What we're about
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.
