I have recently transitioned out of the classroom having been a high school Spanish teacher for the academically gifted for the past 33 years. I continue to tutor Spanish to keep myself in the education world. I found my way to Tai Chi in 2013 and have been happily practicing ever since.  I discovered the wonderful benefits of qi gong and became a level 3 instructor in 2019.  I am passionate about moving meditation, living a healthy lifestyle, natural healing and Daoism. In my quest for optimal health and wellness, I truly try to practice what I teach.

Ellen Sichel, community outreach

My signature’s roll-up-our-sleeves, humorous, no-B.S. style brings a sense of ease and support to those I interact with. As someone who has lived with pain, autoimmune disease and caregiving responsibilities I have a unique understanding of the stress of others.

 

Since moving to Sarasota my pain and stress level increased and the addition of two car accidents exacerbated both.  With all my experience in yoga and meditation my issues persisted.  I was fortunate to find the Tai Chi & Qi Gong Healing Institute and began doing Qi Gong. In just a short time, I am feeling improvement both physically and mentally.
