About Your Instructor
Master David B. Alexander has had a lifelong involvement with Tai Chi Chuan. His methods enhance health and well-being, and use the dynamic energy that is central to Tai Chi Chuan as a martial art. He received his teaching certification and advanced diploma from the renowned Grandmaster William C.C. Chen.
The teaching approach employed fosters simultaneous health benefits, improved mind / body harmony, stress reduction, and the foundation of sports and martial art skills. This is achieved through Tai Chi Chuan instruction focused on internal connection, self-awareness, body mechanics, and energy movement.
A key principle is that we activate energy not muscles, and as a result the muscles flow freely to accomplish the movement guided by our brain through intention and energy. This focus is excellent for health, as well as for martial arts and all sports.
Master Alexander is also an active psychotherapist and psychoanalyst practicing in Roslyn Heights, Long Island, and via online teletherapy. Read more here.
