I have been doing Qigong with Nancy on Zoom for several months now and I just love it. She encourages and teaches beautifully. My soul is touched. I feel lost if I don't get some Nancy in my week!!
I have been taking classes with Nancy for over a year. First in person and moving to zoom. Nancy is a master tai chi & qigong teacher. She has a very warm and elegant style of teaching and is extremely committed to each member of our class. Her expertise has been instrumental in helping to enhance my posture and my chronic back pain has been helped enormously She is a gift for practitioners new & old. Bina.

About me

Earlier on, my nursing practice in the hospital setting was dedicated to helping people adjust to life with a chronic illness. Along the way, I discovered for myself that a mindfulness meditation practice helped me live a life of greater balance, connection and ease. With more training I began teaching Jon Kabat-Zinn's curriculum, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). Then, learning about mindful movement, I became certified to teach Integral Qigong and Tai Chi Easy. Now, as a Senior Trainer with the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi, I also teach others how to share Tai Chi in their communities. I weave mindfulness practices into my Qigong and Tai Chi classes and particularly enjoy introducing these health enhancing practices to beginners, to people facing health challenges, and to people beginning to establish a meditation practice. Prior to COVID you could find me teaching in Sarasota churches, hospitals, schools, organizations, and to individuals in their own homes. Now I live in Lisbon, Portugal and my classes are on Zoom.

My Philosophy of Care

I have always been a nurse. At this time in my life I am focused on helping folks develop self-care practices and habits that will help them live long and vital lives.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

From the very first Qigong and Tai Chi class, people describe feeling relaxed--and at the same time more energetic.

My Inspiration

These practices are within everyone's reach. I'd like to facilitate your discovery.

I have taken Nancy's QiGong class for the last several months. She is knowledgeable and very clear in her instructions. Her pace is perfect. I highly recommend her .
I have been taking Nancy's classes for about three years both in person and on Zoom. She is an excellent teacher very warm and caring. she gives you alternative movements to insure that you do not injure yourself and explains the the reason for the movements and what area it helps. I feel much better after taking her class! She is very knowledgeable and has a very calming effect on the class!
I have enjoyed taking the tai chi class during the winter months with Nancy since she first offered them several years ago. She has always had a good sense of each participant’s skills and would adjust her instruction to fit their needs. Her calm and positive demeanor greatly enhanced the whole experience and I feel privileged to have had Nancy as my instructor.
I have been practicing tai chi with Nancy as my teacher for about three years. Nancy is a wonderful teacher. She has a calming, down-to-earth presence that relaxes and challenges you at the same time. She is extremely knowledgeable, personable, and attuned to her students' needs. I have also benefited greatly from her guided meditation sessions.
I have been taking Nancy's TaiChi and her Qigong class for several months. She is very welcoming and personable with clear instructions and demonstrations. It is a joy to take her classes and to work on focus, flexibility, strength and balance.
I have participated in Nancy Saum's classes for over two years. She is a knowledgeable, calm and caring person. I feel healthier, more confident and capable after taking her classes. Anna Feb. 21, 2021
I have taken qigong classes from Nancy Saum for many years. I attend class in the winter when we are in Sarasota. I look forward to the classes because they are so calming and meditative. We have learned about the healing properties of qigong, about accupressure channels, and other information that will help us with the practice. We receive email with details of the various moves we perform in class. I feel confident about practicing qigong on my own at home almost every day. I highly recommend Nancy Saum and am sorry that she will no longer be teaching in Sarasota.
Nancy is able to make me feel comfortable practicing Qi Gong at whatever level I am capable of on a given day. The class experience not only loosens my body and releases tensions but it also brings a meditative peacefullness to my often too-busy mind.
In this culture of pill-popping and doctor hopping, it was so refreshing to work with someone who truly believes in the body's capacity to heal itself, especially someone with Nancy's medical background. I wish we could clone her!
Nancy consistently presents & engages students by guiding them through quintessential Tai Chi and Qigong classes. She is an extraordinary practitioner who communicates with clarity, support, patience, encouragement and a wealth of experience. I've been one of her students since Sept. 2016, continuing through the pandemic via Zoom classes. My life has been transformed, in the most positive ways, by this amazing teacher and the mindfulness skills she has graciously shared.
I love taking QUI GONG & TAI CHI with Nancy! She guides our movements with well explained benefits of the form. She also has a Q & A session after class which is most informative. Over the years of practice with her, my health, balance and immune system has improved .Thank you Nancy, for all you do.
Very accessible tai chi class.
Nancy Saum's Tai Chi lessons have benefited me in so many ways. She is an excellent teacher. Along with actual steps she incorporates the soothing, quieting reasoning and meaning of the various movements. Lessons with Nancy invigorate, calm and heal at the same time.
Nancy is a superb teacher. I took qi gong classes with her for several years. She is very knowledgeable about her practice, and about health and well-being in general. She also has a very calming demeanor. She is constantly learning, and sharing her new knowledge with her participants. I Am so sorry to hear she is moving. I have downloaded some of her audiotapes, and look forward to hearing her gentle voice even when she moves away.
Having experienced a concussion with resultant balance issues I began working with Nancy in her Tai Chi Easy program. I can't say enough about her ability to make everyone comfortable and inclusive at whatever level of understanding. This program was immensely helpful with my balance issue as well as my overall coordination and health. I have nothing but rave reviews for this lady and her classes.
