After suffering debilitating lower back pain, Fleming starting practicing Tai Chi. He began studying with Golden Flower Tai Chi School and found that it was much more than safe, gentle exercise. For Fleming, Tai Chi is moving meditation, a form of self-empowerment, and a means of cultivating a sense of well-being. He approaches Tai Chi practice as “play.” His classes play with movement, breath and energy, bringing together mind, body and spirit. He teaches the Golden Flower Tai Chi beginner qigong form as well as the Yang-style short form.

Tai chi is a low impact exercise that has many potential benefits, including decreased stress and improved flexibility.
