Lauri had a spontaneous healing from 30 years of arthritis after attending Dr. Sun’s Level 1 seminar and practicing the exercises. Lauri quit everything she was doing to study Yi Ren Qigong to understand the body’s abilities. Six months later, Lauri was diagnosed with Lupus. Dr. Sun gave an energy boost and specific qigong protocol to better balance the body’s energy and lupus did not recur. After these profound healing experiences, Lauri became a certified Yi Ren Qigong instructor to help others learn about the body’s brilliance. Currently, she instructs in Bothell WA, assists in seminars, mentors instructors, co-chairs IQ&IM’s education committee, and serves as board vice-president. She has been involved with several research studies looking at the effect of Yi Ren Qigong on chronic back pain and type 2 diabetes. With a background in movement, Lauri finds the integration of authentic Qi allows for anti-aging, expression of inherent gifts and true self.
