For 1 ½ years, on arriving Julia believed she could walk but NOT run, even though she wanted
to. Thanks to the Chi, daily practice and support, Julia achieved running!  


“The afternoon class at the river was so magical, touching and emotional for me. I would never expect that a tree could make me cry. But the nature and its energy were so present. I think I never felt the Chi so clear in me. When we were sitting at the river I could really feel it was flooding through me. As if somebody had pushed a button of a jacuzzi in my body. It was buzzing!”
