Students’ Comments

“I began my study of T’ai Chi a year and a half ago, and it has had a profound effect on my life. I have realized enormous health benefits as a result of my practice—stronger bones and muscles, greater breath control, increased balance and flexibility, revitalized energy. It has enhanced my overall sense of peace, confidence, and well-being. For centuries, people have searched for a ‘fountain of youth.’ I feel that I have discovered this treasure through T’ai Chi. I heartily recommend its practice to everyone, young and old.”
