"I've been studying with Greg for almost a year. Greg's patience, enthusiasm for Taiji and teaching Taiji, and his depth of knowledge never cease to amaze me. He is very serious about Taiji but he never makes me feel like there is any rush to get anywhere. I like to walk my dog to the dogpark in the morning and practice Taiji while my dog romps around. Between weekly classes with Greg and practicing 2 times a week on my own, I'm very happy with my progress. I've been able to gain flexibility, strength, and a new kind of body awareness. I would recommend Greg highly to anyone - from senior citizen to competitive athlete." -Andrew, yoga teacher
