Ironwood Tai Chi


Robert Ploger began studying Tai Chi in Maryland in 1994 with Dr. Tim Lee. His studies included standing meditation (Zhan Zhuang Chi Kung) and the Yang and Chen style forms. Robert Ploger has been a music teacher for as many years and began teaching Tai Chi privately in 2000.

"When I began studying Tai Chi, the benefits of both exercising and relaxing were quickly obvious. I felt I had found a 'master art,' one that went so deeply to the core and that it could effect and improve other areas in one's life. I was noticing a new facility in my hobbies as well as in my work. I feel that Tai Chi at its essence (its principles, essentially) are simple, but not quickly accomplished. And this is one of the things I enjoy about this lifetime art. Since there is no 'limit' or 'end' to becoming more relaxed or more aligned, there is always more to learn and discover. Improved health and happiness seem to go along with the process of a continuing practice."

Robert has lectured and given classes at the following organizations:

Golden Gate Healing Center
