Margaret Chesson, PT-GCS, RYT, graduated from UNC Chapel Hill in Physical Therapy in 1976.

She has worked most of her PT career in orthopedic or geriatric physical therapy, working

therapist and yoga teacher who specializes in chronic pain management. Most recently she successfully

completed the 220 hours of Yoga Teacher Training with Body, Mind and Spirit of Chapel Hill.

Margaret also credits the nurturing and attentive tutelage from the instructors of Triangle Yoga with the

development of her own personal practice. It is Margaret's desire to share her enthusiasm for the health

Barbara teaches all forms step by step so that students can learn the movements at their own speed without feeling awkward. As participants progress, they practice the foundational principles of Tai Chi and Qigong and begin to explore deeper levels of self-healing. Barbara would like to see people in the United States practicing in parks and gardens just like people in China, where they are part of the landscape. A relaxed class atmosphere and gentle music provide inspiration for people of all fitness levels to improve their health and cultivate the universal energy of Qi!
