Student Profile: Mas Saiming

Written by her mother, Rachel

Sai started training as a third grader, and watching her in those early days, I knew Poekoelan was a perfect fit. With endless energy, and a knack for following along what was being taught, she quickly developed a strong sense of accomplishment as she mastered some of those early skills. Little did she know that my goal for her was to focus some of that boundless energy and have her develop her attention span through movement. My hunch being that Poekoelan training might help her focus in school. And sending a daughter out into the world who knows how to take care of herself, that seemed like an important gift to give as well.



The One Supplement That Every Portlander Should Take

By Mas Michael Gill

Here in the Pacific Northwest we love to joke (or complain) about the rainy, cloudy weather. It turns out that the reasons behind our feelings about winter are more than just psychological. If you are a Portlander and you don’t supplement with vitamin D, you are virtually guaranteed to be deficient. Vitamin D is used to treat poor immune function, bone loss, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high cholesterol, muscle weakness, obesity, asthma, bronchitis, tooth and gum disease, psoriasis, and many other conditions.
