I really enjoy Balance Minder & Time Out Tai Chi by Leanne Simpson. Why? Because Leanne personally connects positively with each person present and she reminds everyone to move at a safe level. Tai Chi helps me with Chronic Complex Pain Management and it also Calms my Mind and I feel Peace within my body Physically and Mentally. Socially it gives me an opportunity to build healthy relationships with Nice People.

I would have been around 30 when I received a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia that finally explained many of the chronic pain symptoms I’d been experiencing throughout my life.
As a teen, I had chronic neck pain and ongoing pain throughout my entire body after having my first child. It got to the point that I was unable to play with my children, housework became near impossible and doctors continued to tell me to go home and just deal with the pain. It wasn’t until I fell down in the street one day, and a number of people walked past me and laughed, that I realised I needed to find some answers and take my health into my own hands.
I made a plan to not let my pain hold me back and attended a networking event where I sat beside a lady who handed me a flyer on Tai Chi. I took it home and stuck it to the fridge where it stayed for 6 months. It wasn’t until my daughter began experiencing anxiety that I noticed the flyer and decided we should give it a go together. From the first class I noticed not only physical changes, but also changes in my mental wellbeing. From then, Tai Chi became a regular part of my routine and even my daughter mentioned how much calmer I was as a mother.
These days, I’ve been practicing and teaching Tai Chi for 12 years and have grown a successful business as a Fitness Educator and Tai Chi instructor. I focus on supporting people with chronic pain and other ailments to relax their mind, calm their body and stop their pain from holding them back from living a fulfilling life. I’ve seen clients who have struggled to walk long distances, balance themselves, neurological issues, mental health concerns and more…turn their life around and have amazing results like travelling interstate, go bushwalking again, leave the house and do tasks with ease that previously caused anxiety. I was recently a finalist for the Australia Fitness 2020 Community Activation Awards for my contribution to sharing Tai Chi throughout Australia. When I’m not practicing Tai Chi, you’ll find me out fishing, 4wd driving, camping and out in the vegie garden living a life that I truly enjoy.
