Tai Chi in Tucson, AZ

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT -- Free Lessons Available through August 15th:

I will be offering free lessons via Zoom, through August 15th. For more information on classes and rate changes, please see the classes page.

During this unusual quarantine time, I am waiving the standard fees and offering free private Tai Chi lessons via Zoom. I am offering free lessons because I would like to give people the opportunity to develop their practice or simply get started. Also, for the Tucson area -- if there are enough people taking lessons, or interested, I will offer an in-person group class as soon as it is safe to do so. Until then, be safe, and if you have any questions: or phone/text -- 520.461.5731. More information about private and group classes on the classes page.


Zoom Sessions -- Zoom is working great for lessons via computer (or smartphone). If you don't have it already, please download and install to your device. After we've scheduled a session, I will be sending you a link to our particular Zoom session right at the start of the lesson. Click that link, and we're all set!



What is Tai Chi? Tai Chi is an ancient discipline which in short is a combination of gentle exercise combined with meditation and relaxed intent.

Tai Chi is good for: Relaxation, promoting health, feeling a greater sense of peace, strengthening the body, improving balance, assisting a healing process, and helping to make a better, more enjoyable connection with one's own body.

What does Tai Chi require? However much conscious and relaxed effort you are willing to put into it. Though it requires some work I believe that Tai Chi ultimately gives back more than what you invest into it.

What level do you teach? Most beginning to advanced levels. Whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced practitioner I am generally able to offer the 'next step' to practitioners, often in classes with people of mixed skills and abilities.

A gentle workout? I believe that many discover the practice of Tai Chi to be a novel experience in their life. I think we are used to the extremes of modern life: passive relaxation, i.e. watching a movie on the sofa. Or we may have active tension: putting effort into work or a task and being physically and/or mentally tense. Tai Chi aims for 'active relaxation' -- being consciously engaged but physically relaxed. For many it's an exciting new way to approach any activity or their life in general.
