Happy Year of the Horse.  Chinese New Year is Jan 31.

My winter 2014 class offerings are listed above under Winter 2014 classes.

This year in addition to community class offerings, I am excited to offer  Tai Chi Fundamental Professional Training for Health Care Providers.  The first training will be at the Iowa Physical Therapy Association State Meeting in Ames on April 26.  Kristi Hallisy  PT, DSc, OCS, CMPT, CTI from UW- Madison and I will co-teach this course.  Contact me if you would like additional information about this training program.

As we wander through the winter let us:

“Walk like a cat”

from The Essence of Tai Chi Ch’uan

Give yourself an early gift this holiday season and experience the ancient Chinese practice of Tai Chi frequently called “meditation in motion.”

Tai Chi fosters an efficient use of our mental and physical energy and a relaxed and alert state of mind.  Through training in relaxation, breathing, posture and slow integrated movement, tai chi practice provides us an opportunity to be centered, and grounded in the “busy-ness” of our lives especially during the holiday season.  What a wonderful gift: the balancing of your mind, body and spirit!

We will play with the basic functional movements and mind-body principles of Tai Chi and the Tai Chi Fundamentals® program. This class is appropriate for people of all abilities.   Please wear flat soled shoes and avoid colognes/strong scents, to support a tranquil and healing space.

I am looking forward to our fall classes which start the first week of September.  Please see the Fall 2013 class tab for information.   The class at the Johnson County Senior Center will move  at a slower rate for individuals with health conditions.  Contact me for information on additional classes.


Contact Lori at lori@breathbalance.com  or 338-0005 if you have questions.

We enjoyed our gathering at the Iowa City/Johnson County Senior Center Saturday morning.  Our apologies to our guests who came and were unable to get into the building.

The Senior Center has automatic locks and we were not aware that the doors were not set to stay open for the entire time of our event. We will remember this for our event next year.

For those interested in learning more about the health benefits of Tai Chi:

This video on You Tube is a lecture given in honor of World Tai Chi and Qigong Day by Harvard Researchers about the health benefits of Tai Chi.


I would like to let you know of a new book published by Dr.  Peter Wayne and Mark L Fuerst  from Harvard Medical School   “The Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi”

Peter discusses the principles of Tai Chi practice   and up-to-date clinical research on the health benefits of Tai Chi.

There is  space in my two classes starting next week on Monday from 2-3 PM and Thursday from 7-8 PM.
