Robert (Bob) Teachout has been studying the internal arts of tai chi, qigong, and meditation for over 30 years. In 2001 Bob founded Full Circle Tai Chi to teach and promote the many health benefits of practice. He teaches Yang style tai chi and a wide variety of traditional qigong exercises. His approach to teaching meditation has been influenced by the traditions of Buddhism, Yoga, and contemplative Christianity, although in recognizing the universal nature of meditation, he teaches from a secular perspective. He teaches weekly classes in Lansing, MI and conducts workshops throughout the state.
Bob’s writing on tai chi has been published locally and in the international journals of TAI CHI and The Taijiquan Journal. He also enjoys opportunities to speak publicly on the wide variety of practices, formal and informal, that can foster self-awareness and present moment living.
