Hi, I am Christopher Nelson

Tai Chi Teacher

I fell in love with Tai Chi when I was 15 years old. It has sustained me for all these years. No matter what martial art I dabbled in, I always returned to Tai Chi because it taught me not just to have a body, but to BE a body, moving through space and time. Tai Chi transforms the body into an instrument of peace, of joy, of spiritual transcendense, of comfort, of strength.

My greatest pleasure is in sharing my love for this wonderful art and seeing my students discover a whole new way of being.
