Justin's training has completely transformed me physically and mentally and I find my eating habits are changing to match my workouts.

by Mike

"Half-way through the first session I began to feel more calm and centered. I have more mobility and flexibility in my other workouts and am able to practice some of the skills at home. My son (age 14) has enjoyed several sessions and is always more agreeable afterwards. We can't thank Justin enough."

Qi Gong with Justin has helped me to strengthen and support my physical self as well as my emotional self. It provides me with a tool to tether my thoughts so that I can be present in the moment. The movement provides an opportunity to flow smoothly and freely without pain. The combination is beautiful and fulfilling.
