Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese practice and is sometimes referred to as a moving meditation. It can help with high blood pressure, and is a great way to practice relaxation techniques. Tai Chi helps improve balance and flexibility.

I have been teaching Tai Chi in the Taoist Tai Chi style since 2009, certified in set leading and beginner instruction.

I can teach you two Taoist sequences - the 18 movement as well as the 108 moves. I usually recommend new students learn the 18 moves first, get this memorized and then move into the 108 moves.

Finding what drives you is key to accomplishing your health and fitness goals. With so many programs available today it can be hard to distinguish exactly what will work for you; and I believe this is where a certified Personal Trainer can help.
Rather than assigning you rigorous regiments and strict diets, I work hand in hand as your coach to find the best method for you to meet your unique goals. That may be through food, exercise, time management, health education or a plethora of other approaches.

About Zac

I know from personal experience what it feels like not living your healthiest. Coming from a background plagued with a general lack of regard for physical wellbeing, weighing 275 pounds at the age of 15, I felt like I was constantly struggling; but through a combination of proper nutrition and a de

Zac is an outstanding trainer! He is super knowledgeable not only in exercises and nutrition but also the "how" and "why" behind things. I used to be really lazy to be honest but Zac taught me to enjoy getting out and doing things. He worked with me on my goals to change my diet and took me for long walks in the woods on routes that he knows well. He always encourages me to do more but never pushes me to a point of frustration. Not to mention he's really funny and accepting, never making me feel guilty about my vices, just supporting me to do better. I recommend him to anyone wanting to make changes in their diet, shape or physical activities.

Carolyn has and is exactly what I was looking for in a voice coach. Like me, her interests in the performing arts are broad. I felt both excited and comfortable with her. She is professional and easy to talk to. I can sense strongly that Carolyn is full of love and compassion. I am so excited for the next lesson! Here's to the new horizon and everything in between! :) Thank you Carolyn for reassuring me that my decision to switch careers was a wise decision indeed. Dance forward.

"Amazing! I was fourtionate to take a few lessons with Baruk. His class starts with an intense cardio workout, leading into a boxing group. I've never taken any form of boxing lessons. baruk was extremely patient, and skillful in his ability to teach me the basics right away. The aggression and stress that I relieved in his class was incomparable to any workout I've done. After a very high impact boxing lesson, he led right into an ab session, which was instructed at the pace and ability of each student. I was sore for the entire week after (good sore)! The final part includes a stretching, which leads into a very relaxing meditation. Baruk transforms from high intensity instructor to a very calming and guiding spirit.
If you are considering taking a lesson from Baruk, do not hestitate any longer, you won't be disappointed!!"

"Master Teacher Ron Pfeiffer is a true find if you are looking for exceptionally high-quality of instruction. His depth of knowledge and experience in martial arts makes him a valuable tai chi instructor as he is able to elucidate the finer points of the forms and make your tai chi practical, as well.
His style of teaching translates well to the online medium. He keeps a sharp eye on even minute mistakes while remaining positive and encouraging, breaks down the movements, and is attentive to detail . He also has a sense of humor, which is always a welcome characteristic in a teacher.
Since he is very experienced, he can assess his students very well and knows just what level of instruction to deliver, depending on your needs.
I am enriched and feel I'm moving to a new level after every class with Ron. Very grateful for his instruction and highly recommend!"

"Baruk is a real wise and insightful instructor, he takes his time to understand the student and according to their entry level he customizes his training. I have never had any boxing training and I am only 2 months in and I can already see the progress, he shows tough love but that gets you results. His location is amazing as well you have a beautiful lake as a backdrop so the training feels raw and tribal. He also takes his time at the end with some great breath work and meditation practice. Over all I feel like he's a great teacher, and I look forward to seeing what my full potential is through his training, thanks Baruk!"
