~ What People Are Saying ~
"Great class! A great way to relax, get exercise, raise energy and enjoy the outdoors. I've never done this form before and I really love Angie's style - don't stress about getting every move perfect before moving on, you can practice part of the form at each class and refine each section as you continue your practice. Will definitely be back for more."

"Loved it! Definitely will continue learning Tai Chi. For my first visit Angie was patient, easy to understand and had a calmness that really helped me through my nervousness of trying something new. I love the low impact aspect of this."
"Excellent! I thought Angie was very clear with the instructions and went slow enough so we were able to keep up. I will be attending from now on."

"Angie, as already said in person, u-r a true gift to Long Beach & this World! What a perfectly magnificent day spent here, calming ourselves thru this beautiful art form for body, soul & mind. Arrived slightly stressed from string of sometimes non-sensical days, chasing-our-own-tail activities, ...then suddenly leaving this water-view park super refreshed & uplifted! Infinity of blessings for bringing your light to/for us all! Til next one *cheerz & hugz* =) "
~ Angie Sierra's Tai Chi Story~
"I'll never forget the first time I came across Tai Chi. It was at a 5-days silent retreat. I was walking in nature and noticed a man underneath this beautiful tree moving in a slow graceful manner. I didn’t know at the time what exactly he was doing, but I was fascinated with the graceful, almost meditative-like movements. I stopped and sat in awe, wondering what this was, but I couldn’t ask him because I was at a silent retreat :)
As soon as I got home I Googled, “graceful meditative movements”, and Tai Chi came up.
I searched for classes in my area and found a beginners group minutes away.
It only took attending 1 class to fall in love with the art. After a few months I then was invited to practice 3 days a week with a Master named Master Tâm at a Buddhist Temple in Long Beach Ca. There we practiced Tai Chi, Fan, Dao, Shaolin Cane and other like forms. Since then, I have become a Tai Chi Instructor, and my balance, focus and overall health has improved as a result of Tai Chi."
