Lakeshore TaiChi

“TaiChi favorably impacts the health of the heart, bones, nerves and muscles, immune system, and the mind…”
—Peter M. Wayne, Ph.D., author of The Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi.  

Master Yang (Ph.D.) inherited the traditional Yang style TaiChi, and has been studying and practicing it for over 30 years. For the love of TaiChi, in 2016 Master Yang dedicated himself to practicing 300 days of TaiChi on his own along the beautiful Lake Michigan shore. Then an idea suddenly struck him. Why not do more for the community helping people adopt healthier lifestyles through practicing TaiChi together.

So Master Yang and Mr. SingKit Leong created Lakeshore TaiChi Group focusing on coaching TaiChi learners graceful movements in natural environments along with relaxing music.
