    Does Tai Chi Gung Really Work?

    Well, it’s working for thousands of people in our community in more than 30 countries all over the world right now. And Tai Chi Gung has been shared in an unbroken lineage more than 3,000 years so it’s stood the test of time.

    Meet Your Teacher

    I abused my body for years with high impact exercises and activities. This led to a full knee replacement & limited mobility. In Spring of 2021, I found Master Lama Rasaji and Tai’ Chi Gung. Skeptical of these gentle movements, I was amazed at the daily transformation in my body, mind & Soul. I learned during my 1st 45 Day Renewal to slow my mind as my body began to fill with vibrant energy. I loved ALL the classes with Master David and practicing the Tai’ Chi Gung way of life changed everything! It helped me clarify my purpose and gave me the confidence to move forward in it. It transformed both the atmosphere in my home and my marriage. It has deepened my relationship with the Divine more in the last 2 years than in 40 years of walking with God. I immediately knew I wanted to share this ancient & transformative Spiritual Art with Humanity!

    I now have a growing family of students and I am so honored to be the 1st Instructor in the state of Tennessee. Gratefulness for the restoration of great health & vibrant energy, now allows me to compassionately usher my students into the Power of Peace. Come experience the chi and spread YOUR butterfly wings! I look forward to meeting ya’ll! 

    Terri is Mom to 7 and Gramie to 9. She is currently a writer, Podcaster & TN Environmental Ambassador focusing on Pollinator Gardens. She loves journaling, gardening, walking in the woods, spending family time, and Tai’ Chi Gung! 

    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!

    What Should I Wear?

    Comfortable street clothes are fine. The class is done standing up, and it’s so gentle you won’t break a sweat!
