When I first came to St. Marys, GA, in 2007, I knew it was the perfect place to play Tai Chi. With its wide river and lush marshes, St. Marys offers a perfect backdrop to playing in Nature. While this ancient exercise was virtually unknown back then, today I can count numerous Tai Chi players—from the Golden Isles to the First Coast. Among these are recognized certified instructors who adhere to safe and effective methods of teaching Tai Chi for health and wellness.
In 2018, recognizing the importance of a healthy Natural world and its connection to Tai Chi, I obtained my certification as a Nature and Forest Therapy Guide. As a result, I can guide you in the practice of Tai Chi principles (slow down, relax, focus), while bathing in the atmosphere of the Forest/Nature.
Camden County is located in the Southeast corner of Georgia, just north of the Florida border. This, and the surrounding area, with its many rivers and lush marshes provide a perfect background for learning and playing Tai Chi.
Tai chi is often described as meditation in motion, but it might well be called medication in motion (as) there is growing evidence that this mind-body practice has value in treating or preventing many health problems.
