About BRANA's Founder

{{{Qigong, Yoga, Martial Arts, Dance... it's all just moving energy with different intentions}}}

                                                                ~Michael Lang~





During the Covid-19 quarantine, Michael suddenly found himself with unexpected time on his hands.  Michael used this time to combine the efforts of his performing arts world with the world of his healing arts. By combining the disciplines of Dance, Kali Stick Stretches/Massage, Body & Physio-ball Drumming, Meridian Tapping, the healing vibrational sounds of Yoga/Taoist Chanting, and Pranayama/Taoist Breathwork, he developed BRANA.  This fun and energized health & wellness experience utilizes the full benefits of two of the most important, yet often overlooked, aspects of health ~ BReath & prANA (life force energy aka Qi or Ki). 


BRANA is NOT, however, solely an individual health & fitness regimen!  BRANA is designed to be a unified global healing movement.  Michael believes that if we are going to heal completely, we have to start with ourselves, then move THAT energy to the community tribe and eventually the planet at large.  According to Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine principles, we are a microcosm of the macrocosm. What we do to ourselves, we do to the planet; and what we do to our planet, we do to ourselves.  Micahel's impetus and vision are that BRANA will become a worldwide human and planetary venture that will return us to a more primitive and mindful way of living with health, love, compassion, and empathy for all as our main collective goal!
