I started taking class and I rarely think about that injury. I am almost never in pain. Beyond that, Qi Gong and Ba Gua have released tension that I didn’t know was there before. I highly recommend these classes!
I started training with Root of Movement several years ago without any prior knowledge about the internal arts or what they had to offer. Since then, every training session has been a rewarding experience that’s carried over to the rest of my day.
I have been taking classes with Root of Movement for about 2 years. As a person with significant health issues, I felt the need for a form of exercise that would help me keep in touch with my body and help to compensate for its limitations. Jonathan has been a sensitive and knowledgeable teacher. His enthusiasm for qigong and the internal arts is contagious. I always feel more centered and balanced when our sessions are over. I highly recommend this!
