Classes with Amanda

Most of my teaching energy has been going towards traveling and work with students in China. I am open to scheduling USA workshops and if I offer some I will try to post them on this website.

Tai Chi Private Instruction

Tai Chi, Qi Gong, and Tui'na are simple traditional Chinese practices that use your inner strength or "Qi" to feel better. These simple healthy movements will improve blood circulation, balance, and the empowerment of your own self-care. This private instruction is designed for people of all ages and all physical abilities, chairs can be used. Tai Chi is portrayed like a river, one long flow, and Qi Gong is often described as being like clouds, individual movements. Self-massage or Tui'na handout (with pictures) is included so it will be easy to continue practicing afterwards. I can travel to your home for instruction, see for yourself how playing can help with equilibrium, aches and pains, and overall health.
