David Swiniarski, Instructor

After studying Tae Kwon Do for two years, David started independently practicing Tai Chi while his kids were growing up. As he grew in his practice he found Great Bay Tai Chi and started his study of Classical Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan (Taijiquan) with Great Bay Tai Chi instructor David Bodoh. It has been 13 years since David began the journey as a life-long student. During this time David has studied the Classical Yang Style Long Form with Paul Mahoney, David Bodoh, Marna Badavas, Austin Murray and others. His practice has included Push Hands, Taijiquan martial applications, Yang Style Matching Set, Qigong, and, more recently, he has added Yang Short Form. He began helping Marna teach the Saturday class in 2019 and really enjoys working with new people. David lives in Byfield, MA with his wife, Amy, and their two kids in college.
