Opened Good Spirit T'ai Chi Ch'uan: 2005

Beginning my Tai Chi Chuan training in 1994, the distinction between Yin and Yang was blurry. Although my vision of this relationship has improved through the lens of T'ai Chi, I am still seeking and learning. I have been teaching for the last thirteen years, and through teaching I'm reminded that I'm a student of the art.

I have had the fortune of training over the years with Herb Goldberg,  founder of T'ai Chi Ch'uan Atlanta, a highly regarded School of Yang Style. I have also studied with grandmasters and masters from China like Liang Shou Yu and Yang Jwing-Ming.

As the mentor on a mini-grant from the Center of Medical Humanities and Ethics, University of Texas Health Science Center (UTHSCSA), I and MPH students under my supervision performed research on the benefits of T'ai Chi Ch'uan on mobility. This research received an outstanding research project award at the Annual Community Service Learning Conference, UTHSCSA (2010).

In addition to ongoing classes, I have provided instruction and demonstrations at:

Women Heart Support Group, Methodist Stone Oaks Hospital (San Antonio, TX)
SaludAmerica Summit (Prevent Obesity among Latino Children, San Antonio, TX)
World Tai Chi Day (San Antonio, TX)
San Antonio public libraries
University of Texas Health Science Center @ San Antonio
Private organizations and businesses
Atlanta botanical gardens
Super Show (Atlanta, GA)


 A Good Spirit Dedication to Herb Goldberg.  It is my curiosity that brought me to investigate the world of T'ai Chi Ch'uan, but it is the master instruction of Herb that opened for me the true meaning of being a student of T'ai Chi Ch'uan. With him as my guide, my journey through the mysteries of T'ai Chi Ch'uan has been enlightening and full of wonder and humor.  To my teacher and dear friend Herb I dedicate this web site.

I find this class quite intense, calming and energizing, relaxing and challengening. (...)
