"We are extremely grateful for the Tai Chi demonstration presented to our group on Saturday, January 12, 2019. Attendees enjoyed it and appreciated having the choice of standing or sitting in order to participate in the exercises. The energy you brought to us modeled strength, wisdom, kindness, and gentleness in action. It was lovely! We sincerely hope that you will consider coming back next year for another demonstration. Again, please accept our deep gratitude for a wonderful Saturday experience." by Bonnie, Cat, and Mary Jo with The Fibromyalgia and Related Conditions Support Group volunteer leaders at Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute, Jan 2019.

"I enjoyed your class at Sister Sports Night with my girls scout troop. I like how you explained what we were doing since we were all new to it. I kind of felt clumsy like Po, from Kung Fu Panda, as I was trying to learn but I liked the challenge." by Nicole, February 2019

"Stephanie took time out of her weekend to attend our MDA Adult Networking Support Group. We have a variety of physical abilities within our group. Stephanie was warm and inviting to our sometimes rowdy group. She literally calmed the entire room as she mindfully guided us all through an introduction to Tai Chi. One thing I really appreciated is how often she would augment a movement or change it so that everyone was able to participate at their level. One of our members even commented that he could "feel the energy in the room" despite his limited ability to do the physical movements. Stephanie also was very thoughtful to bring articles regarding Tai Chi and muscular dystrophy for everyone to read. We'd ask her back in a heart beat when we cover this topic again, she was truly a treat for all of us."
