“Tai Chi has been passed on from generation to generation until my father”

Our tai chi class meets every Saturday at 1 pm at their third floor studio in Pantip Plaza, having resumed two weeks ago with social distancing protocol and other corona precautions in place. Tai chi is a form of body/mind/breath discipline that my teacher Aum's family of Tibetan, Chinese and Thai lineage has done for generations. I have been doing tai chi in Chiang Mai first with Aum's mother, then her sister Julie who currently teaches qigong classes, and now Aum herself. Of all the meditative practices I've done--including Zen Buddhist zazen (or sitting meditation), walking meditation and yoga--tai chi resonates with me most. It partakes of gentle, dance-like movements that, Aum explains, is rooted in a martial arts component. Almost always, I feel better in body and mind and spirit after class. Aum is a youthful master. Please contact Aum if you're interested in taking classes.

ตอนแรกที่ตัดสินใจมาเรียน ไทชิ เพื่อต้องการมาออกกำลังกาย แต่พอมาเรียนแล้ว ได้อะไรมากกว่าที่คิด นอกจากได้ออกกำลังกายแล้ว ยังได้เป็นการฝึกสมาธิ ทำให้มีสติและรู้จักการ รักษาสมดุล ในการใช้ชีวิต รู้สึกประทับใจมากๆค่ะ ที่ได้มาเรียนที่นี่

I have taken Tai Chi classes from both Julie and Aum, and they are both very fine teachers. I will only review Aum because most of my classes have been with her. In one word, she is fantastic. Let me try to explain in some detail. What makes her an unusually gifted and superb teacher is a unique talent to allow the student the space and possibility to arrive at the combination of form, breath, and chi almost on his/her own, but within the structure of instruction. This talent is exceptional, especially in one so young. Here gentle, low key demeanor belies the significance of what is actually taking place. And sometimes one is actually surprised at the result. I am always looking forward to going to class; always feel energized and refreshed afterward, even though it involves a considerable expenditure of energy. She makes me want to do Tai Chi. She might do that for you too.

You will love taking lessons from this family...they have been teaching tai chi and qi gong and kung fu for generations. I look forward to class every week with Aum. She is such a patient and good teacher. She has won many competitions since she was a little girl. She is kind and a joy to be around. Come give it a try!
