Geoff is the co-founder of The Yellow Door, an acupuncture and mind-body studio in Charlottesville. He has over a decade of experience training in and teaching the art and science of resilience and mindful leadership through his various disciplines.
He created Integral Resilience™ as a system that synthesizes the best practices, tools and techniques from his work as an acupuncturist, meditation teacher, Integral Professional Coach™, wilderness educator, and qi gong instructor to offer a comprehensive but accessible program that can have a profound impact on health and wellbeing.
Geoff is also passionate about embodied leadership and mindful communication skills. He trains facilitators around the country in the Shambhala practice of Social Meditation, which uses circle practices and partner activities to explore authentic communication, mindful listening, and the bravery-vulnerability of really showing up in each moment.
Since 2004, Geoff has also trained extensively in qi gong, primarily through the study and practice of Ba Gua Zhang, as well as Tai Chi, Medical Qi Gong and Tibetan Energy Yoga. He loves to teach Qi Gong as an integral part of a healthy life.
As an acupuncturist and movement specialist, Geoff uses a targeted combination of Chinese and Japanese acupuncture, bodywork, functional breathing re-patterning, integrated postural and movement re-patterning, corrective exercises, nutritional counseling, meditation, and coaching.
