Welcome back! We've been enjoying our classes and making progress along the way. Of course, sometimes some of us are still struggling to coodinate the footwork and the arm work, but all of us enjoy the benefits of the practice--we feel that we get stronger, better coodinated and flexible. We can kick our legs higher during our warm up! We can feel the chi flowing while we practice the moves. Sometimes we feel that we have an Olympic style practice although at a smaller scale. One thing we all agree--participation is the most important!
Look forward to your joining our taichi practice--meditaion in motion!
To improve our mental, physical, and spiritual health, we practice the art of Tai Chi.
Beginners and experienced practitioners are welcome. We invite you to join us to experience the amazing benefits of Tai Chi easily and safely.
All instruction is under Master Colon’s direct supervision with the assistance of a highly trained and experienced staff of Certified Tai Chi Instructors with extensive teaching backgrounds.
All classes are kept to a maximum of 8 students which provides an excellent student/teacher ratio and allows for individualized instruction which is our preferred teaching method.
Special one day workshops are scheduled periodically
Our school offers a full curriculum of Tai Chi classes for health and self defense, including an extensive formal Apprentice Teacher Training Program.
Most other Tai Chi classes are large groups that are taught under the "copy me" method with only a brief demonstration by the instructor and very little, if any, detail provided about the movements, benefits, cautions, etc.
We will not only give you detailed instructions to allow you to perform the movements easily, accurately and safely, but also the reasons why you should do the exercises the way we teach them. The traditional background to the movements, breathing techniques, chi energy theory, philosophy and much more information is given so that you will really feel the flowing grace and control of Tai Chi while achieving Tai Chi’s full benefits.
Master Domingo Colon began his study of Tai Chi in 1965.
Master Colon also studied physical therapy, working primarily in sports medicine, and in 1992 was certified as an Adaptive Fitness Instructor trained to teach aerobic, strength and flexibility exercises to the physically challenged.
This unique and extensive background in Tai Chi and physical therapy allows Master Colon to teach a highly effective and safe synthesis of Eastern and Western healing methods.
Master Colon is the author of “Seniors Tai Chi Workout” and “Teaching Tai Chi to Special Populations” designed to assist Tai Chi teachers in adapting Tai Chi for specific health conditions and circumstances.
