Winter at the Taoist Sanctuary is bringing workshops that will wow you! Qi Gong Master Ken Cohen is back in San Diego, and his workshop offerings include Yi Quan, Eight Postures of Taijiquan, Five Animal Frolics, and a special workshop with Curandera Grace Sesma on Taoist and MesoAmerican health and spirituality. Bill and I will continue our monthly workshops with offerings on the details and principles of Taijiquan. Master Jan Silberstorff is coming in January to teach his popular seminar on Chen style Taijiquan. What a fantastic winter of opportunity!
Bill and I will be starting another teacher training program in January 2016. This program will offer 2 years of instruction in teaching methods and material for teacher certification in Taijiquan and Qi Gong. Please let Bill or me know of your interest.
