I began my studies of Tai Chi at One Drop Monastery in the Pacific Northwest where I first learned principal of non-Doing. I continued my studies at the Longriver Tai Chi school in NYC, Rockland County and Amherst Mass.
I began teaching Tai Chi in 2015 and was accredited an ATCQ level 2 instructors certificate in 2020. In my teaching of the Yang 37 posture short form, sword, sensing hands and Dai Lu, I continue to seek ways to understand and convey the beautiful logic and natural physics of the form while honoring the healing, internal strength building, Chi flow and communal bonding that naturally take place in a Tai Chi practice.
Today prominent researchers such as Katherine Kerr (Brown University) and Dr. Peter Wayne (Harvard Medical school) are connecting movement based embodied contemplative practices to scientific findings, affirming that yes - this stuff is for real! Even for us skeptics!
In the words of my teacher Wolfe Lowenthal, (whose teachings are steeped in the Tao) in Tai Chi “There are no secrets,” only mysteries we unfold together.
I have taught in libraries, nursing homes, Martial Arts schools, Neurology centers, parks, senior centers, community centers, and retreat centers. In 2018 I started my own Mad Monk school of Tai Chi in honor of those misfit monks who lead with humor and compassion. For me, Tai Chi is a way of life; a method-less method for undoing and remodeling everyday excess, tension, and imbalance.
