My life has been an amazing, fully guided journey from start to finish. God has placed all the right people in my life at the exact right time for my destiny to unfold. This doesn’t mean that everything has been smooth sailing, but everything that was to happen for my life to unfold as it has, has happened. Nothing was ever done to me, but rather for me.
My education as an occupational therapist gave me the awareness of how the body and the mind work and what happens with injury and illness. This was a perfect start to learning about the physical body and how to remedy cumulative and physical traumas.
John F. Barnes Myofascial Release taught me to feel. I was so unaware of my body before myofascial release. I relied on others to tell me what was happening. MFR flipped that around and challenged me to look inside for the answers, not outside. MFR is brings awareness to holding a bracing patters and then changes that tissue memory, but there was still more to come.
My study of A Course in Miracles transitioned me to a deeper, more meaningful, spiritual way of living. It comes down to this, God is in everything, including me. With God as my source, there's nothing that can't be done. Everything else is just added blessing that I am grateful for, but authentic happiness must come from inside, not outside. That is my gift to you, that I may work with God as your guide to dissipate your pain and illness so you may experience heaven here on earth, inside of you.

Shirley Forrest- Full Profile
Shirley has been a physical therapist since 1979 with her practice emphasis on adult and elder care in a variety of settings. She has met many interesting and inspiring people in the course of that work and is grateful for all the multitude of experiences.
One of her course studies in 1994 included a course in teaching a specialized exercise program to people with rheumatoid arthritis - the ROM
Dance. It was at this course in Madison, Wisconsin, with Tricia Yu, that she was first introduced to Tai Chi. It was a life-changing moment. She studied Tai Chi on her own as her busy life allowed through reading and video practice, but it wasn’t until 2005 that she was able to begin consistently taking weekly classes in Yellow Springs, Ohio, with Brad Fraley learning the Yang Style Short Form.
She also was introduced at that time to Qigong and began learning the Qigong wellness movements. Shirley was 49 at that time and almost an “empty nester” and considered these classes a “gift from me to me”. Learning Tai Chi and Qigong has been such a gift! Her fellow students have been so enjoyable to know. Her teacher, Brad Fraley, has since moved out of state but encouraged Shirley to begin teaching before he left. A few opportunities offered themselves in the places she was working as a physical therapist. Then in 2014, she began teaching Tai Chi and Qigong in varied wellness center settings.
She continues to experience Tai Chi and Qigong as gifts that keep on giving insights on living well in our world, help with physical well-being, and
enjoyable people to teach and journey within this human experience.
Joy, laughter, and acceptance of your own and others' physical challenges, and learning the good path to living well is the atmosphere of her classes in both Tai Chi and Qigong.
