Corporate and Workplace Wellness Program
"Making Great Places to Work Even Better"
Many people take great pride in their careers--striving to be successful employees, managers, and executives who create a thriving and productive workplace. Unfortunately, the workplace is also full of stressors--deadlines, rapidly paced projects, budget and personnel decisions, and department politics-that get in the way of a thriving and productive workplace and can create long-term problems.
For thousands of years, T'ai Chi has been used to counteract tension, anxiety, and stress, and now Dr. David Clippinger, Director of Still Mountain T'ai Chi and Chi Kung, LLC, has developed an extensive and innovative program specifically designed for businesses based upon simple physical exercises, breathing techniques, and mindfulness strategies that not only remedy modern work-site issues but provide the tools to make sure that your place of work remains a "great" place to work.
Still Mountain’s Corporate and Workplace Program is a unique blend of easy-to-learn T'ai Chi exercises, breathing practices, and strategies for making interaction with others a productive and rewarding experience, and it is ideal for employee workshops, manager training sessions, and executive and board retreats.
In essence, this program offers practical solutions to enhance all facets of your workplace environment.

What some of Still Mountain’s Corporate and Workplace Wellness Program’s Clients say about the program:“I think [that the program] is great to teach stress management in the workplace. This workshop made me feel better and motivated to learn more about Tai Chi. I really enjoyed learning the forms and being able to repeat them. I also liked that the techniques were simple enough to do at home or in the workplace.” Mary C.
“The program was excellent, especially for management personnel. Actually it would be beneficial to anyone.” L. Knestaut
“The techniques shown are really relaxing and I felt great afterward.” P. Stern
“The forms were easy to follow and it was a great relaxation time. [Dr. Clippinger] also [is] funny which helps with feeling comfortable.” S. Kaczkowski
“I would definitely recommend this program to other businesses as a stress reducer and also as a pain reliever for arthritic or joint pain. I learned stress relief and management, relief of my back and sciatica, and how to slow down and realize stress during the course of a work day!” Lynn S.
“I have found the Tai Chi classes to be very informative and the movements are easy but surprisingly effective.” Bill Haubach
“The weekly T’ai Chi sessions [at UPMC] have been incredibly helpful. I’ve been able to relax, improve my running, even reduce my blood pressure. It’s something I look forward to each week.” Candace Belako
“I went to the Tai Chi classes because I have a bad back and lots of pain. I am limited in what I can do. Tai Chi is soft and graceful, and it gets rid of my pain for a few hours.” Carol McGrath
“I have asthma and practicing T’ai Chi has helped me with learning how to relax and slow down my breathing.” Linda Levine
“The benefit that I have experienced since taking the T’ai Chi Class is my breathing is much better. I have recently started jogging and I can really tell that I don’t get winded as easily as I used to before I started taking this class.” Jodi (Yelena) Porterfield
“Tai Chi [at UPMC] on Fridays has allowed me to set aside a time that I can center and ground myself, allowing for a healthy transition to the weekend. I can tell in the weeks that I have been taking classes, I am able to be more relaxed at work and home.” Paul W.
