Learn Tai Chi fundamentals from the Certified Instructor with 15 years experience
I've been teaching Taichi and Qigong for 10 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of Taichi and Qigong. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to practice 8 forms of Taichi and Ba Duan Jin (8 Brocade Qi Gong) and as time goes on you'll be able to complete 24 forms and more. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I had my first lesson with Emily this evening. She helped me to understand how to cultivate Qi; she is also great at explaining and illustrating the techniques. I’m looking forward to taking lessons with her in the future.

I am really enjoying the class with Emily. I am learning the 18 form fan Tai Chi. I need to go over the steps a lot of times before I actually get it and she is very patient. She is willing to take the time to go over the steps as many times as it takes. She also comes up with ways to improve my balance so I can complete the moves better. I hope to be able to continue taking classes from Emily.
