Margy Emerson

Margy has been practicing for 36 years and teaching for 26. The first six years were spent with Kao Ching-hua, who learned as a girl in pre-Revolutionary China. Margy has had many other teachers since then—Chinese, Korean, and American—and is certified in Dr. Paul Lam’s T’ai Chi for Back Pain and Arthritis. She is the author of Breathing Underwater: The Inner Life of T’ai Chi Ch’uan, A Potter’s Notes on T’ai Chi Ch’uan, and numerous articles. Her DVD is “Wu T’ai Chi, Kao Style.”

Margy teaches in 10- to 13-week terms so students can progress step-by-step through a sequence:

Wu Style—a long traditional form, very circular and internal.
T’ai Chi for Back Pain and Arthritis—a short form based on Sun Style, safe and accessible.
42 Combined Forms—includes movements from all 4 major styles, exuberant and athletic. Experience with another style is required.
Chen 36—the first style to be developed, and the closest to the martial art, it includes fast, explosive movements. Experience with another style is required.

Each class includes traditional warm-ups and a foundational exercise such as qigong, silk reeling, or breath work.

Western clinical trials show T’ai Chi can reduce arthritis pain and bone loss as well as improve balance, mood, blood pressure, the immune system, circulation, and motor control.

Margy approaches T’ai Chi as an exercise that combines mind, body, and spirit.

From Students:

I have taken T’ai Chi with Margy since recovering from back surgery in 2007. Not only has it restored my balance, but T’ai Chi has given me more inner calmness and a sense of well-being. I am in the process of learning my fourth style and I am loving it. ~Doris

Margy is an excellent and kind teacher. Her instruction is very clear and concise and she’s always adding new ideas and techniques. ~Rebecca

Margy’s integrity and sense of humor are what make the complexity of T’ai Chi accessible. ~Kevin & Mary

It’s a kind of moving meditation. I’ve always disliked all forms of physical exercise and even after two years the sense of well-being I experience when I do T’ai Chi still surprises me. ~Allan
