About the Facilitator: Originally from Austin, Texas, Arlette Moody has extensive training and experience in teaching movement. She studied dance at the University of Texas, where she also began her Pilates training. Once Arlette relocated to the Seattle area, she became a certified Pilates instructor and in 2003 started Studio Bliss, a pilates based home studio. When the pandemic hit the area, Arlette wanted to deepen her connection of movement using Chinese principles and became a student of qigong. First she learned online with virtual workshops and videos, then she was recommended to work with Debbie Leung, founder of Chinese Healing and Movement Arts in Olympia. Arlette has been learning Liangong, which comes from Qigong forms from Debbie Leung since the fall of 2020. Her mission is to help people find a deeper connection to themselves and help instill practices of self care which can be practiced into our maturing years.
