Golden Qi Instructors

Our Golden Qi instructors are committed to providing you the highest level of training in the Golden Qi program. Our program was created through our passion for helping those who cannot exercise while standing, to enjoy the Tai Chi experience.  Both Bill and Sue McCabe have been instrumental in creating this curriculum.  Golden Qi provides people with a gentle way to exercise, even if they use a wheelchair, or have physical, balance, or cognitive challenges.  This includes those who have not exercised in a long time or who are in physical rehabilitation.

Bill and Sue McCabe have been teaching Tai Chi under the auspices of Grandmaster Taningco for the last 6 years.

Bill and Sue’s enthusiasm is a great asset to the program.  Their willingness to work closely with people shows that they truly care about what they do.  Giving service is what makes a great leader in any field of endeavor. Their high energy level and encouragement are very contagious.  They are very positive outgoing people.

Grandmaster Taningco, Sue, and Bill built the Golden Qi program on their past accomplishments. They are committed to helping you establish this fun and healthy exercise program at your facility.  Golden Qi will add new and challenging exercises to your activity program.

The TAMA Golden Qi team is honored to share this knowledge with you.  Call us at 937-254-7035 and ask about our Golden Qi seminars.

Bill McCabe

It has been over ten years since Bill started practicing Tai Chi.  Realizing that during the aging process, we lose flexibility, balance, and strength, Bill learned that Tai Chi was an effective discipline to maintain these physical functions.  These early years provided a strong foundation for natural breathing and the cultivation of internal energy.  Bill learned just how effective Tai Chi is for mental acuity and enjoys the social aspects of practicing Tai Chi in a group.  In 2006, along with his spouse Sue, Bill created their first sitting Tai Chi program and video to help Bill’s aging parents exercise while sitting in a chair.

In 2008 Bill and Sue joined TAMA, looking for a school that could expand on their knowledge of Tai Chi.  At TAMA they learned and practiced the Yang Long Form of Tai Chi Chuan, along with the Tai Chi Straight Sword, Broad Sword, Staff, Two Person, Short Form, and Butterfly Fan Forms.  Tai Chi is a process of continual learning and development.

Bill became a Tai Chi instructor for TAMA in 2010.

In 2014, Bill and his spouse Sue took the original sitting form they developed in 2006 to new heights.  The new program incorporated additional forms of Tai Chi.  This expanded program they named Golden Qi.

Bill is active in Tai Chi programs.  He is a daily practitioner of Tai Chi.  Bill is an enthusiastic participant in the annual World Tai Chi and Qigong Day.  Bill and Sue organized TAMA’s participation in the annual Speaking of Woman’s Health program.  Bill is a participant in Tai Chi demonstrations presented by TAMA.  He teaches Tai Chi for TAMA at the Huber Heights Senior Center, and as a substitute instructor at TAMA, and the Kettering Recreation Center.  He teaches the Golden Qi Instructor Courses at TAMA.  He also teaches Golden Qi at Huber Heights Senior Center and LanePark Adult Senior Living Community.
