      Al Loren eminent student
    • Al, our Tai Chi teacher, is one of the kindest & most caring person I have met. He teaches us balance & that is the most important thing at our age group. I have taken two years of Tai Chi now & only wish we could have him come here more than two days a week. When my husband was in the hospital for ten days, Al visited him almost every day. Thanks Al, for being so caring.
      Sylvia Farber
