The slender, red-haired German has facial wrinkles indicating her age but she's beautiful, radiating inner charm. She has the grace of a wise woman, but childlike fun glitters in her turquoise eyes.Tao, Kellenberger says, has transformed her, both physically and mentally, as it has her husband Walter, also an instructor at Tao Garden . "My course is so uplifting," she says, "you really feel that it's a treasure to be a woman." She doesn't conduct the classes as a how -to workshop, but creates a warm and caring atmosphere in which the .students can let down their defences and receive instruction in a relaxed, spiritual mood.
One student began menstruating again after a long time without, Kellenberger says, adding that regular practitioners find their monthly periods shortened by a few days, with less - or no - discomfort from cramps and sickness.
The practice, she says, balances and heals hormonal dysfunction in women, and may also be beneficial in treating hormone-related diseases like breast and uterus cancer. Celibates, Kellenberger notes, probably need the practice more than sexually active women, in order to control their sexual energy.
The real power of women, practitioners believe, is not something to be exerted over men but over themselves. In today's stressful world, women need to respect their sexuality more than ever. They neither have to run after, nor away from men, and power Struggles with men are unnecessary.
The best way for women to deal with men is to be genuinely happy with themselves and their health.
