After studying Tai Chi for several years, it’s been my good fortune to have been in David’s Tai Chi class for this past year. His expertise in teaching and his patience have led me to experience improvement in my balance and my walking. Gerry Grover 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.
