ABOUT ZACHARY KREBS
Zachary was an indoor student of Michael Vasquez for over 12 years - learning the Huxifa system of Taijiquan alongside the Shibashi Taiji Qigong methods before creating the Open Source Internal Arts practice perspective. His interest and focus are in creating physiological, energetic, emotional, and brain changes required for returning to clear and open flow states. Through creating a natural whole body movement vocabulary, practitioners can gain a deeper sense and connection to their own bodies.
