I began taking classes at Master Gohring's Tai' chi and Kung Fu in Austin, TX in 2003. At that time I had to literally drag myself in the door using a walker. I had numerous serious health problems including crippling back pain and was severely depressed.
I could feel an immediate difference in my state of mind each time I entered the door to the school. Although I could not hardly participate in classes at first, the support I received from the staff and my fellow students gave me the courage to keep coming to and participating in classes.
After a few weeks I not only felt better mentally and emotionally but physically as well. Gradually I began to improve more and more. If I missed a class I noticed that I felt "not quiet right" until I made it back to class. After a few months I was able to trade the walker for a cane.
As I continue to study at Master Gohring's Tai' Chi and Kung Fu I continue to improve. To date, I no longer use a cane, my endurance and balance have improved greatly, I have lost significant weight, reduced the number of medications that I have to take and generally feel healthier, happier and more confident.
In summary, my experience at Master Gohring's Tai' Chi and Kung Fu has completely transformed my life for the absolute best!
