Stress Reduction and Life Skills for Women with ADD/ADHD
An Eight Week Class in Seattle
What past students have said ....
“This is the most relaxed I’ve been all week!”
If you are a woman (over 18) with ADD/ADHD, you may often feel:
Scattered …Overwhelmed …Always rushing to catch up …Frustrated …Inadequate or guilty … Like you have no right to relax or take care of yourself because there is always so much to do. Or , you could be doing pretty well but would love some time just for yourself to relax and de-stress, learn some ADD friendly strategies to help you feel more organized and get things done, and share ideas and support with other women.
If you can relate to the words above, I encourage you to please contact me about the class: Stress Reduction and Life Skills for Women with ADHD. We meet for eight weeks for an hour and a half each time in N.E. Seattle. Every class will include:
If you are not sure about joining a group, here are five things to know: 1. There will never be more than 6 women in a group. 2. The space we create is friendly, kind, and supportive. 3. You can receive many of the benefits of coaching but at less than half the price. Plus Qigong lessons! 4. You will usually leave feeling better than when you came in. 5. We have a potluck dessert on the last day.
What is Qigong?
Qigong (pronounced chee gung) is a Chinese self-healing art consisting of moving, sitting, or standing meditations. It uses relaxation, inner focus, positive thoughts, visualizations, and sometimes conscious breathing in order to reduce stress and improve mental and physical health. It develops our present moment awareness and ability to concentrate. Qigong is considered a branch of traditional Chinese medicine and there are many different forms of Qigong. It is closely connected to Tai Chi, although it is often quicker to learn. In China, millions of people practice Qigong every day to improve their well-being. It is considered a valid form of medical treatment. Qi or chi means life energy. Gong means practice or cultivate. So in order to reap the rewards of Qigong, we have to practice.
As well as practicing the movements and meditations, we can incorporate Qigong into our daily life by becoming aware of our posture and breathing, relaxing the body, being mindful of what we are doing or thinking in the present moment, and adjusting our thoughts and behaviors to be more positive, healthy, and peaceful. This is a challenge, but even doing a few of those actions can make a big difference to the quality of our lives.
