Reza M. says, "Absolutely phenomenal trainer. Slavi has accommodated my and my fiancé's learning styles and pace of learning. He's patient, highly knowledgeable, and observant of our form. He ensures we understand the foundational moves so we can build upon those and become better fighters and corrects us until we get it right. Besides his abilities as a coach, Slavi has a great personality and is easy to have fun with while still remaining professional, dedicated, and firm. We'll be sticking with him for as long as possible. We can't say enough good things about him!" Read more

I am spirit who's calling is to provide direction and value for those who seek to develop their mind and body. I specialize in personal training, meditation, journaling, breathwork, martial arts, and yoga. The development of your physical body requires mental/emotional changes, thus, it's fundamental to facilitate the simultaneous growth of both. What we'd do is identify where you are and where you'd like to go while maintaining a balance of self-acceptance and self-improvement—unlike the toxicity of the modern self-help movement which is primarily concerned with self-improvement.

Your tai chi chuan questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do Tai Chi classes cost?

Tai Chi classes cost $50 to $100 per month, depending on the school, location, and number of classes per week included in the membership plan. Classes held at community centers typically cost less than those held in professional marital arts dojos, and some local parks offer free classes.

Many schools offer individual drop-in classes for $15 to $25 each. A drop-in class provides you with the perfect opportunity to evaluate the school and instructors to make sure they're a good fit for you before signing a membership contract.

Online Tai Chi classes cost $15 to $35 per month for unlimited access. However, you may benefit more by taking some in-person classes first to ensure you're practicing with the correct form.

What is Tai Chi?

Tai Chi is a noncompetitive martial arts practice that incorporates continuous flowing movements, controlled breathing, and meditative awareness. Because it is a mind-body exercise, Tai Chi is often referred to as "meditation in motion" and is known for its mental and physical health benefits.

Tai Chi – also called T'ai Chi, Tai Chi Chuan, or Tai Ji Quan – originated in China in the 12th century as a system of exercise and self-defense.

What are the benefits of Tai Chi?

Tai Chi provides a variety of mental and physical benefits, including:

  • Improved balance and mobility
  • Increased flexibility
  • Less pain and stiffness
  • Improved sense of well-being
  • Reduced stress and anxiety
  • Increased concentration and awareness

Tai Chi has also been proven to lower blood pressure, improve cardiovascular fitness, relieve arthritis pain, and prevent falls.

What to wear for Tai Chi?

Wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing to practice Tai Chi. Choose clothes made from breathable fabrics to prevent overheating. Tai Chi involves many slow reaching and turning movements, so clothing that allows you to move freely is ideal.

Wear lightweight, flexible, thin-soled shoes or go barefoot. Avoid sneakers with thick soles or treads that may snag on the floor or restrict ankle flexibility.

Bring a reusable water bottle, especially if practicing outdoors.

How can I find Tai Chi classes near me?

When evaluating Tai Chi schools near you, follow these guidelines:

  • Compare membership packages from multiple schools.
  • Read school and instructor reviews on Lessons and Google.
  • Visit the school to confirm it's clean and well-maintained.
  • Take advantage of a drop-in class to ensure the school and instructor are a good fit for you.
  • Get a copy of the membership contract in writing before making any payments.

What questions should I ask Tai Chi instructors?

Ask these questions to ensure you find the best Tai Chi school for you:

  • How long have you been teaching Tai Chi?
  • What membership plans do you offer, and how much do they cost?
  • Do you offer a free or discounted trial class?
  • What is your class schedule?
  • Are your classes beginner-friendly?
  • Are your classes more wellness-oriented or martial arts-oriented?
  • How many people are in a typical class?
  • How long does each class last?
  • What should I wear to class?

Coach Slavi is professional and positive. The first lesson with my 12 year old went extremely well - he is quick to correct, communicates his knowledge & respect for Muay Thai, and is clearly experienced. We've already signed up for another lesson and hope to make this a long-term commitment.
