WHAT GOT YOU INTERESTED IN TAI CHI:
It was suggested to me that it might be a great thing for me to do. I knew someone whose opinion I value and treasure who studied Tai Chi. He spoke so highly about TC that I called immediately.
WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED FROM TAI CHI:
It calms me and gives me energy at the same time. It provides me with a sense of inner power and knowingness. It gives me strength and confidence and makes me very happy!!!!!!
WHAT KEEPS YOU INVOLVED IN TAI CHI:
The way I feel when I am there and the after effects are so wonderful I can’t imagine my life without it!!! TC is a wonderful energy to be around as are all the other students. When you’re there it’s an infectious feeling of kindness, knowledge and smiles from all involved.
WHY WOULD YOU RECOMMEND TAI CHI TO OTHERS:
For the health benefits the peace of mind and the amazing energy you feel while doing it. The way you feel connected within yourself and how wonderfully that feeling carries on afterwards!!
EXPERIENCE IN FITNESS TAI CHI:
I love it. I am always happy the day of class.
I feel stronger healthier and more at peace!!!
COMMENTS OF THE CLASSES:
TC is an amazing teacher. His classes show and teach you not only how to do the form but he demonstrates and analyses applications so you know why you are doing every move you are making. You are not just moving around you understand how it is used in form and also the application used for defending yourself and how that can shift and alter depending on the circumstance.
You are doing Tai Chi with energy focus and intent.
TC also realizes and pays attention to each person’s knowledge and physical strengths and teaches accordingly. If someone has physical injuries that prevent them from doing a certain movement TC will come up with an alternate way to achieve the same outcome.
He also finds a way to relate to you on a personal level to help you understand with a base that you resonate with.
For the analytical minded he connects to them with logic. For others he might use cartoons, animals whatever they might connect to. I am particularly fond of the groovy elephant and looping. TC always makes his teachings constructive, beneficial and enlightening with a healthy dose of fun thrown in to make you enjoy everything you are learning.
He always teaches with integrity patience and a smile!!
I also owe a big thank-you to the other students. They are so kind and giving and patient with me!! I am very new to all this and they go out of there way to help me even staying after class to guide me through parts I don’t fully understand yet. I am very appreciative!!
TC has a wonderful spirit and it transcends to all his students as well!!!
ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE US TO KNOW:
I just want to say a little something about TC and his generous heart!!
I had only been taking Tai Chi for about a month when an old ballet injury flared up so TC told me to stop and rest it for a while till I was better. It was during this next month when I wasn’t even in class that I got sick. I went to 5 doctors and none of them could figure out what was wrong with me. TC called to see how I was and said he knew an acupuncturist that might be able to help. He barely knew me and yet this wonderful kind man drove me two days in a row to make sure I got help.
The acupuncturist healed me…………..but it was really TC’s caring that did!!!!!
This generosity and kindness comes through in him as a person and in his amazing way as a teacher!!!!
