About Stan Cohen – Founder of ChiForLiving
Stan Cohen – Teaching and loving it.
A student of movement, a fanatic about coordination sports like Frisbee and ping pong and practitioner of Tai Chi has led to my current path.
A visual artist and intuitive thinker, and of course a Gemini, my creative mode always lends to a unique style of interpretation and application with any project I take on. The decision to develop my movement program follows that trend.
Developing a program to teach older adults to get back in touch with their bodies, increase their physical capabilities and live a more vital lifestyle opened a lot of possibilities for creative thinking.
Mainly, how do you take a combination of Martial Arts, everyday life activities, movement theory, meditation, fun, and traditional exercise and create a program that older adults could not only do, but want to come to for more.
The main aspect of what makes the programs I create work is the teaching method and style. Mixing in my interpretation of movement technique, presentation and personality has turned into a successful program that is generating a lot of success with the older adults taking participating in classes.. Refined by participant feedback and results over the last two years, my program has turned into a project with huge potential for growth.
Since 2007, working with seniors ranging from those with Alzheimer’s to fully active seniors has helped me tune the movements and learn how to reach and teach ChiForLiving™ to just about any group, based on their needs, abilities and expectations.
No matter whom I teach, or show my methods, it thrills me knowing I am helping make a positive change in their lives.
Who do you know that would like to increase their independence and live with increased joy?
