My 13yr old tried Master Alex's Tai Chi class and immediately wanted to join. After his weeks of class we have seen a vast improvement in his mindfulness. He has learnt how to focus and has developed a better sleeping pattern. Learning to let his mind control his body, expressing being more relaxed and in control. He now knows what it really means to focus, and that is wasn't just looking deep into the problem with his eyes and mind. My son has asked to continue with another session, and we are certainly for it. Our results are incredible! Thanks to Harmony! - F Smith
Master Choi is a remarkable man with insight I have not encountered before. While meditation is the term used, this is far more. His presence and energy cuts through to your essence. The sense you will have is that he is somehow centered in the great universe yet directly connected and focused upon you personally. You will love, admire and respect this man, and feel yourself immensely blessed to work with him as he quietly, softly yet powerfully cuts to the crux and essential points.
We can all benefit from even a single session which I would heartily recommend, especially leaders and captains of industry. Yet, he is just as valuable in personal relationships and can help you enhance all aspects of your life. There is no one else to whom I refer with the title “Master”. Few people in life truly enrich and inspire but Master Choi is one. - Dawn Races
My daughter started one-on-one healing sessions with Master Lee about 3 months ago and we are thrilled with the results! Her grades have gone from B's to A's, her diet choices have improved significantly, and so has her willingness to socialize and go outside to play. When the doctor told us to change her eating and activity levels, we tried many approaches but we were micro managing everything. We tried a similar approach for school work, but it really stressed her out. We're so glad we found this support to address the root of the issue that seemed to be causing her so much distraction and complication. She is much more confident in the face of difficulty now. As a fifteen year educator and mother of twins, I highly recommend this approach! The level of care at this center is unsurpassed anywhere.- Lisa B. (Math Teacher)
It is an awesome place beyond regular yoga class! I feel my body and soul refreshed and healed during and after class. My body and mentality have been much more strengthen over the years. All the staff are very nice and humble. I would strongly recommend Harmony Meditation class to those who want to be naturally healed and fortified with their body and soul. - J. Kim
I was very impressed with my sessions at Harmony Meditation. My first introductory session was a one on one with Lee. It lasted one hour. It combined exercise and meditation. It was more than others have offered. I also met with Alex the Grand Master. Over all I was very surprised and satisfied with the encounter. It gave me a new perspective. As a result I signed up for ten meditation sessions. - Joe Ascone
Seriously good place to get your meditation on. This feels like healing the whole time your there. Instructors are genuinely interested in your well being. A must if you need some peace in your life. - Anthony
I finally found the right place for true meditation and healing.
I experienced an amazing healing process of my body and mind after one-on-one sessions with Master Choi. Now I feel much more stronger and brighter than before both on the inside and outside. Master Choi is a really great teacher. I am truly grateful for his wonderful support and guidance. - JW Lee
1:1 sessions at Harmony Meditation worked really well for my husband to help manage stress, sleep better and become a healthier and happier person. - Valeria Harrington

feeling my body, feeling my breath, feeling more aware, how strong and weak the body can be mentally and physically – G. K
I attended a BrainHaveFun workshop after attending classes for just about a year. I walked away excited that I picked up skills and approaches in advancing my meditative practices to further increase mental focus, energy, reducing stress and overall well-being that was tailored just to me. Even if you are beginner, it’s still worth attending a workshop to fast track anyone's development.

I have many symptoms of relaxation, calmness and sweet dreams thanks to your healing. I realized that after such a strong intense healing I need to rest. I will be back as soon as possible for the second healing.Lots of gratitude for your healing presence for me. I am listening your CDS to keep my mind refreshed.

I came to my first class in Sep. not knowing what to expect only because I have been quite stiff and immobile for 8 years. I had a car accident in 2008. I already had spinal stenosis but the accident made it a million times worse. My neck is fused from C-4 through C-7. I have tried everything. Then my sister told me of an 80years old woman who took Taichi has more balance than she ever had. I am writing this after having 5 private sessions with G. Master Choi and can say the improvement is astonishing! I have a new lease in life. I have 7 granddaughters that I will be looking forward to having more fun with. They are used to always having to give me an arm to hold on to or they say "Grandma, be careful the ground is bumpy. don't fall!!" Now they will be pleasantly surprised. Thank you G.Master Choi for all your patience with me. I have a new kick in my step. I want to shout it from the mountain tops.
- Bette DiLollo (Grandma, Business Owner, 69)
I am grateful to have found G.Master Choi as a result of a car accident 5 years ago. He is honest, kind and sincere and his meditation practices get to the initial problem. It doesn't take many words for him to understand you because I feel his healing energy just by his presence. He is clearly professional as you walk away from each practice feeling improved.
– Barbara (Traveler and Mother, 60)
I am a new student, taking both Yoga and Tai-Chi classes with meditation. Even after only a few classes, and doing some home practice, I have dropped my stress level by at least an order of magnitude and have much more physical energy. The instructors are super patient with me because of my age and push me just enough to gain the benefits that I need. The center is super clean with no funky gym-like smells with easy access and plenty of off-street parking. Overall… highly recommended and reasonable priced.
- George Bird (a man old enough to know and young enough to be wiser, IT Director)
I love this tai chi/yoga/meditation studio! The couple that runs it are great teachers and very helpful and kind. I had never done tai chi before and I really enjoy the moves: they are deliberate yet challenging. I would really recommend anyone interested in wellness or just in getting a fun work out to try one of their classes. Also the studio is beautiful and clean so it's a nice environment for class.
- Julie Madan (Graduate Student, 24)
I can't begin to tell you how much tai chi has helped me. The Harmony Meditation center has become a place to relax and meditate. I am always greeted with a kind smile and then i proceed to the exercise room for my warm-ups. The exercises appear to be very easy but, many are not. It is very important to perform the movements correctly and when i do not, I am instructed to alter them. I am always told the correct way with a smile or funny phrase. I have arthritis in my hips and I was told by a surgeon that I would need a hip replacement in about a year. I am about 50% better and I credit my improvement with Harmony Meditation.

