I've been doing basic Iyengar yoga for about 12-13 years, and have been thinking about adding Tai Chi to the mix. I'm dealing with neurological issues and getting older.

I work in Santa Clara, CA and don't want to drive too far during the week. Any good studios or instructors in the area ? Any thoughts on what to look for / run from ?

Thanks for any insights !

Bad news is that Sturgeon's Law (90% of everything is crap) applies double to martial arts and triple to "internal" arts like Tai Chi.

Good news is you live near one of the two or three best cities in the U.S. for finding very high quality instruction.

It's been over a decade since I was seriously involved in Chinese martial arts, so some of my advice may be a bit out of date, but I was pretty serious about it at one time.

Thinking about it, a lot of the advice I have to give (especially about what to avoid) is probably going to offend some people, so I'll send it via PM.
