  1. After helping out Tina for the last 2 weeks at the Casa de Karma in Mezcala, I have moved into an apt. near the lake. We will begin Tai Ji /Pushing Hands classes at the Chapala Malecon, beginning Monday March 5, every M-W-F, 8-10 AM and 4-6 PM (if there is interest in this late afternoon class) Classes free for 1st two weeks. After that, there will be a Suggestions/Donations box. Cheers!
