  • Dorene Gabelli

    his quick responsiveness and his direction of where i can get help.....THANK YOU !

  • Char Ryan

    The classes blend Tai Chi basics and forms with broader information about meditation and health. They are fascinating; in almost three years, no class has ever been the same. I've learned so much about integrating motion, balance, and breathing.

  • Laura Englander

    Stan has an ability to teach you about your body as he conducts the class with a calm, quiet, and gently assertive style. He is very thoughtful about each class, changing attention to different parts of our bodies, and always integrating meditation with movement.

  • Nonny Levy

    Stanwood Chang is an excellent tai chi instructor. He is warm and encouraging, his instructions are clear, and he follows a creative and calming sequence of movements and exercises that provide accessible and gentle healing throughout the body. I highly recommend him to beginners as well as students with past experience in tai chi training or practice.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I allow new students the option to try out a class for a one-time fee before registering for a full session.  This allows them to experience my teaching style, plus discover just how good they can feel after only one class.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Yang style (Cheng Man-Ching) tai chi, 4th-generation practitioner (since October, 2003) with Dr. Peter Wayne

Chen style tai chi, 21st-generation practitioner (since September, 2005) with Master Wang Haijun

Sun style tai chi, 4th-generation practitioner (since January, 2006) with Master Thomas Duterme

Certified by the Tree of Life Tai Chi Center Teacher Training Program in September, 2008 (600-hour certification requirements: 100 class hours of Teacher Training, 100 practical hours of Level I/Level II instruction, 300 class hours of Level III Advanced Tai Chi, 100 class hours of Tai Chi Push Hands)

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$180 for three months (one class per week)

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with middle-aged to elderly students.  I have worked with students with special needs and health conditions including: Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury, COPD, and heart disease.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for a teacher that does not hide their training and lineage.  Look for a teacher that has compassion and empathy.  Look for a teacher that is keenly observant, intuitive, and thoughtful.  Look for a teacher who will tell you what s/he knows, and freely admit what s/he doesn't know.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What I am looking to get out of this class?  What aspect of myself am I looking to nourish (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual)?  What aspect of my life am I looking to improve?  How will I measure and know if I am improving in this area(s)?
