One Day In-House Retreat, Saturday March 18th.

Join me for a one day retreat and immersion into the world of Tai-Chi, Qi-Gong, and related practices at our academy. We will have two breakout sessions, and a catered Chinese food lunch. Spend a day at the academy and treat yourself to a day of practice, reflection, fellowship, and a break from the phone/FB/computer etc!!!!! More details and a sign up to follow. Regular Saturday classes will be suspended for that day.

Grandmaster Wai-lun Choi is coming back to the Twin Cities!

Master Choi is coming in April to conduct a few seminars and workshops, and to reconnect. If you haven't met him, you are in for a real treat! If you have met him before, you won't believe the energy and power! Classes will include: Hsing-Yi 5 Elelments, Applications, and Kwan-Do Applications. Pa-Kua Mother Palms first two palm changes and their applications, Tai-Chi Sensitivity, Pushing-Hands, and training. An Intro to Liu Ho Pa Fa Main Form. I will have a few private times available. More details and prices and times, as well as a sign up are coming. This is going to be amazing!

A special thanks to Fred and Robert Sparks for all the extra help around the academy. You guys rock!

Beginning in March, I am requesting that you pay your tuition in two month payments, paying for two months at a time. This will  make it easier for my new bookkeeper, oh, that's me!! If this is a hardship, or you have questions, please ask or e-mail.

Thank you all for your support, enthusiasm, and inspiration. I have had some of the best classes of my more than 30 years of teaching!


"Just as you wouldn't leave the house without taking a shower, you shouldn't start the day without at least 10 minutes of sacred practice: prayer, meditation, inspirational reading."
