“I’m absolutely loving the sessions with you. I LOVE the outside park time. Especially in the mornings. It helps me recharge so much.”

“I  have taken several tai chi classes and I enjoyed yours the most. I immediately felt included and working with people what have been doing tai chi made it even more powerful for me. I could also feel the energy an d could see I have loads to learn. So, even though I’m a complete beginner, I got a lot out of class.”

About Durango Tai Chi

Durango Tai Chi has been helping learners since 2004. Our goal is to provide both a superior learning experience and great value. With nearly 20 years of training (previously a Shotokan Karate practitioner), instructor Paul Tim Richard is passionate about teaching and about sharing how learners can build a practice of their own. Teacher Tim practices the principles of internal martial arts and applies them to single-basic exercises and forms from the Wu, Chen, Yang (Pan-hou) and Cheng Man Qing styles of taijiquan, as well as Lan Shou Quan (Cao Quan), some Xing Yi 10 Animal, and several qigong sets of various origins.
