** My approach to sharing Tai Chi as a movement art emphasizes both the health benefits which are naturally inherent in Tai Chi practice and the concomitant benefits of postural alignment practices which not only make Tai Chi more enjoyable, but are also capable of clearing long-held blockages, enabling one to live a more pain-free, active life.  The posture alignment exercises which are shared in class are based upon the specific practices and principles of The Egoscue Method. **

Tai Chi
classes emphasize the fundamental principles underlying the beauty and grace of the Classical Yang Style Tai Chi Long Form.  Students are guided through the movements of the Tai Chi "set" which builds strength, flexibility and balance while improving circulation and deepening relaxation. Further practice explores the details and depth of the more advanced movements with an increasing focus on mind-body-breath coordination. 


Qigong for Health


Basic qigong practices for reducing toxic stress, clearing energy blockages, improving mental clarity and enhancing physical vitality.  These simple exercises are easy to learn and may be done standing or sitting, depending upon each person’s physical capabilities.  Relaxation is a key component to practice which leads to the coordination of smooth movement, calm breathing and peace of mind.  Qigong holds the potential of a life-long health and healing foundation, which may be practiced with benefit at the most basic to the more advanced levels.

Qigong (pronounced "chee-goong") describes a Chinese Exercise system with a 5,000 year history that focuses on cultivating and attracting "Qi" or "Life-Force" energies. The primary goals are to eliminate excess tension, clear energy blockages, and purge toxic emotions from within the body's tissues.  Additional benefits include strengthening and balancing the internal organs and bio-electrical energy of the body.

The movements are gentle, slow, smooth, and elegant.

There is tension and relaxation, movement and stillness,

together with harmony of mind, breath and body.
