Patty
I started with Patty's classes in 2001. I was 51 years old and getting pretty beat up by Menopause
and Endometriosis in particular. I was a Jogger for many years but needed to add a good class with
weights and high and low impact exercise to really get into good shape. My best friend recommended
Patty's Classes and rest as they say is History.

Everyone knows that Exercise is critical to good health and if you have any chronic conditions is it
especially important !! Patty's training sessions are the best I have ever gone to - in addition to the exercises, the knowledge
she has imparted to all of us has been just as rewarding. I schedule everything "around" my training.
because I never want to miss and the older I get the more critical it is for me !

It is not an exaggeration by any stretch of the imagination when I say that her training session have saved my life
because it is literally true. I had a serious illness a few years ago that took such a physical toll that there
is no way I could have survived it had I not been in the best physical shape of my life and that was at age 60 !
Oh and her Boot Camp class is the best ever - hands down.

When I began to train with Patty I was a vending machine addict. Patty helped me kick my habit! I would buy 4 pops a day @ $1.25. This added up to $100 a month. I would also buy other vending machine items, totaling up to an additional $40.00 a month.
My work junk food vending machine habit ran me $140.00 a month...which pays for over half of what I spend in training with Patty! When people tell me I must be rich to have a trainer, I tell them "I just stopped eating and drinking crap and it pays for my sessions"...people don't realize how much they spend on junk food....hope this helps someone else!

What makes the Skype workout so convenient is, that I can literally get up, go to the living room and start my workout. I do not have to leave my home and that makes it so much easier to continue on with exercise. It is the perfect amount of working out. After 40 sessions with Patty, I always still come out feeling great. This workout has made such a difference in my life style and my body!! Ryan S.

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.

About Ya Dang
Li Ya-Dang was born and raised in New England. As a child he enjoyed play-fighting with his friends and all things martial arts. Although his was raised without any formal training, the yearning within him grew. It wasn’t until later that he began his journey into wushu.
During his time studying Roger Williams University and commuting to school a calling was felt to seek out and find a master in order to balance all of his work and study as well as himself. He first studied Taekwondo under the tutelage of the late Keith Medeiros, a 6th Dan Master. At 20, walking into a quiet gym, it was then that he discovered Wen-Qing Wu and began his first steps into Chinese martial arts through Tai-Chi Chuan (Taijichuan). Eventually all his time was diverted to training under his new master and the teachings of his Grandmaster, Liang Shou-Yu. Study
ing movements from Taijichuan, Northern Longfist, Emei styles and weapons, he absorbed all that he could. He added Baguahzhang, xingyichuan and nèijiā to his training soon enough. After a few years he was already assisting in classes and began black belt training.
Li continued to train with his master to learn how to be leader as well as instruct others.
After many years, Li decided to “come down off the mountain” and follow the Dao’s path for his life. He then began transition towards that of a teacher and master. Dedicated to research of the Emei system and its current lineage holders he took it upon himself to explore, excavate mysteries of the past in order to reestablish ancient relics of kungfu to share with all who would learn from him. His founding of the White Monkey System is a reincarnation of Bai Yuan’s original studies along with White Cloud’s inclusion of Buddhist and Daoist teachings together.
After 17 years of martial experience his goal is to pass along the long secretive traditions to a new generation of students.
