Rev. Tony became a Tai Chi instructor in 1976 when he was a student of a Buddhist Priest of the Shaolin order.  The style he teaches is called Tai Chi Chien, which is the Shaolin interpretation of the classical Tai Chi Chuan.  A bit more exacting but easier to learn and just as beneficial, if not more so in many respects. 

Rev. Tony has taught Tai Chi to people from 8 to 80 and was privileged to instruct Guru Rutansing, a Guru of Kundalini Yoga.  Tony was also selected to teach Tai Chi at a quarterly, one week gathering for one year for select Mensa members studying the Evolution of Consciousness.  One of his most uplifting experiences was teaching Tai Chi to the Unity Ministers at the Southeast Unity Ministers Conference in Asheville, NC.

Each year, usually in late Spring and Early Summer, Rev. Tony teaches Tai Chi, a classic form of exercise and meditation.  Its slow and deliberate movements gently exercise the the body in a total manner unlike our traditional western form of exercising.  It has also been accurately described as a moving meditation that brings the awareness within and centers it.  Rev. Tony will be instructing you in the Short Form of Tai Chi Chien.  He will also include a number of other beneficial exercises.

  • The Stances and Gliding Exercise
  • Breathing techniques
  • Meditation techniques
  • Grabbing Chi (a total body and cardiovascular exercise without moving your feet)
  • Flattening the tummy from the Tan Tien (the Chi center in the body) and…
  • Making every step you take an exercise that tones the body
  • Additional flexibility exercises
