Meet Josie Bloom
Tai Chi Instructor
My Tai Chi journey began years ago while trying to avoid knee surgery. While learning a variation of the William CC Chen 60 Movement Yang Style Short form at a local school, I learned that Grandmaster had a school in NY and was still teaching . Less than 30 days later I started making trips to his studio in NY for private lessons, spring intensives and workshops. This is where Tai Chi became more than a knee fix for me . Tai Chi is always with me. It has enhanced my life in so many ways, physically, mentally and emotionally. I have been among the lucky to practice with Grandmaster via zoom for the past year and am looking forward to sharing everything I have learned from this gift of a practice. My passion for learning is what brings me to teaching Grandmaster says "the best way to learn is to teach."So here we are teacher...student...teacher.
An art embracing the mind, body and spirit
Conventional medical science on the Chinese art of Tai Chi now shows what Tai Chi masters have known for centuries: regular practice leads to more vigor and flexibility, better balance and mobility, and a sense of well-being. Cutting-edge research from Harvard Medical School also supports the long-standing claims that Tai Chi also has a beneficial impact on the health of the heart, bones, nerves and muscles, immune system, and the mind.
