Ralph Perona bio photo
  • Departments:Community & Continuing Education Instructor

Ralph has been practicing tai chi, chi gong, and other related arts for 20 years. He enjoys helping students explore and integrate the many different qualities of tai chi practice to experience the benefits of this practice. Ralph emphasizes balancing the physical and mental aspects of tai chi to develop strength, balance, flexibility and peaceful vitality.

Ralph graduated with an MS from UW's School of Public Health in the early 1990s and is an environmental toxicologist in his professional life.

When Ralph isn't working or practicing tai chi, he can be found spending time with his wife and daughters, and rambling in the Cascades and Chuckanuts with friends, family, and a happy trail dog named Rusty.
