Wu Ming Qigong for Women’s Health
Ancient Wisdom for Modern Women
In today’s society, women bear a significant amount of stress. If your life is out of balance, your emotions are likely out of balance; eventually, your body becomes out of balance, as well. To treat any of the body’s conditions, you also have to treat your life.
Are you ready to go deep and discover what needs to change? You have a purpose in this life. Your spirit knows what that purpose is. Practicing Qigong, eating for healing and engaging in creative art activities are proven methods of reducing stress and rebalancing the body’s energy system.
Traditional Chinese Medicine looks beyond the physical world and appreciates the entire web of life that reflects how our bodies really work. It offers an ancient blueprint of your energy body and the means to keep it well. When energy flows freely through the body, health is created and restored. Prevention is the beauty and strong suit of Chinese Medicine.
In this 3-part workshop series, you will learn and practice Taoist Wu Ming Qigong movements that you can do daily to reduce stress and gain vibrant health. These movements are easy, elegant and fun to do. Practicing Qigong builds and balances your strong internal energy system while unlocking your innate ability to heal conditions rooted in high-stress lifestyles.
Women’s health issues are serious, but this workshop brings wisdom, joy, and camaraderie into the healing journey. Qi spelled backwards = iQ? Qigong for Women’s Health is a great way to increase your quotient of intelligence, ideas, intuition, and inspiration.

My husband and I both took the Dragon’s Way® and enjoyed it immensely. We are both mid-seventies in age and we find the exercises enjoyable. We both lost weight, about 10 to 15 pounds each and have maintained what we lost. We’ve done a better job with the fruits and veggies than with the exercises. I am looking forward to taking another class as I need the discipline to help me work on the exercises.Carol E.
I took the Fall 2013 Dragon’s Way class with instructor Paula Graham and thoroughly enjoyed the mix of energy movement practice and discussion of the traditional Chinese medicine principles on which The Dragon’s Way is based. Paula’s knowledge of The Dragon’s Way theory made a complex subject approachable and fun. Her own continuing training experiences with Master Nan Lu provided the class insights into the correct performance of the Qigong movements and The Dragon’s Way program. As I continued to practice the Qigong movements of The Dragon’s Way, I noticed an increasing flexibility in my knee and hip joints (all of which have been surgically replaced due to arthritic wear and tear). For the first time in years, I was able to go up and down stairs foot over foot instead of stopping with both feet on each step. Paula’s personal demeanor speaks for itself as an example of health and well-being, and at the same time, she connects easily with class members and readily relates to their various states of well-being. I appreciated how Paula encouraged us and kept up the interest of our very diverse group. I look forward to taking another class with her.Lynn M
I have just finished a 6 week course of Dragon’s Way. I must say that it was a total life changing experience. It was hard for me to believe that such gentle movements and thinking of food in a different way could make such a drastic difference. I consider myself very knowledgeable about food and eat well, but this course put a different spin on things. Maybe our Western ways aren’t the be all, end all of how we should approach our bodies and how they truly work. I have always sought ways of improving the quality of my life and this course gave me the tools to do that. I will take the knowledge that I gained by taking this course and apply it into my everyday life. I have shared this experience with everyone that I talk to as I feel everyone should be made aware that this kind of program is out there.Cheryl
My mother is almost 86 years old and has had many health challenges since her 50’s. Fortunately, as she has become older she has been more open to my suggestions. Not, however, without several unfortunate medical faux pas.
She struggles today keeping her weight above 90 pounds so I could not approach this as a weight loss program. I told her it was for her glands, and that the exercises were simple. After a month or more of owning Master Lu’s DVD, she finally tried it. Truly, she is addicted now. After a week, I noticed a difference in her energy and vibrancy but she didn’t see it. Now, after about a month, I believe she is convinced and is starting to correlate changes to the program. Yesterday she mentioned that she believes it is helping her to walk better and notices it when she is climbing stairs. I can tell you her voice and energy are more positive and vibrant. I feel like I have my mom back!! Thank you for sharing this wonderful program.Linda
