Start building a habit of mindful movement.

The Taoists say "Moving water never stagnates". The same is true for our life energy.

When we stagnate in our bodies, we stagnate in our energy. When our energy stagnates, so does our mind. When our minds stagnate, our lives stagnate. If you are feeling stuck, this is the perfect course for you. By moving our bodies and centering our minds in the morning, we can set ourselves up for success with abundant energy and a winning mindset every day. If you are struggling with chronic pain, anxiety, depression, or simply a lack of motivation to exercise or meditate consistently, this course will provide you with a fun and convenient way to get back to your best self.

Instructor

Nick Loffree

Nick has been interested in fitness since he was 12 when he began to explore strength training and sports conditioning. At 17, after a few years of heavy drug use and head traumas, Nick wound up hospitalized and medicated for paranoid psychosis. Two years of medication left him with cystic acne, eczema, depression, compromised digestion, and chronic brain fog. Not being one to take "impossible" for an answer, Nick ignored the cynicism of doctors and psychiatrists and forged a path back to health for himself. He explored many different paths of yogic, buddhist, and taoist practices, as well as just about every specialized dietary philosophy available, and slowly uncovered the principles that helped him to heal. For his formal Qigong training, Nick spent 3 years apprenticing with world famous Taoist Arts master Lee Holden, and has since made a name for himself as a Qigong and Taoist Yoga teacher across silicon valley. Nick is an on-site movement teacher at 1440 Multiversity, the mindfulness retreat center of companies like Google and Apple. He also teaches Qigong as PTSD therapy to police, firefighters, and military through the non-profit Resiliency First, and shares Qigong with youth drug offenders and mental health patients at Evolve Treatment Centers.
