What People Say.....

*"Thank you for teaching this intro class!! I really enjoyed it! You’re such a good teacher! I’m so glad I took the class! Even though I often feel clumsy & awkward, I’m pretty amazed that I could do anything!  I can already see how Tai Chi is a wonderful form of physical coordination and flexibility, and I look forward to when I get good enough, that it can be a form of relaxation and meditation! It has been a fun experience!"

 "Breaking down the 24-form Yang Style into smaller tasks allows you to get feedback, make course-corrections, and stay motivated toward the completion of it.  Sherry’s 8-week segments is just the right amount of instruction I could absorb. Then VOILA! She set me up for success. Thank you, Sherry."

 "Sherry is a welcoming teacher who is also the kind of class leader who leaves no one out and no one behind without stopping the class or wasting other students' time. She does not shame or tease about mistakes and is very reassuring about student progress and practice. My level of comfort was very low coming into the class and that insecurity disappeared as the first class began. As an older person with arthritis, pain and hearing issues, I experienced no problems listening to Sherry or taking a moment out or a lesser movement due to pain."

Here is a statement from the studio owner in Stillwater where I currently teach Tai Chi:

(re: classes have always been full)…It has more to do with Sherry and her nurturing style of teaching. — Learning something new, especially something intentionally designed to challenge the brain, is bound to be a little frustrating for a while. Sherry’s ability to guide her students to stay with the practice and slowly get beyond this point and move toward a meditative practice is a gift of a very good instructor.

Why would I do Tai Chi?

Tai Chi has many positive effects including improving balance, coordination, circulation, memory, mental health, longevity, etc.   And, many physicians are recommending Tai Chi practice to their patients.

Tai Chi is a practice that involves a series of slow gentle movements and physical postures, a meditative state of mind, and controlled breathing. Tai chi originated as an ancient martial art in China. Over the years, it has become more focused on health promotion and rehabilitation. (National Institute of Health)

Tai chi is a gentle, low-impact form of exercise in which you perform a series of motions while focusing on deep, slow breaths. “It’s sometimes called ’meditation in motion’ because it’s a series of exercises that can help harmonize your body’s energy and mind,” (Cleveland Clinic) 

This gentle form of exercise can help maintain strength, flexibility, and balance, and could be the perfect activity for the rest of your life.  There is growing evidence that this mind-body practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems. And you can get started even if you aren't in top shape or the best of health.  (Harvard University) 

Tai Chi…was originally developed as a martial art. “It originated in the thirteenth century and is a non-impact exercise that helps people understand and feel their postural alignment through slow careful moving,” explains Betty Chewning, Ph.D., Tai Chi prime research investigator at Tai Chi Health and a professor in the School of Pharmacy at University of Wisconsin-Madison. “It also enhances your body awareness, balance, coordination, strength, and flexibility.”  (
