I have been engaged in well-being and bodywork therapies for over 50 years. Concurrently I had a career in various high tech software and software management positions in Silicon Valley. I retired from technology in 2004 and subsequently opened an award winning spa in Mountain View with two other like-minded people. In 2009 we closed that and I have focused on T’ai Chi Chih and other movement arts culminating in 2010, in my accreditation to teach T’ai Chi Chih.
In 2017 I was accredited as a Seijaku teacher and continue to introduce Seijaku to my classes.
Since my accreditation I have taught and co-taught T’ai Chi Chih with my wife Darlene, and I continue to support her endeavors to broaden the reach of T’ai Chi Chih to many groups of people. Darlene is an accredited nurse and certified gerontological nurse. She was accredited in TCC in 2001 and for Seijaku in 2002. Darlene has taught from 2002 onward at various hospices, Kaiser, and several senior centers.
Darlene and I produced a DVD on seated T’ai Chi Chih for people with spinal cord injuries. This was a special grant from the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation through Dr. Kazuko Shem of the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center. The results of a study using this DVD were subsequently presented at the Academy of Spinal Cord Injury Professionals (ASCIP) 2011 Conference and the Brain Injury Conference – Contemporary Forums, San Francisco, “Seated T’ai Chi: Physiologic Impact & Outcomes (September 30, 2011) by Dr. Shem and Darlene Karasik.
I am currently teaching an online T’ai Chi Chih (TCC) class via Zoom on Thursday mornings 9:30 PST.
