Michael Brandli MS, CMHC, AAP
Michael Started his meditative practices at an early age using mindfulness visualization practices prior to participating in sporting events. His interest in mind-body experiences expanded and grew through his life when he stumbled upon Tai Chi in 2012. He started with beginner videos but needed more. In 2013, he stared studying under Viki Kiman and Paul Drake of the Mountain River Tai Chi School. There he learned Tai Chi in the Tung Family tradition which can trace its roots back to Chang San Feng. In 2016, Michael started teaching Tai Chi at a residential inpatient treatment program for individuals with substance use disorders. He continues to teach at the medical and behavioral health practice he serves.
