CORPORATE STRESS MANAGEMENT CONSULTING
by Bill Douglas and SMARTaichi
Thank you so much for coming to Quintiles today... the glowing comments I have rec'd should make you feel great!!
I'm not sure the last time I was involved in a project that received this much positive feedback so fast.
Molly, Quintiles, Inc.
"I can't believe the difference a one hour
presentation class could make."
"I thought the Tai Chi class today was very relaxing and refreshing. My whole body felt light and tingly afterwards, and my mind got a much needed break from the fast-paced environment at work. This is exactly what a busy organization like Quintiles needs to keep their employees healthy in mind, body, and spirit.
I think it would be WONDERUL if Bill could teach weekly classes at Quintiles. I'll definitely be there!"
"I really enjoyed today's Tai Chi/Qigong class. I came to class with a headache that had lasted a couple of days. After class the headache was gone and I felt relaxed and refreshed."
"I wanted to thank you for arranging for Bill Douglas to present the Stress Relief workshop using Tai Chi & Qigong. I can't believe the difference a one hour presentation class could make. I noticed I actually felt lighter when I was walking and it felt like I could actually feel my joints moving.
I know this sounds strange but since I've had my hip and knee problems I never feel my joints moving when I walk. I also noticed I could feel my shoulders start to tense up because they've been in that position for so long but at least now I was aware of it and could let them relax again.
I was able to breathe in more deeply than I have been able to do for months because of my allergy induced asthma. I swear during the breathing exercises I could actually feel my lungs open up and I feel more alert and not as tired as I was starting the day."
"As a real amateur, I really enjoyed learning about Tai Chi & Qigong. I can't wait to share this with my family.
I also appreciated Bill's sense of humor during his presentation. Bill's relaxed approach was very welcomed!"
"Thank you for coordinating and setting up that class for us today. I really enjoyed it ... I thought Bill was an effective instructor so I would definitely be interested in taking a class from him again."
"Molly, I really enjoyed the brief introduction into Tai Chi & Qigong. It was my first exposure to this and I enjoyed it a lot. I already believe in mediation and I already listen to a CD a night in bed. I have no knowledge of the breathing techniques and really felt this short exposure made a difference. If a class could be held during our daytime hours instead of afterhours I would be inclined to participate. At $5 a class it would be affordable for me. I will look forward to any information on a class here. Thank you for taking the time to make these arrangements today."
"It was a great class! Please let me know if we will be having a class here at Quintiles because I definitely want to sign up. I like the idea of a lunch class because I can see going back to work energized and able to work more efficiently. Any day but Monday would work for me."
"I thought it was great to relax & do the breathing exercises. I think it is something that would definitely help me. I am already one of these “all natural” people and I think if I focused & practiced on it more; it could be very beneficial for me."
"I appreciate Quintiles bringing in Alternative health choices. I am a big fan and follower of complementary practices. I would take advantage of the Tai Chi classes if they were brought here. Thank you!"

World's Top Tai Chi Experts LOVE Bill Douglas's Best-Selling Tai Chi & Qigong Book!
The Complete Idiot's Guide to T'ai Chi & QiGong (Penguin/Alpha, New York, 4th edition)
by Bill Douglas, Kansas City Tai Chi teacher
Published worldwide in several languages
"Sometimes Chinese culture can be difficult to explain. Sifu Bill Douglas successfully uses American culture to explain the art of T'ai Chi Chuan. He simplifies difficult concepts, making them easier to understand. This book takes the best parts of T'ai Chi and makes them understandable [to Westerners] without requiring a grounding in Chinese culture and history."
Sifu Yijiao Hong, USA All-Tai Chi Grand Champion and USA Team member; Certified International Coach and Judge, International Wushu Federation
"Douglas has achieved for QiGong what Apple did for the computer. He's brought it to the people … great place to start for beginners. … Teachers may also find this an excellent manual 'on how to explain these concepts to the general public…'"
R. Poccia, Qigong instructor, Beyond Anonymous, San Francisco
"Visionary! If you only buy one book on T'ai Chi, then this is the book. This book is all you ever needed to know to change your life. I have taught T'ai Chi for several decades myself, yet I have now read Bill's book from cover to cover seven times, and still get something new from it each time."
