Lili's Philosophy:
The body is a gateway to awareness and higher consciousness. Since our body is our teacher and guide in life, awakening to your inner body guidance is the major focus of her work. Knowing and paying attention to the information your body transfers to the mind will help you experience greater awareness in all areas of your life. There is no disconnection between your body and your mind. It is all one, and it is in the integration and awareness of the two that brings healing – being whole.
Tai Chi, the ancient art of relaxation and meditation in movement.
