Curtis has pursued martial arts since childhood, though he developed a much deeper connection to the practice once he took up Taiji (T’ai Chi) in his 20s. After learning short forms in the Yang and Wudang traditions, curiosity about the subtle energies at play in Taiji shifted his focus to Qigong and classical Chinese medicine. Curtis has studied Qigong under Master Lisa O’Shea (a student of Dr. Yang, Jwing-ming) and Master Zhong Xuechao of Wudang. In 2017 he also began training in Pangu Shengong with Paul Fraser in Asheville, NC. Curtis has also studied Wing Chun and holds a first-degree black belt in American Freestyle Karate.
Curtis lives in Dresden with his wife, Kathryn, where they recently founded Winterbloom Farm, a center for botanical and healing arts focused on Yoga, Qigong, herbalism, and sustainable agriculture.
