“For a beginner, Tai Chi is a workout. For a practitioner, Tai Chi is a discipline. For a master, Tai Chi is a way of living. And they are all the same Tai Chi.”
“The most spectacular change by far is my ability to balance on one foot, something I wasn’t very good at but that has definitely improved. Every class with Kris feels like a vacation as it gives my busy mind a rest from everything else that usually occupies it. I come out of class refreshed and I am improving week by week. The biggest surprise to me is that Tai Chi is so much fun!”
“Kris has a way of teaching that makes this discipline easy to learn and master. I keep going to refine my abilities and strengthen my core. What a great way to learn balance and stay agile. I am among the oldest in the class and easily keep up with those younger. If you are looking for low impact exercise, this is the class for you. Makes you strong and agile. Run, don’t walk to sign up for class.”
“After a series of hip injuries—with associated surgery, doctor’s appointments and physical therapy—I still required a cane just to get out of bed. I started taking Tai Chi and started feeling a difference almost immediately. After a few classes, I could walk without my cane. Now, not only do I not need a cane, but you can watch me confidently stand on one leg!”
