Tony's Mission and Philosphy

" I believe that Tai Chi Chih can help people embrace and magnify an ancient silent power, Chi. It can calm, transform and enlighten people. Watch health improve, obstacles drop, stress reduce and joy increase. Have the flow of the universe become your gentle guide. Be open, be brave, be encouraged, be joyful, be free, be in wonder. Let the good things come to you. Let’s take this wonderful journey together. I encourage you to fly. "
