About Jaime

Sometimes in life there are events that we can honestly say changed everything.  Discovering Qigong was one such event in Jaime’s life.  It was a fortunate turn that altered the course of her life and one for which she is truly grateful.  Qigong is not only a large part of her life, more accurately it is fully integrated into the tapestry of her daily living, and she wouldn’t have it any other way.  She is passionate about sharing her knowledge and experience with all those who are attracted to Qigong – this ancient art that cultivates improved physical health, and a more harmonious experience of daily life, rooted in over-all mental/emotional and spiritual well-being.

She is a Holden Qigong Certified Teacher and has completed Holden Qigong training in Five Elements, Three Treasures, Healing Sounds, Microcosmic Orbit, Tao Yin, Buddha Palm, Iron Shirt, Five Animal Frolics and more.  She has her Holden Qigong Tier 1 teaching credentials and is currently in progress in her advanced studies for Tier 2 Certification.

She is also a certified teacher of Zhan Zhuang (Standing Qigong) and Ba Duan Jin (Eight Pieces of the Silk Brocade) by her Laoshi, Dr. Michael T. Caley, of Mountain Water Qigong, Edmonton, Alberta.

Jaime’s teaching style is amiable and warm.  She utilizes exceptional communication skills to guide her students whilst combining explanation, instruction and demonstration simultaneously.  She uses descriptive and clear language and provides additional instructions and/or more precise details as needed.  She is able to cater classes to the needs of the attendees and creates a safe and supportive learning environment for everyone.

About Golden Qigong

“Transforming our World One Qigong Class at a Time”

Golden Qigong Dandelion Transformation

Golden Qigong is so named to give expression to the extraordinary value and importance of Qigong to humanity.

Culturally we have a very positive association to gold and even a desire to acquire it.  It is thought of as precious and valuable.  It is in our language, we have the Golden Ratio, the Gold Standard, Gold Records, the Golden Age, and the Golden Rule.  Question:  “How are you?”  Answer:  “I am golden”.  Thus, we always see an association of gold and golden with connotations of powerful excellence and achievement, and with the Golden Rule, we have behaviour to aspire to.  Additionally, many cultures associate golden light with the Divine.   In the context of visualization during Qigong Practices, the colour of golden light is associated with vibrancy, health and healing.

Correspondingly the profound value of Qigong practice to humanity is in many ways unrivalled.  It is so effective, safe, gentle and easily modified as needs be, and anyone can do it, even those who are unwell to the point of being bedridden.

The health benefits are well-researched and documented.  Benefits such as, improved health, improved bone density, improved balance including prevention of falls, cardiopulmonary health (heart and lung), immune system function, joint health, circulation, muscular strength, overall improved quality of life, reduced stress, anxiety, depression, and chronic fatigue, improved memory and clarity of thought, better digestion, spinal health, and much more.

My mission is simple, teach Qigong so that human beings of all ages can have the opportunity to experience for themselves a life enhanced and enriched by the many rewards and benefits of the practices.  To feel better in your physical body, to experience a state of calmness, ease, contentment optimism and well-being mentally emotionally and spiritually.  That this state of being can be cultivated by learning and practicing Qigong in its elegant simplicity is the inspiration for my mission.
