very surprised to find out how much work this actually is. I thought the
whole process of doing Yi Chuan would be relaxing. But it's not. I guess
you get nowhere without hard work! And I do get to a very, very deep relaxation
during the process. It is a harmony of body/mind/spirit. I'm getting much
stronger and much more peaceful. That is why I continue this hard work."

"After practising Yi Chuan for 1and 1/2 years my balance is much
better. I am sleeping much better. I experience a warmth in my body I
have never experienced before. I am continuing because I believe that
it is doing something to me, something enormous. It' s giving new dimentions
and new direction to life."

"More energy, more breath, more strength, more joy! Practising Yi
Chuan for some months now, it is transforming my life, not only my body!"
male, 56 years old
"The first time in the Yi Chuan class I was thinking that this was
the first day of my new life. Doing Yi Chuan in the group reminded me
about something that was forgotten in the stress and anxiety during illness.
Quietness together with others, beautiful movements making me experience
my body in a whole new way again, lighter, more powerful. It gave me a
lot of hope for the future. After a while I also came to experience the
hard work it is to be consistent with the training at home as well. But
when I manage to do it regularly, it makes a difference in my life. Pain
in my lower back and hips is very much relieved, and I am getting much
more rooted. Breath is deeper, and I am becoming more peaceful. Astma
is relieved, and so is anxiety."
female, 47 years old
"I was very sceptical when I came to the Yi Chuan class the first
time, but I experienced something very strong that made me continue. I
feel a very deep connectedness while doing it; to the ground, in my body,
body and soul. I am finding to a strength and wholeness in me I did not
know before. Doing the training for a year now, it has brought to my life
something very valuable because I am much more present and grounded in
my work and being with the people around me. This has at times been difficult
before because I have been very distressful after an accident many years
