The choices you make today may change the way you feel tomorrow. There are ancient sayings, "The seeds you tend are the ones that grow" and "The best time to plant a fruit tree was twenty years ago, but the second best time is today."
Let us help you plant and tend the seeds of health! Starting today, you can begin this healthful work to help create calmness, relaxation, yet be full of energy, or as our Motto says...........
Refresh, Restore, Reinvigorate!

Through our classes and programs, in Atlanta and across the country, we help by providing tools to “Soothe the Soul”, "Activate the Energy" and create health and positive energy in mind, body and spirit.  “Shoulders down” is a phrase often used by T’ai Chi instructors to encourage students to relax their shoulders, thereby immediately reducing stress and tension in their bodies, and then, in their minds and spirits.  "Shoulders down, energy UP"!


To your health!
