From the heart

Of all the populations I teach tai chi to, none are more open-minded and open-hearted than Naropa students.


Fully authorized in the Cheng Manching tai chi chuan lineage in 2012 by Bataan Faigao and 2013 by Maggie Newman. Studied tai chi chuan with Jane and Bataan Faigao from 1983 until their deaths in 2001 and 2012, respectively. Studied closely with Maggie Newman from 2001 to the present. Other important teachers are Ben Lo and Wolfe Lowenthal.

Courses taught
