Student Testimonial by Florence C.
I'm a keen practioner of Tai Chi and Qigong, when possible, I practice with masters from China, invited by our teachers here in Normandy, France. I wanted to enjoy intensive practice during my staycation. I was so intimated to register on-line! Well, the results went beyond my expectations. Thankfully to an excellent pedagogy and progression, I could achieve a lot more than I had contemplated. I have moved on the the next level now, and again the progression allows improvements in the posture, in the quality of the circulation of energy,in the relaxation of the muscles in coordination with the breath, and so much more ... The on-line courses, with a user-friendly website, permit to work at your own pace and this is absolutely wonderful. I'm looking forward the coming years to become a dedicated practioner!
