OUR TAI CHI INSTRUCTOR

Adrian VanKeuren


Adrian VanKeuren began taking Tai Chi classes in 2016 at the Tai Chi Dojo in Winchester, VA to try to help deal with the painful symptoms of multiple chronic illnesses that she suffered from for almost 10 years. (Chronic Lyme, babesia, bartonella, fibromyalgia, POTS, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.) Soon after beginning Tai Chi practice, Adrian’s symptoms begin improving, and she realized that the more she practiced, the better she felt. She sought extra practice time with her Master, Victor Franco, whom was a personal student of Grand Master Jou Tsung Hwa.

Once he saw her passion for Tai Chi, Franco took her on as a personal student, and they spent many hours together each week practicing Tai Chi, discussing the principals and philosophies, and the numerous health benefits. In 2017, Adrian began to work with the beginners that came to class, even putting together a welcome packet for the Dojo with the basic principles in it.   After over 500 hours of combined classroom and teaching hours, Adrian was appointed an Associate Instructor at the Tai Chi Dojo and awarded her Teaching Certification.

Now, Adrian is looking forward to teaching her own Tai Chi classes, and bringing the numerous health benefits of Tai Chi to more people. Since Tai Chi was such an important part of Adrian’s recovery from multiple chronic illnesses, she is uniquely suited to bringing the true health benefits of daily Tai Chi practice to the public.
