‘I think you have given me an extension of life. I was supposed to die years ago! I do it every day and am particularly inspired by your last line, “BE REALISTIC EXPECT A MIRACLE!” 2013-09-27


“I feel I know you through watching your video for years. I shared it with many of my students. You are inspiring and a great guide.” — 2014-02-10


“Your video is exquisitely done; I just found my purpose in life. I feel like I have come home.” — Jane S.


“The second part is GREAT. I Had no idea the wealth of instruction left to see. It was all deeper explanations on moves and in how/why/what/etc. Absolutely intoxicating!!!” — Christine, 2014-09-17


Am really too excited to keep writing about it, I had to turn it off before the end to calm down. What more can I say?

It was such an honor to get a personal reply from you. I have treasured your DVDs for years. Thanks for blessing our path with your teachings.” — Sharon Sutter, Apr 27, 2012

“...The in-depth warm-ups, acupressure, and Tai Chi program Mr. Johnson has created have greatly helped my condition.”

“This is a well run site, I am very pleased with the exceptional service this site provides. I talked to the owner and he was very helpful and I received a lot of knowledge about this video and possible other purchases. He also explained how to become certified to instruct this program.”

Shopping.com Review - (5 star overall rating)

“Tai Chi for Seniors was one of the best Internet purchasing experiences I've ever had - and I purchase a number of products online.

I found out about Tai Chi for Seniors because I've had four major back surgeries - which if I knew now what I knew then, as many of us say, I wouldn't have opted for the surgeries. I wish I knew about Tai Chi for Seniors earlier. Like five, six years ago.

I'm not officially a "senior." I'm in my early 50's, but the in-depth warm-ups, acupressure, and Tai Chi program have greatly helped my condition.

...If there was a rating system on a scale of 1 to 10 I would have to give this company, product, service and useability a solid 9. 10's to me are perfection and something to strive for but unattainable...so I am very pleased with this product, which has made my daily life better. It's reduced my pain, increased my mobility, and kept me from spiraling ever downward...”

Mark and Sita
Mark explaining the
more profound aspects of
Tai Chi to his daughter, Sita

There are only a handful of Westerners with Mark Johnson's training in so many Chinese disciplines. In addition to Tai Chi instruction, Mark specializes in Chi Kung (which is self healing through movement), Feng Shui (which is the study of the energies of an area), the I Ching (which is China's ancient classic on how things change) and Chinese calligraphy. Mark has integrated these disciplines in creative ways for over 35 years.

He started his Chinese studies in 1970 when he joined the I Ching scholar, Khigh Dhiegh at the Taoist Sanctuary in Los Angeles. During his 4 year stay at the Sanctuary, he studied the I Ching, Taoism, Yang style Tai Chi Chuan and the Chinese language.

In 1974 Mark relocated to Taiwan to study acupuncture. While in residence there, he studied with several highly respected Taoist Masters.  After a year in Taiwan, Mark moved to Malibu, CA where he continued his Taoist training for 8 more years. During that time, he learned 3 Taoist styles of Chi Kung/Tai Chi and the 8 Treasures. He also studied advanced I Ching, Feng Shui, Calligraphy and enhanced his natural healing abilities.

In 1982, Mark taught Tai Chi to Francis Ford Coppola and the cast and crew of the movie “The Outsiders”. While with them, his Chi Kung healing abilities were recognized so he was asked to return to do healing for the cast and crew of “Rumble Fish.” Mark's students included Tom Cruise, Nicolas Cage, Patrick Swayze, Ralph Macchio and many others.

Since 1983, Mark has founded Integral Tao Centers in New Mexico, New York, and California where he now resides. He has been teaching throughout North America for nearly 35 years in a variety of formats: private sessions, on-going community classes, weekend and week long seminars and workshops.  He is a certified Tai Chi tournament judge and has officiated over 50 tournaments in the past 12 years.  He has produced three DVDs: Tai Chi for Healing, Tai Chi for Women and Tai Chi for Seniors which is one of the highest selling Tai Chi DVD in the country. (600,000 so far!)

He is one of the founders of the National Chi Kung Association and is presently on the Advisory Council. He teaches and heals in Marin County and the San Francisco bay area. He is the proud father of his daughter, Sita, and in his leisure time is a pilot and amateur astronomer.
