I think it has helped me with my stress. I've been incorporating more meditation into my week.

Sifu Dale has the ability to observe and make small course corrections that give long term results.

Dr. Karen Bartley, 40, Physician, Monroe NC

I have dislocated one hip 4 times, because I was careless. Likely I would have had to have had it replaced without Tai Chi to help with the strengthening (the surgeon threatened that) and constant reminders to be fully aware of what we're doing. Breathing exercises and meditation have been emotional and mental life-savers, if not physically, and those I do use daily!

Pat Blackwell, 81, Mooresville NC

The classes have developed into a regular exercise/meditation regime. I have dropped 10 1lbs of excess weight and put on 5 lbs of muscle. My balance is better, my heart rate is better, my blood pressure is better. My mind is beginning to be more calm.

Wm. Beau Wagner, 64, Mooresville, NC

I have more confidence that I can do what ever needs to be done. I recover from illnesses and injury more quickly. I have more energy than some of my friends - and they are in their 20's and 30's.

Dale Saufley, 49, Inside Sales/Marketing, Charlotte NC

They opened my mind to challenge myself physically and in a compassionate way. I have noticed increased joint pain and stiffness in the absence of tai chi practice. Also Increased anxiety in response to stress, and less emotional balance. I miss it. I take better care of myself overall when I’m more aware of my body and balance.

Ginny S., 58, Mooresville NC

Since taking Tai Chi I have become even calmer and more relaxed.

Tim Starnes, 42, Retired Military, Charlotte NC

Everything from my concentration to understanding points of power and flow of movement have been improved during my time studying Tai Chi Chuan. My mental concentration especially has improved vastly during my continuous training.

Jessie Kleinmeier, 26, Manager, Charlotte NC

Demonstrably helped my blood pressure, balance, posture/height, even as age continues to erode all. Both my PCP doctor and orthopedist are big believers in what they see I have accomplished and have stressed that I need to continue.
