2016 In Review:
Many can live an entire lifetime without having pursued change for the better. This happens to some even when they know that a change will greatly improve the quality of their day-to-day, moment-to-moment life experience. I often wonder why this is.
Students of Chen Tai Chi understand the nuances of improving their quality of life, both from the inside out and the outside in. Tai Chi cultivates an enthusiasm for health, movement, and fluid interaction with one’s world. The usefulness of the skills in Tai Chi extends far beyond just performing routines. For me, it began 18 years ago when I started my personal Tai Chi journey with Grandmaster Chen Zhenglei. And, even now as a teacher, my understanding continues to develop and deepen every day.
