A testimonial from a student ~ (Feb 2019)

It delights me that the YMCA has added Tai Chi to its roster of classes. 
Tai Chi has given me a tried and true method of integrating mind - body - spirit.   As I am aging, I became acutely aware of my increased chances of falling, The Tai Chi practice is my antidote to this problem.  It keeps the mind juicy, the body responsive and the spirit young. 
It appears that we are doing very little, when in reality I am breaking a sweat in the first 15 minutes.

Car Care and Tai Chi! - by Margaret Olmsted (Jul 2018)

I went to a car show last spring and admired the beautiful old cars that had been lovingly cared for. It reminded me that for those of us who are aging, we are like older cars.
