Wow Sergey is really great at this! My daughter just turned 5 and is still practicing her headstands against the wall hours later. Sergey's advice to have her 'help' me practice MY stretching is a double win and making her more willing to do her pushups and splits too. We are really looking forward to the next class already. Thank you so much for all the advice and feeback post class too, Sergey!

Charly is the best!

After giving birth to two children, it is not easy to get back in shape and I honestly think, that it would have not been possible if it weren't for Charly.

She is very sensitive to the health issues one faces and knows exactly what to do and what not to do. At the same time she gently pushes you enough to actually make the big difference. I am now back to the way I was before having the kids - just that now I am even little stronger.

But it is not just the strength and shape of your body, but Charly will also help you adjust for any imbalances in your body.

I was very sad when I moved from Brooklyn and was not able to take her class anymore, but I am still doing a lot from our routine, that helps me stay fit.

She is wonderful!

I have been taking Liam's Tai Chi/ Qi Gong class for nearly two years now. He is a dynamic teacher that is sensitive to different types of learning paces and styles (both eastern and western) and employs both in his classes. His explanations are simple and he always relates the movement back to its origin as a martial arts defense/offensive move which helps one establish the intention behind the movement. I have learned yang short form and chen style short form from him. I would highly recommend that you take his class if you are interested in beginning or continuing a tai chi practice. Through my practice I have found a healthy way to manage stress and anxiety.

About Sara
Hello! I'm Sara!

I started dancing at the age of 3. I am well versed in Ballet, Modern and Jazz. I attended Joffrey San Antonio (2004) and Paul Taylor New York (2010) intensives.

While in high school I taught Ballet, Jazz, Pre-Pointe and Pointe classes to dancers age 3-14.

In 2011 I graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ballet Pedagogy (which is the art or science of teaching).

Since moving to NYC 5 years ago I have been focused on performing with such dance companies as Exit 12 Dance Company (2011-2012) and Community Dance Project (2013-2014). While not dancing with specific companies I have choreographed and danced in two music videos.

I can't express my love for teaching enough! To know that I could help spark the passion of dance in a young person is extremely inspiring.

Please inc
lude your area and availability in your messages!

I would prefer to teach students with professional or aerobic goals. Social dancing is not one of my subjects.

About Beverly
I am certified as a teacher of English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) and English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). I am also ACE-Certified as a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor, specialized in Core Fitness, Senior Fitness Training and Functional Fitness. I train clients in their homes and online. Half of my day is dedicated to teaching ESL and the other half to fitness training.

In 2013 I gave up a longstanding career in Logistics and Imports to pursue my passion for fitness and education, and I have not looked back since. I enjoy helping others to learn and expand their horizons through language and movement. One of the reasons I became an ESL instructor is because I wanted to experience culture and diversity. I am truly blessed to have been given this wonderful opportunity to impart my own knowledge while lear
ning from others.

“I've tried to learn English for a long time and, though I learned a big amount of words , I wasn't able of having a short conversation with nobody. Teacher Beverly have been making a great job by identifying my difficulties and then working hard straight on it at abslutely enjoyable online classes. I'm really happy because in a few time I've improved my English skills as I've never did before, nevertheless I'm sure that there are so much to be learnt from her yet.”

My english is very poor, but beverly is great, I do not understand, she will say over and over again, let me understand. The most important, she makes you from simple to difficult little bit to master English grammar, not boring. At present, I have already said a lot of sentences. I'm very happy.thank you teacher 🌹

About Bill
I am patient, sensitive and intuitive. I teach well beyond what the choreographed movements look like. I teach how they are done in a way that maximizes their health, strength and martial benefits. I teach what makes the movements Tai Chi, so that you can incorporate the internal principles into your daily life. I teach you how to approach your practice from a perspective of growth, development, improvement, and how to become more mindful, improve mind-body connection, function, neural plasticity, health and ability.

I teach Tai Chi, Meditation, Qigong, and Ba Gua Zhang. I am a certified teacher since the year 2000, and a practitioner of the internal martial, movement, and meditative arts since 1990.

I teach on-site; privately in your home or gym, or to your group at the office, hotel, conference, or school.

My students have ran
ged in age from 2 years old to 95 years old. Teaching sites have included: pre-K and early childhood learning schools, senior centers and senior homes, corporate offices, hotels, industry conferences; and boutique gyms, wellness centers and physical therapy offices.

I have also taught ongoing classes, weekend workshops and seminars, and week-long retreats in New York, London, and Frankfurt.

I have been awarded medals in a number of regional tournaments and have been featured in several martial arts magazines.

I am also a certified scuba diver, and an avid world traveler. Find out more at my website comprehensivetaichi.
