Why Should I Take Private
Tai Chi Lessons?

There are countless reasons to invest in yourself to 
increase your skill quickly...
in any of the arts that we offer.

In addition to personalized training, you will receive access to
supporting video lessons to make your training easy and fun!

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 if that's your goal. 

Maybe you're feeling that you'd like to start a class, but think that you're too far behind an ongoing one and won't be able to catch up? I promise you will.

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

Every teacher has a basic approach in how they try to teach, demonstrate, and make adjustments to their student’s form. I will custom design a training program help you reach your personal goals, at a greatly accelerated rate, and at a depth not possible with group classes.

In a private lesson I'm able to give you my undivided attention, and help you focus and work on what's important to you, and what's needed in your development.

I assure you that private classes will make you feel more
confident and centered in your Tai Chi practice.

You will make swift progress!

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 feel that their form is perfect, however it might not be so.
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.

Regular Private Students gain access to recorded Zoom Classes at their current level.

There is a Chinese expression that sums this up perfectly...

"Off by an inch, Off by a Mile."  

Proper Correction makes a Profound Difference in the 
advancement of one’s skill.  
This is particularly true for more experienced students.

Tai Chi Chuan is a very comprehensive system with many specialized areas.
So no matter what your goal is... be it health, self-defense, meditation, or expressing the beautiful postures and moving forms contained within, private lessons allow you to concentrate on the aspect of training that is most important to you. 

A perceptive and objective instructor can make immediate and
on-the-spot corrections to a student’s form.

"I know from personal experience how these arts will help you...
When I had a life threatening disease, 
these arts gave me the
inner strength I needed to see it through.
I was then thankful that I had a
vehicle to bring me back to 
full health and vitality."       Bruce

What they say about us

I had pain shooting down my arms and legs...I didn't know what to do. I was desperate, and ready to try anything.
Bruce taught me one of his "standing sets" to help me release the tension in my neck, and back.
Over time gravity helped to separate the space between the discs in my spine. This helped the impingement of the nerves that was causing me so much pain.

I had been away from practice for a few years and was starting to feel stiff, and out of sorts for awhile. I took a chance and started working out  at Bruce's School. My Tai Chi Form is taking on so many new dimensions, and layers of understanding. You see what's great is that Bruce just doesn't teach sequences of moves, he teaches principles that you can immediately apply to your art.
I now have more flexibility than I've ever had in my life, and I just feel stronger, more centered, and in control.
