Mimi is an author and teacher of qigong, mindfulness, and internal martial arts (6th generation Baguazhang). She champions a balance of playfulness and precision, and never underestimates how mindful movement and meditation can help people meet the messy, complicated job of being human with greater compassion and ease. A long-time dharma student of Sangha Live’s founding teacher, Martin Aylward, she also co-leads retreats with him at the Moulin de Chaves.
Originally from Tucson, Arizona, Mimi lived in Beijing, China for 14 years before moving to the UK. She now lives outside Oxford with her husband and their dog, three cats, 6 chickens and 60,000 bees. A library of her online qigong videos are accessible through Yogaandfitness.tv, YouTube and Vimeo, and her two books, Qigong and the Tai Chi Axis and Xiu Yang, are available via Orion Spring.
