Karen has been teaching Tai Chi at The Center of Gravity for 5 years. A lifelong teacher, Karen brings her experience in education to her Tai Chi class. Her Sun Style classes help students to develop their own Tai Chi practice into a moving meditation, resulting in increased strength, balance, flexibility, and mental well- being. Karen’s introduction to Tai Chi began at the Lexington YMCA. It did not take long for her to discover that she wanted to go deeper into the practice of Tai Chi. She earned Tai Chi for Health Institute certifications in Tai Chi for Arthritis and Tai Chi for Beginners.
Desiring to advance her own practice, Karen continued her training with Master Trainer, Meghan Bryant, of Charlottesville. She was accepted into the week long The 73 in Depth master class taught by Dr. Paul Lam, founder of the Tai Chi for Health Institute. Currently, she is studying with Sifu Dan Jones, of the Moving Stillness Tai Chi Chuan and Healing Arts Studio, in Michigan. This training enables Karen to go beyond hand and foot placement, and to explore the depth and principles of Tai Chi with her students.
