Like a favorite Haiku that deepens each time you visit. The beauty of life unfolding, to make it possible to have contact with a true teacher. Grateful for Rose’s awareness and dedication to Qigong and the brilliance of sharing these online times has been life enriching in all ways. Rose gently and powerfully leads, speaks, teaches and embodies the practice while honoring the lineage. My time with Rose as my Qigong teacher has been grounding and spiritually uplifting. Grateful. ~ Janet Marie
My deep gratitude for your teaching is so huge, thank you just doesn’t seem like a big enough phrase. The healing you are providing in my life through these classes is life changing and you are a truly gifted teacher. My practice is growing by leaps and bounds. Because you have already put in the time to deeply developed your own dedicated practice for so many years, here in this moment you stand ready to bring to us on a silver platter something that is just the healing we need now. Being able to access your classes on line is just such a huge, huge, gift. ~Virginia Maxam
Thank you for everything, Rose. There are many gifts during this time of pause, but I think getting so much study with you and deepening my practice as a result is perhaps the greatest joy. I practice daily on my own. More regular study with you has helped me so much to learn about sequencing, among much else. You are such an inspiration. Thank you for shining your light, Rose. I truly feel blessed to have found you as my teacher and cannot conceive of how my life will unfold with this practice as my foundation (Destiny Bridge!) ~ Margaret McNeal
Your teaching in words, warmth, humor, knowledge – and body – so strong, moving with smooth flow are so beneficial and timely for me and I know so many others , especially now. ~ Karen Johnson
It is remarkable to me, the sustained and centered energy that I have experienced each day that I have been able to practice! ~ Sally
You are priceless in what you offer… I gain so much from your depth of understanding and presentation and embodiment. ~ Carol
I feel a solid connection to you as you teach online. You feel personal, with me and with the group. Your self awareness and knowledge of qigong is transmitted thru your voice pacing, volume and how you explain the movements. ~ Judy
I want to express my appreciation for this practice and your generosity in offering it. It is such a blessing in my life to awaken the curiosity in my body and spirit. Your teaching is so gentle and clear. ~ Anonymous
As I have practiced these last weeks I have begun to feel the experience of groundedness, being strong in the yin and expression coming from there. I am seeing myself also have a more clear voice and boundaries in my relationship with my partner, and it feels so healthy. ~ Ingrid
It has been such a pleasure to practice qigong with you. Thank you for your generous offerings of classes. I am enjoying being in the river of these forms again… my body and mind and soul all enjoying. I appreciate your teaching style, and your own obvious personal practice which informs it. Thank you for your immersion and your dedication. ~ Susan M.
I’m so grateful to all my fabulous teachers, yourself included, who are sharing their skills with the world right now. Personally, I’m very grateful for the reminder to chillax, which qigong sends through my system. Thank you so much for your generosity and knowledge sharing!! You truly are a master of your craft! ~
Thank you Rose for sharing your energy and spirit with us.
Your descriptions are very appreciated! Healing qigong is wonderful. ~ Carol Basch
You have an easy style, you make things clear and simple, and I love the descriptions that are so easy to grasp. You obviously love what you do, and that makes all the difference. Thank you so much for your time and effort and dedication to this wonderful practice. You’re an inspiration! ~ Jill Anderson
Thank you, Rose! This morning practice has really been a gift for me in many ways. I also wanted to comment what a calm and professional presence you have. There have been days, especially days when the technology is not cooperating, that the expectations and energy of we participants feels chaotic and heavy and you navigate it with aplomb and grace. ~ Sidra Quinn
Thanks for your help with transitions and form. I’m really glad I did the private session with you – it helped me to integrate what we learned at the workshop. ~ Patty Raedy
Rose Allen is an extraordinary Qigong teacher. In fact, she is more than a teacher – an inspiration, a source of wisdom and a tireless guide to the possibilities within all of us.
~ Lissa Reidel
I have studied with Zhenzan Dao for several years. The very first class I attended Rose was there. She was the first to move from her home in Portland to follow Zhenzan to Santa Fe. Her commitment to the practice is so strong. Rose also established a practice house and provided lodging for people from out of town when they came to study. We had a wonderful practice space there where Rose would lead us in practice. I tell everyone that Rose is my #2 teacher. She makes everything clear and welcomes all our questions, no matter what level. Rose is one of the most impeccable people I know. Anyone attending one of her classes is fortunate indeed. ~ Anita Neumann
Her demeanor, sensitivity, sincerity and commitment to qigong and teaching are some of the qualities I have admired in Rose as we have practiced together for several years. ~ Kirtan
Rose Allen’s Qigong classes and workshops are integral to the menu of healing arts offered at The Menla Center. They go beyond just the Qigong Forms to include practical understanding about the vital connection between our bodies and the earth’s seasons, and what it takes to simply live in balance. Enthusiastic about continually growing her own personal practice of Qigong, Rose’s students reap the benefits of her enthusiasm, as well as her extensive knowledge and experience. She makes the information understandable, applicable, and fun. We love having Rose as part of The Menla Family! ~ Sandy Szabat & David McDonald, Owners – The Menla Center for the Healing Arts in Santa Fe, NM
