Congratulations to newly elected officers and board members. Great things are about to happen under new leadership. While my term as board member ended in 2017, the connection with Tai Chi for Health Community continues.

Overwhelming Energy and Enthusiasm -- by Tom Fletcher and Barbara LaRowe
Winning a scholarship was really a once in a lifetime opportunity. We could not have afforded the trip to Oregon without the financial scholarship help. I had taken Instructor Training for Tai Chi for Arthritis and Diabetes so I could substitute for my instructor. My wife and I studied and worked on Moving Stillness Fan Form DVD daily for a year to become proficient and we were excited beyond belief to see a fan class offered at the Oregon Workshop... Read More >> 

Laugh, Move and Grow Stronger Together -- by Anita Carter
Thank you, thank you, thank you to the Tai Chi for Health Community for granting me the opportunity to participate in the 2018 Tai Chi for Health Week Long in Forest Grove, Oregon. The scholarship helped me to seek a deeper understanding of the Sun Style 73 forms, to connect with others who are focused on a similar trajectory, and to translate that experience with those who join me each week in my small communities in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
