David Vanadia
I really appreciate David’s teaching technique of repetition, encouraging questions, and his patience. Tai Chi is helping me to focus and be peaceful and centered. David is a thoughtful and thorough teacher. Deborah Patton Student

Hi, I’m David. I practice and teach Tai Chi Chuan and Qigong on Long Beach Island in Ocean County, New Jersey.

For over ten years, I have taught private lessons and group classes to people at gyms, community centers, companies, organizations, and wellness centers on both the east and west coast.

I teach Tai Chi, Qigong, and Yoga and specialize in helping folks feel more vibrant, centered, balanced, and healthy overall. I am independently insured and certified ERYT-200 through Yoga alliance.

Every body is welcome in my classes.
