My Story

Jay Stempin, MAE, T'ai Chi Ch'uan Instructor, Reiki Master/Teacher



I've been a T’ai Chi Ch’uan practitioner since 1998. I am a certified T'ai chi teacher. I first learned Cheng Man-Ch’ing’s Yang-style in Nevada City, California. Several years later I switched to the Tso style of T'ai Chi. T’ai Chi has been a daily part of my life and I look forward to sharing this ancient internal art with students in need of grounding and gaining a sense of identity, building inner core strength, peace, balance, and coordination. Reiki Master: Began practicing Reiki in 2013 and continue to evolve spiritually. School Teacher: Special education teacher with 20 years experience. AUTHOR: Freelance writer, having published numerous press releases and feature stories. To keep my creative writing drive alive and ticking, I'm near completion of my young-adult fantasy fiction manuscript.  LIFE is about active balance...and a little juggling adds Zen-like zest to life. Remember to laugh daily and practice healing arts--the elixir of youth.
