Why Should I Take Private Tai Chi Classes?
There are countless reasons to invest in yourself to
increase your skill quickly... in any of the arts that we offer.
In a private lesson, a teacher can offer personal attention and encouragement to the student and help them achieve the goals they have set for themselves and maximize their time spent with their instructor.
If you're like most beginners, you might feel a little self conscious, awkward or maybe even uncoordinated which is natural. Many students after working with me for a short while then feel comfortable moving into a group class.

Working professionals with busy schedules might have conflicts with set class times, so privates lessons can provide flexibility in scheduling.

Taking classes is a good way to learn the basic choreography of a form, but individualized instruction is valuable if a student wishes to advance to a
higher level at a much quicker pace.
You see what happens is that the student may picture themselves a certain way, and their form or expression of a move may not be correct (their form deteriorates). It's easy to start violating the principles of Tai Chi, it's hard to be objective about ourselves.
Private Lessons will save you years in mastering Tai Chi Chuan.
