Energize Your Day

This is a great wellness program for a variety of audiences - as a conference break-out session, corporate "lunch-and-learn" seminar or private group meeting.

For those who sit at a computer for hours at a time and for those who are on their feet all day, several de-stressing, healing and re-energizing applications are taught. This program incorporates movements from martial arts, Yoga, Qigong and Polarity Therapy as well as self-massage, acupressure and eye care. Seminar includes handouts of the exercises covered. Appropriate for large and small groups. (A great wellness program for a variety of audiences – as a conference break-out session, corporate “lunch-and-learn” seminar or private group meeting.)

Stretch, De-stress and More

Focused on helping participants reduce stress and eliminate or minimize minor aches and pains, this program is most effective as a mini-series of wellness classes.

Headaches? Back Pain? Tight Muscles? Achy joints? Learn how to eliminate or minimize them through this series of classes. Sessions focus on participants’ health concerns and incorporate techniques to heal headaches, backaches, neck and shoulder pain; stretching and movements to reduce stiffness and increase joint mobility; self-massage and acupressure points to maintain health; and Polarity Therapy, Yoga postures and Qigong breathing to improve overall vitality. (Ideal as a mini-series of wellness classes.)

Qigong... Working with Your Vital Energy

Learn to awaken your qi and direct it to improve the quality of your life. Full seminar requires a two-hour time frame; a shorter version is available.

Qigong (pronounced “chee-gung”) is a Chinese healing art and science that works with your vital energy (qi) to benefit body, mind and spirit. This Qigong seminar focuses on breathing exercises that build and circulate qi. Through regular practice, you can learn to deal effectively with stress, keep your body relaxed and supple, and improve the quality and flow of your internal energy. (Full seminar requires a two-hour time frame; a shorter version is available.)

Expanding Your Senses

A great team-building program, participants are challenged to stretch their boundaries. Whether out in nature or in an urban environment, a variety of programs are available.

Refresh your spirit and stretch your boundaries in nature’s environment. Questions asked are “Who are you – now?” “What is your story?” “Are you where you want to be, doing what you want to be doing?” Originally designed as a weekend retreat in the Allegheny National Forest, this program can be tailored to an urban environment and shorter time frames. (Various programs are available, depending on your group’s goals.)

The Dragons Within

Participants are encouraged to look within, to name and own their own "stuff," and to become more mindful of the words they use. Various programs are available.

Can you name your "dragons"? Past hurts, fears, anger, abuse? Rage, frustration, resentment? Bad relationships? Addiction? Negativity? How are they affecting your professional and personal life? Once we identify, name and tame our dragons they become our allies and help us move to a place of greater harmony. In this session we address principles of wellness and learn how the energy of our words feeds our dragons. (Various programs are available.)

Structured for Business


Whether in a full-conference presentation or a breakout session, Nancy Gardner moves audiences to action. Literally! Conference participants stretch, shake, breathe and laugh, which in turn impacts their learning ability and retention.

Motivational Workshops

Our "dragons" (like frustration, resentment, fear) and our words (negative, cutting, profane) keep us from achieving our highest potential. Nancy's team-building programs focus on how to live more authentically and communicate more effectively, creating greater harmony in the workplace.

Wellness Classes

U.S. businesses lose billions of dollars every year because of the reduced performance of on-the-job workers experiencing headaches, back pain, arthritis and other musculoskeletal pain. Gardner teaches self-care techniques to relieve or prevent these common pain conditions that easily can be incorporated into the workday.

Chair Massage

To help your employees manage crunch-time deadlines or to recognize them for a job well done; as customer appreciation or to attract prospects to your trade-show booth, NG Energy's professional chair massage is always appreciated.

Chair Massage Details

Massage is an effective treatment for reducing stress, muscle tension and pain. It also can increase circulation and boost immune system functions and resistance to illness. Massage therapy also has been shown to improve creative thinking.

Chair massage can provide a boost during major work deadlines, company gatherings or even tradeshows. It is a great way to show your gratitude and promote loyalty with employees and customers alike. (Contact Nancy for rates and availability.)
