I was after Tai Chi in San Miguel de Allende, and I found Lydia's class in the Park. It turned out to be Tai Chi and more. Through multiple movement and coordination techniques, Lydia helps the student disrupt ingrained societal and habitual brain patterns and encourage increased and sharpened brain function. All of this is conducted in a most pleasant, positive, joyful and supportive class environment that leaves the student spiritually energized and uplifted. Thank you so much for sharing your talents, Lydia!
Lydia is a truly wonderful person who shares an immense lifetime of knowledge in a gifted unassuming way . A radiance , vitality , always with a smile and feeling of fun , a literally glowing example of somebody “ practising what they preach “ . The sessions change , develop , progress , sometimes depending upon my ability on the day , it may be subtle and I might not always be aware at the time . In ten years I don’t believe I have finished a session not feeling a little better than when I started , in every way . The sharing , giving , of such dedicated learning is very special . Lydia it seems continues to progress & develop new ideas , in turn so do our sessions .

Best Tai Chi class I’ve EVER had the pleasure of taking. As a beginner who had only taken a couple of classes with a different instructor before attending I was concerned about how I would ‘fit in’ with students that had been studying with Lydia for quite some time. But my concerns were immediately put at ease with Lydia’s unique and relaxed attitude. Her ‘don’t sweat the details’, ‘no worries, nothing to PERFECT’ approach made the classes fun and totally TRANSFORMATIVE at the same time. I can’t WAIT to return to San Miguel to return to my Tai Chi practice with this REMARKABLE woman! If you are looking for a relaxed, calming, lighthearted and oh so HEALING experience I HIGHLY recommend San Miguel Tai Chi. Just being in the studio is a ZEN experience. Surrounded by a grove of bamboo, in harmony with the natural beauty of the surroundings, practicing under an azure blue sky…I could feel all 7 chakras coming into perfect alignment. BALANCE. Sacred energy. Pure JOY. What more could one possibly require?

I have been working with Lydia's Tuesdays and Thursdays Relax and Renew for two years including rehabbing a fractured hip. At 76 I am more comfortable supple and balanced than before and its fun to work with the fan forms.

I really appreciate the time you took to create this wonderful experience. I can't say anything that would sufficiently express the gratitude I feel for having the opportunity to dance with you in the park. Your class created an oasis in which my body and mind could work together to find balance, to be in the moment, to breathe, to share positive energy and to connect with others. I'm encouraged to continue to practice the movements, including the cleansing, flow of energy and the mind/body clock exercises which I experience as a massage of my entire physical, spiritual, etheric and emotional body. Amazing!
You are a gifted teacher, Lydia. You exude warmth, humor, and an acceptance of all your students that seems to draw everyone together. You create a lovely harmony of movement, color and sound. Your hospitality sends ripples of compassion through the community.
What a joy it has been to meander down cobbled streets and to the park and commune with nature and with you. The hours that I spent in your company, learning from you were some of the loveliest that I enjoyed in San Miguel. Your choice of music was wonderful and just the thing to get the group going and setting the rhythm for the day. I particularly want to thank you for my farewell ceremony. It is something that I will never forget. Here is to a wonderful future for you. I hope we meet again.

Over the past 3 years I was diagnosed with a cyst in the right wrist, as they had trouble moving and make my activities, causing pain. My attending physician tell me that this alone could fix with an operation. Then I found out about tai chi health exercises with Lydia Wong in the Juarez Park and started coming. After 8 months I recovered from my wrist. I no longer have pain and I can make my activity, and the cyst has gone.

This woman is a powerful influence which emits joy and encouragement for well being. If you have had any training in Tai Chi or martial arts, immediately you will find new insights to deepen your training. Lydia is a fine instructor with a disposition everyone enjoys. She exudes kindness, whatever the level of commitment and offers clarity to her students while they move around her. Join her in the Park, and kick start your morning energy with joy.

I’ve long been subject to problems with my balance that are the result of an inner ear disorder. I've practiced yoga for years and, although I've received many benefits from my practice, it hasn't done much to relieve my balance difficulties. I'm amazed that after only two lessons of tai chi I can stand steadily on one leg, then on the other, then do it again. I'm delighted with my new sense of stability.
