Candice Pong Eno
I have studied with Grandmaster William C. C. Chen (Yang style). I am a certified tai chi instructor for the Arthritis Foundation Tai Chi for Arthritis Program (Sun style) developed by Dr. Paul Lam. I am also on the staff for the Building Better Balance, the Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation and Health Maintenance, the W.I.S.E. – Working Out to Improve Strength & Endurance for Cancer Survivors, and the Y-Fitness for Life programs at the Y.
Madeleine started her T'ai Chi Ch'uan training at Indiana University in 1997. She was drawn to Tai Chi for its stress relief and other health benefits, but soon fell in love with the martial arts applications of this art as well. She enjoys practicing the body mechanics that are emphasized in Grandmaster William C.C. Chen's form and sharing these in the balance, short and sword form classes that she teaches. She was certified in T'ai Chi Ch'uan in 2002 through New School T'ai Chi Ch'uan (Bloomington, IN) and in 2004 through Grandmaster William C.C. Chen (New York). She received her Diploma from Grandmaster Chen in 2014. Madeleine is currently working on her Ph.D. in Human Performance (Motor Learning) so enjoys finding new ways to teach these intricate and graceful movements that everyone can benefit from. Madeleine works at IU as an Instructional technology consultant.
