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.

Cindy is a joy to work with. She has helped me learn to relax and ease a stiff neck with her skillful qigong instructions. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in learning stress reduction techniques.

I have had the pleasure of taking Qigong classes with Cindy for over a year. She is an excellent instructor. She explains the benefits of the particular moves being practiced, as well as explaining how to do all of the moves. To me, the time with Cindy in Qigong is calming, uplifting, and spiritual.

I met Cindy taking classes at a studio where she taught Qigong.
We then had her come to the house to give us private classes.

Her method of teaching is excellent. She helped us both with our flexibility and
balance.

The health benefits were wonderful. Lower blood pressure and increase in my bone density where no medication was needed.
