About this pro
I've been attending Chuck's Tai Chi class for almost two years this November and have nothing but good hings to say about it! I can count one hand hand how many times I have missed a class because I enjoy it that much. Chuck's personality is laid back enough and yet professional to really help you understand the methods, reasons why to the methods and forms makes it all very enjoyable. I've personally been on a wellness journey for the past 15 years and I'm truly grateful that I've added the art of Tai Chi on my path. The health benefits benefits not only physical but emotionally and mentally have been wonderful! My balance and flexibility has improved and it even has helped by blood pressure. I definitely will continue this art and will continue to be a student of Chucks . His passion and expertise along with a wonderful sense of humor makes the class most enjoyable!!Mar 14, 2016

I have been a tai chi student of Charles Parker for the last few months. I suffered a stroke in August and completed months of physical therapy, but was looking for something that offered more. Tai Chi promised to be a way to calm my mind and reduce stress along with slow, deliberate, flowing body movements. Although I am a beginner, this practice has given me a way to focus on the positive. Charles has a very easygoing nature and a non-judgmental way of teaching. You are encouraged to do whatever you are able and progress at your own pace. I look forward to class and feel that it is slowly helping me heal and get my strength back.Mar 6, 2016
I've been participating in Chuck Parker's Tai Chi class, offered through the Elk Grove Village Park District, for the past 5 years. About 2 1/2 years ago I had to undergo rotator cuff surgery. I returned to Chuck's class after my rehab was finished, and found that the slow, gentle movements of tai chi definitely helped my shoulder recover full range of motion and improved its strength. Chuck is great about cautioning anyone with a weak spot to "take it easy, yet do what you can." He suggests modifications when necessary. I throughly enjoy Chuck and this class.Mar 2, 2016
I have been studying Tai Chi with Charles Parker for several years and it has been an incredible experience. Tai Chi is an excellent form of exercise, both physically and mentally and can easily be tailored to assist you with physical rehabilitation. 'Chuck' is an excellent instructor and is more than happy to work with you to address any physical limitations that you may have all while still being able to teach at a level that gives you the full Tai Chi experience. Tai Chi is well suited to learning at your own pace and working within your physical abilities. It will strengthen your mind and body and can be enjoyed by all participants regardless of age, fitness level, physical ability, or limitations. Instruction is approached in a friendly, relaxed, safe and stress-free environment. You will not be disappointed.Mar 2, 2016
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?It all depends on what is wrong and how many sessions they need. It could be one session for $60.00 or a block of 10 for $500.00.I like to keep pricing down far below what others charge. My goal is to help people live a better quality of life.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First I talk to student/patient to find out what they are looking to achieve and where they are at physically along with the reason they need this type of therapy. I am new to Thumbtack and thought it would be a great way to reach out and help people that need it.My first session is always Free.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have trained in Tai Chi since 1974.Working with some of the top Masters in this art.Training in something such as Tai Chi for as long as I have I learned the right way to help people reach their physical goals and improve their ways of living life both mentally and physically.,
