Arriving in St. Marys, GA from Washington, D.C. in 2007, I found no one who knew what Tai Chi was. Thus, in order to find other players, I realized I had to teach. Over the years, I had discovered that Dr. Paul Lam's "Tai Chi for Arthritis" was an excellent program for introducing folks to this ancient art. Today there are dozens with whom I can play. Among these are my colleagues, other certified instructors who adhere to safe and effective methods of teaching Tai Chi for health and wellness. Our goal is to make Southeast GA and Northeast FL a mecca for Tai Chi players.
Camden County is located in the Southeast corner of Georgia, just north of the Florida border. This, and the surrounding area, with it's rivers and marshes provide a perfect background for learning and practicing Tai Chi. As interest in Tai Chi has grown, we have expanded and have teams of instructors north from Brunswick, Waycross, and Blackshear and south to Amelia Island and Jacksonville.
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.
