Breast Cancer Awareness

Breast Cancer Awareness

I’ve had breast cancer twice; once before I began practicing Taoist Tai Chi® arts and once after. The first time, I had difficulty with tightness and scarring, which made it difficult to move. When my cancer came back the second time, my recovery was much quicker because practicing the Taoist Tai Chi® arts kept me […]

Music and Jongs

I am a professional musician and Taoist Tai Chi® practice keeps me in shape physically. It helps me not get injured, keeps me elastic, and somehow keeps my body working even if I’m nervous. The hand movements are particularly good for my playing. This is all very important for me.  ~Oren

Lorsque je prépare le repas, j’applique les principes enseignés dans les arts Tai Chi Taoïste®.
