Private Tai Chi Instruction
Laura's Ta'i Chi class, which is taught by her and her husband as a team, has been very helpful to me as a beginner. The class has students with all levels of experience, but they still are able to provide individualized assistance based on skill level. Also, they are friendly and patient and provide interesting background information about the history and practice of Ta'i Chi. I would recommend this class for anyone who is interested in learning Ta'i Chi in a professional and supportive environment.Jul 10, 2014Verified
Laura and her husband David are two of the finest Tai chi instructors I have yet had the pleasure to study with. They have the great gift of presenting information that is often difficult to grasp and internalize in a clear, systematic, and most engaging way. As a result, I and my fellow classmates are learning the movements, applications, and most importantly, the philosophy that constitute our Yang's tai chi form. To anyone who truly wants to learn tai chi, I cannot speak highly enough of Laura and David.Nov 11, 2015
An excellent Tai Chi instructor. Very knowledgeable, kind, compassionate, and patient.Oct 26, 2015
I could not have asked for a better teacher! I will continue to take classes from laura as long as she is teaching! It is super relaxing and I feel incredible since I started. You can really tell how much love she has for tai chi and it comes through when she is teaching. I recommend it for anyone interested!Oct 24, 2015
As a teacher Laura is patient, kind, and very knowledgeable. Each student is important and dealt with as a unique individual. Each class has moments of philosophical insight as well as light hearted play. She is very skilled at balancing the content of her classes. I have studied under a few tai chi chuan instructors but Laura is by far the best.Oct 24, 2015

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I began my study of martial arts in 1973 in Youngstown, Ohio with Sensei Stan Jacobs and now hold a 4th degree black belt in Isshinryu Karate. I taught for many years in the Kent/Ravenna area until I switched my focus to Chinese Martial Arts in 1989 and became a disciple of Master David Schenk, founder of the Center for Body Mind Harmony in Tallmadge, OH. I have been teaching T'ai Chi since 2006.
