Shaz Bamasi


Registered Nurse in the field of emergency nursing from Binghamton, NY, USA.

As an initiative of the local health department and through the support of local health care organization, I became a certified instructor in Tai Chi for Arthritis program in June 2015. As a result of my daily practices, I have already begun to experience its many benefits, and so have the participants in my classes.

Tai Chi is a life-long journey and though I have learned much since becoming certified, but there is much more yet to be acquired. I am committed to this life-altering journey and hope that you will join me in this endeavor by enrolling in my classes.

Thank you for the opportunity to share this program with you.
