Hi friend, thank you for your interest in Tai Chi.
Tai Chi has been practiced worldwide for thousand of years and can be traced back to the early 17th century in most Chinese cultures. There are many different styles of Tai Chi that derive from Fu, Chen, and Yang styles. What I teach to my students is a Tibetan form of the Yang style.
Tai Chi in short can be referred to as "Meditation in Motion". I teach simple slow movements that when combined as one, create a series of forms.
My name is Heather Grzech. I am originally from Baltimore, MD where I practiced martial arts at The Academy of Traditional Asian Fighting Arts under Guru Tua Dr. Scott Sobel.
My father Kevin, also a student of ATAFA, and I have been training in martial arts together for many years. In August 2018 we were promoted to Guru in PentJak Silat by Dr. Andre KnustGraichen.
We also teach Tai Chi together at times.
I started my training in Tai Chi 2016 and was given permission to teach our style in 2018. I started visiting Myrtle Beach in 2006 and instantly fell in love with the area. Fast forward to 2017 I decided to make MB my permanent residence. I knew Tai Chi would be perfect for the community bringing people together by sharing the numerous benefits of what it has to offer.
Tai Chi brings me immense peace of mind and I have a great love for it. My goal is to share this in the hopes of getting people to move at a very low impact. Tai Chi is for everyone of all ages and requires no equipment. Just like most things is does require consistency to achieve good results. I do recommend to come with an open mind and patience.
