    Meet Your Teacher

    Tai’ Chi Gung is a rewarding journey into regeneration & spiritual perception. Although known as Simple Yoga, the movements have a profound effect. They truly can turn back the hands of time – I regained my original height after only 18 months of practice!

    The quality of my life continues to expand. Even talents that died & were buried are resurrecting, showing me that they have value, wanting to be alive in me & expressed in the world. It is an extraordinary inner journey that can’t help but reflect outwards. Gently clearing away what is useless & unproductive, one uncovers hidden treasures of experiencing Chi. I would be honored, and would love to share this Divine Art of Tai’ Chi Gung, serving as a guide for you.

    Can I Join the Class Anytime?

    Lao Tzu created a series of warm ups and 4 basic standing exercises that are the core of every class. These are simple moving and breathing exercises that help students feel the life energy of Nature directly. Almost 90% of students feel it in their very first class.

    Whether you have been studying 6 minutes, 6 months or 6 years, you do the simple movements you learned in your very first class. They serve as an outline, and each student connects in their own way.

    Because we don’t hold back exercises, and they remain consistent, new students can join a live class any time. You’ll feel right at home.


    Leela is an extremely skillful Tai Chi Gung practitioner and teacher.  Her energy is warm and genuine, and at the same time she possesses a warrior-like strength, the perfect yin-yang combination.  I really enjoy going to her class, as the practice extends beyond the physical movements.  I always leave class feeling confident, clear-headed and calm.  She  inspires and empowers us to develop our own individual practice, and to connect to ourselves and those around us with intention.    ~Laura 

    Leela is an excellent teacher.  Grounded in gentle and powerful spirit, she translates the language of chi by effectively guiding her students in the movements. A large part of her success is due to the deep cultivation of her own practice, as well as an innate leadership within. This is evident in the graceful grounded way in which she navigates movement and life. One look at her posture and stance and one is able to ascertain her dedication to spirit. Acting as a conduit, she silently transmutes energy to students while guiding them through the physical practice. The result; a student who comes to understand the movement and flow of chi from a deeper understanding of a person solidly rooted in that energy.  

    Once, during class, I felt as if my feet were so deeply grounded they were leaving indentations in the concrete tile floor! I even lifted my feet to look underneath and make sure I hadn’t damaged the stone. The feeling was that powerful! All this from simply standing and going through the movements! When I leave class, life is pulsating through me, my surrounding environment radiating with energy! Come to class and see for yourself. The results are beyond words. After all, that’s energy for you.   ~Taylor
