Gregg (Jan 2022)
I was diagnosed with Covid in October of 2021 and quarantined for 21 days during the healing process. Due to complications, I was unable to do my normal resistance and cardio workout routines and was searching for a physical routine that I could do while standing, that would also include a breathing component as well. It was during this time that I was blessed, and really lucky, to discover Leia Cohen's Tai Chi series on my YouTube feed.
I was immediately drawn to Leia's teaching style, her easy-to-follow movements, her explanations giving deeper context to the practices, her patient manner, her voice, and the fact that she broke the routines down into smaller time frames that matched my energy level at the time. Leia's programs gave me something to look forward to two times a day, each morning and afternoon, and provided structure to my days of bedrest. Throughout my entire quarantine, Leia's Tai Chi helped keep my body, my energy and my breath moving in a healthy way. I am now fully recovered from my Covid experience with no lasting effects. I attribute a large part of my physical, mental and emotional healing to Leia's awesome instruction and have continued my practice everyday since. Thank you Leia for being a part of my healing journey, and for making such a powerful practice available to so many people.
Warmly, with deep gratitude,

Message: I don't know how to say this. Taiflow has changed my life. I completed a 100-day challenge, focused on your 5-minute video. I had previously done some yoga, the 8 brocades, etc. but the serenity I feel now, and the improved balance a notable. Thank you so much. I will be ordering some books but wanted to reach out to thank you

I wanted to be sure you know that regardless of that, your work is appreciated and makes a difference daily in the lives of others. As a stroke patient learning to reconnect with her body over the past few years, I can say unequivocally that your work has improved the quality of my life. My physicians and physical therapists agree. I know that I am not the only one who has benefited. And so for that...thank you. Some people will progress much further beyond these introduction videos, others are lucky to even move at all. So again, thank you for your good work and best wishes.

I look forward to continuing my Tai Chi journey.

Here in Vermont, we follow the videos everyday and love it. My wife and I are about 70 and this is something I have wanted to do all my life - finally! My mother was born in Hong Kong, so I grew up hearing stories of China, and it left me with an ingrained love and respect for the culture. We love your work and feel we have found the perfect teacher.
