Our Story



Sara began studying martial arts at the age of 8.  She began her formal, mentored training in both internal and external styles under Master Nick Scrima (OH/FL), coach to numerous national and international martial arts champions.  Since 1996, Sara has been training with her mentor Master José Johnson (PA) who has been internationally recognized as one of the top 100 extraordinary Chinese Martial Artists in the world.  She has also studied with Master Peter Warr (UK). Sara has been influenced by Master Pat Rice (VA), Master Nick Gracenin(DC), Dr. Jay Dunbar (NC), Master Su Zifang (CA), Master Sam Masich (Canada/Europe), Master Liang Shouyu (Canada), and Professor Li Deyin (China).  Sara continues to study with many other leading T’ai Chi Masters and Grandmasters from the US, China, Asia, Europe, and Canada.

"I am so grateful for Ms. Gellhorn's teaching. Her commitment to the study, practice and play of Taiji is infectious. I've been studying with her for three years now. As a Clinical Exercise Physiologist and Massage Therapist, I never hesitate to recommend her classes. She is always  friendly, relaxed and conscientious about her teaching."  -- D. Lopez

 “The philosophies and discipline that ground our training are also the underpinnings of our everyday lives. Whether we are musicians, scientists, waiters, CEOs, or accountants, the fundamentals of relationships and the search for a balanced life are universal.  Finding a balanced life requires effort and conscious decisions.  We need to know how and when to go with flow, what it means to ground ourselves, and how to store and spend our energy with efficiency and grace. T’ai Chi helps us develop the skills and knowledge to enhance our lives.” -- Sara Gellhorn
