About Your Tai Chi & Qi Gong Teachers:

Sandra Helfand

I am a retired Biology teacher who lives on 3 peaceful acres in Bloomfield , a Wonderful spot for my gardens and pets and me. Since retiring, I have become passionate about aging well and living a healthy lifestyle.

Two years ago I started to share some of that  with volunteer work coaching balance classes to seniors through office of the aging. Which I still do. That lead to them having me trained to  teach Tai Chi for arthritis, which  is becoming a new passion. It is SO rewarding to share this wonderful art form with others and I hope you will both benefit from and enjoy it as much as I do teaching and practicing it.
