Men’s Wellness Tai Chi Class!
Class meets on Sunday mornings at 9 am, at the St. Johns Cultural Arts Center/The Dance Company: 370 A1A Beach Blvd, St. Augustine, FL 32080 All ages are welcome to join. Please contact me at: 904-806-7123
Most of my students have been with me for over 10 years. All of them are committed to learning the art of Tai chi chuan. Tai chi is not a pass time, or hobby. Please do a search on the history of Tai Chi. Learn as much as you can on your own before calling me about taking classes. I don’t want to waste my time with those who are just curious about Tai chi.. Plenty of people teaching Tai chi in St. Augustine who would be happy to satisfy your curiosity. I’m not one of them.
Anyone who is serious about learning an art, first researches the art in question. Today, with the internet, there’s plenty of information to give you an idea if Tai Chi is for you or not. My classes are not $5.00 per class. I think it is a disgrace for any teacher to place such low value on their tai chi instruction. If that’s what you are looking for, then the YMCA may be a good fit for you.. I don’t take “drop-ins”. Don’t ask me about watching a class to see if it is for you. I’m not here to impress you nor entertain you..
Yes, I know how this sounds. Like I’m a grumpy, arrogant bastard who is full of himself. Perhaps I am. But after nearly 40 years of practice and quickly approaching my 70th turn around the sun, I don’t have time to waste. If you are my age, then you know what I mean.
So, if after reading the above you still want to give me shot (not literally), then give me a call. Be prepared to invest $80.00 for a month of classes once a week and see what you think. I will not teach you anything during that time. In fact, I may just pretend you are not there, and let you flap around like a fish out of water. I want you to fake it.. Try the best you can to mimic what we do. Feel clumsy and uncoordinated, etc., etc. If you come back after the first month, then we may just be a good match..
NeuroTaiChi™ – Restoring Function Through Movement™
NeuroTaiChi™ classes aim at helping to restore balance, leg strength, relaxation and proper breathing techniques. NeuroTaiChi™ is a therapeutic program created by Dr. Bernall which helps to prevent or treat movement disorders. Sessions are conducted at: 88 Riberia Street, Suite 350, Saint Augustine, FL 32084. Every participant receives a neurological exam for balance and coordination and the exam is filmed. After three months of study and practice the student is reevaluated to compare results from initial intake.
The benefits of daily Tai chi practice are numerous. Today medical doctors are suggesting that their patients should study mind/body styles of exercises and meditation methods in an effort to lower the negative effects of chronic stress. Tai chi is the ideal system of exercise to offset the burden in the body brought on by stress and the sedentary lifestyle of most Americans.
