“The most spectacular change by far is my ability to balance on one foot, something I wasn’t very good at but that has definitely improved. Every class with Kris feels like a vacation as it gives my busy mind a rest from everything else that usually occupies it. I come out of class refreshed and I am improving week by week. The biggest surprise to me is that Tai Chi is so much fun!”
“Kris has a way of teaching that makes this discipline easy to learn and master. I keep going to refine my abilities and strengthen my core. What a great way to learn balance and stay agile.