"Great Experience - Also very helpful over and above the time allotted. Glad I stopped in and inquired, will be back every time I arrive in Westfield."
– Judith Norton (Psychologist)
"When the student is ready the teacher will appear" I have sought spiritual growth and enlightenment through new age teachings of the wisdom of ancient texts. While I found the concepts to be full of universal truths, I could not find an adequate vehicle to put them into practice. When I walked into Harmony Meditation in Westfield, for an initial consultation and assessment I felt my search was over. My mind, body and soul are all beginning to come together as one in unison with the oneness of all life. I have been released from emotional and physical pains that I have carried the majority of my life in under a month. With the guidance I am receiving at Harmony Meditation Center I am being renewed. I am becoming the person I am meant to be...open, loving, peaceful, centered and connected to all that is life. All I have to do is show up in sincerity and humility and trust...it is not as easy as it sounds but the rewards are miraculous.

Due to my day-time work using computer for long hours and the stress comes with the job, I used to have headache, neck/shoulder soreness and lower back pains constantly. By participating your classes 2-3 times a week, I felt a lot relaxed and could actually enjoy a restful night sleep without suffering much pain. Now, my headache is completely gone and my pains have reduced to a minimal level. I could never get the same results when I tried physical therapy before joining the center. Mentally, I also notice some changes. I begin to view things more openly and get less bothered by my high stress job. Practicing meditation certainly helps my whole body relax and allows me to have a clear mind and receive light. It is such a wonderful feeling. I am glad that I have the opportunity to be a member of your center and can explore various exercises to continue improve my mental and physical health.

Dear Grand Master Choi, I'd like to let you know something that I've been meaning to tell you before. You have the best workout around. I am never bored with your classes. They are always challenging, fun, and you keep them fresh and exciting. Thank you!
I have a worrisome mind that keeps me anxious constantly and not sleeping well. When I leave a Harmony Meditation class I realize that I haven’t been bothered by anything but being relaxed for 60 minutes. It is such a treat for my mind that I have been able to go home and fall in sleep quickly and sleep better. As well as helping with my sleep, the classes have helped me physically too! I have always done workouts with running and rowing. However, I had injured my back years ago with back pain occurred frequently. Harmony Meditation enables me to stretch and relax tight muscles. I feel my back is being healed. Harmony Meditation has definitely improved my mental and physical health, which has helped me to better handle life’s ups and downs."
– Hai. (Principle Engineer)
During the last half year the Harmony Meditation Center has become my personal retreat. I was struggling to grasp my overwhelming emotions-anger, worries and fears-without any hope until I started to take regular classes and periodic private sessions with Grand Master Johwa. Under his guidance I learned to accept those emotions as a being a part of me without imposing any judgement. I found long missing peace with myself during the sessions. Master Choi helps me to bring this peace and control also to my family and professional life, which allows me to think clearly and make the choices necessary for the growth on an individual and professional level.

Her PhD thesis begins with words from Laotse that deeply resonated with her. Trained as a biochemist, she utilized primarily left-brain dominated scientific rationale in her professional and personal life. Inspired by ‘ZEN Method’ she now applies the principle of ‘Mu Wii’ appreciating abundance in life and change as development opportunity. Through the practice of Harmony Meditation she finds balance, meaning and purpose every day. She is also a trainee of the ‘Think Bigger’ Coach program to develop Mental Self Defense, which allows her to deeply experience the universally applicable principles of ‘HwanDo’ and apply them in her professional life as a manager.
Share the happiness for growth on a personal, emotional and spiritual level, she engages in during her Meditation session.
Having an inquisitive scientific mind and not being satisfied by conventional wisdom is what led Olga Yee, Ph.D., to look for answers from within. After several years of practicing Harmony Meditation and applying the principles of mental self-defense, she is reaping the benefits in many aspects of her life – personal, professional, social. She credits the practice with higher emotional intelligence, allowing to free up resources for innovative thinking, heartfelt communication, and steady progression towards Bigger Self.
