More about Tai Chi & QigongTai Chi and Qigong are self-care practices which enhance Body, Mind and Spirit unification. These gentle Chinese exercises improve relaxation skills, mental focus, and physical alignment. Research has shown that regular practice is beneficial for balance, stress reduction, strengthening the immune system, joint concerns (arthritis), building endurance, flexibility, and alleviating chronic conditions. Classes are offered in 2 styles:

  1. T'ai Chi Fundamentals® (TCF) offers a simplified, systematic approach for mastering T'ai Chi basics that maintains the integrity of traditional form and principles. The program introduces components of T'ai Chi practice that foster health of mind, body and spirit. This program can serve as a complete exercise program and can provide solid basic training for those who wish to progress to the more complex forms of traditional T'ai Chi. As of 2015 we now have new trainings, books and videos for all of the Seated, Walker and Side support versions of the Tai Chi Fundamentals Adapted program. See brochures below.
  2. Traditional Yang Style T'ai Chi forms incorporate complex movement patterns throughout the entire sequence which have martial applications. This traditional Form developed by Master Cheng Man-Ch’ing is expertly designed to massage the whole acupuncture energy system of one’s body. T'ai Chi principles promote harmony in human interactions and as students progress the element of Tui Shou (Sensing hands or Push hands) will be introduced. Tui Shou is a gentle way of practicing the martial applications of T'ai Chi. It incorporates aspects of letting go of one’s ego to better know oneself and for successful conflict resolution.

All classes include Qigong and Meditation exercises.
