At our Center, we take great honor in sharing this ancient practice. With intensive training and years of experience, our teachers bring an unparalleled knowledge to every class. Once the foundational integrity is strong, the transformational power this method offers is limitless.

Tai Chi

We offer an exquisite method of Tai Chi from the North of China. For twenty nine years, Rick Powell has studied with Master Yen Hoa Lee, the descendent of this method. From this dedication, he offers the integrity of the lineage and a deep understanding of the subtleties in each form.

Upcoming Events

We host international teachers including, Sianna Sherman, Desiree Rumbaugh, and Dr. Douglas Brooks, for weekend workshops and intensives. In addition, we bring in many other great teachers, scholars, healers and musicians to inspire and enhance our practices.


Reviews From Our Community

Since studying at From the Heart, I have truly come into “living” yoga beyond the mat. The overall mind/body/spirit connection has not only become very real and made me more aware on all levels of my own personal growth, but has also enhanced my connection to community and the world around me. I am more grounded, peaceful, observant, grateful and authentic.
