Lauri McKean

About The Teacher

At the age of 21, Lauri McKean inadvertently stumbled into a Tai Chi and Qigong class – not realizing that this “accident” would set the primary trajectory in her life’s unfolding.  During the almost three decades of practicing these Chinese energetic arts, she has taught thousands of students and become a Chinese Medicine Practitioner. Like her primary teacher and mentor, Master Shanti, she is passionate about helping people grasp how the profound principles of these arts are applicable to all of life’s activities.  To this end, she developed the Power of Yin Method to assist women entrepreneurs and leaders create success within a new model based in Yin qualities.  For more information,
