Welcome to Heart-mind Tai Chi

At Heart-mind Tai Chi we study and practice Simplified T'ai Chi Ch'uan1, an adaptation of Yang style Tai Chi by Cheng Man-ch'ing. We have the good fortune of a long history of wonderful Tai Chi practitioners and teachers in our style through the St. Louis T'ai Chi Ch'uan Association.
