Nicole is a great teacher, patient, easy to follow instructions. Also I enjoy the partner work she does with us to show us the original intention of a particular move and also its application as a defense move, which I had not done before, and I found that very helpful in improving my understanding of the form.
My balance has improved enormously, I am more relaxed and focused. And it has improved my core strength.
I like tai chi because it is low impact with minimal stress on joints and the fact that it can be done anywhere.
