About Violet Li:
Born in Shanghai, China grew up in Taipei, Taiwan and now residing in St. Louis, Missouri, USA, Violet Li always enjoys workouts. She studied yoga, practiced aerobic dance and taught kickboxing. But it wasn’t until 2000 that she found her true passion in Tai Chi. Since then, she has spent more than 10,000 hours learning the art both in theory and techniques from many instructors including some masters/grandmasters and also interviewed research scientists, doctors and practitioners to understand the benefits of doing Tai Chi. Her knowledge on Tai Chi and Qigong accelerated when she started to take lessons from Grandmaster Chen Zhenglei, the 11th Chen Style Tai Chi lineage holder, one of the top ten martial art masters in China and the honoree of the Cambridge List of the Most Distinguished Chinese People in the World in 1999. She is extremely grateful for the opportunity to receive the private tutelage from Grandmaster Chen so she is able to understand the very profound knowledge of Tai Chi.
