Bracha Laster

Bracha is an educator, gardener, author, friend, mother, cancer survivor, and Tai Chi Easy enthusiast.  Her approach to teaching as a fitness leader (and as a Professor of Education & reading specialist) is student-centered in an interactive environment. When leading her classes, she adapts to the participants and gently guides across the boundaries of Tai Chi/Qi Gong/Yoga. She uses breathe, posture, self-massage, and movement in gentle and accessible activities that deepen and broaden fitness and health.

Bracha has studied yoga every decade since the 1970s. Since 2016, she has been a student of Cynthia Maltenfort’s, under whose direction she completed the Tai Chi Easy Practice Leader’s Certification from the Institute of Integral Qi Gong and Tai Chi.
