      Hi Gary, I’m really sorry that I missed this comment until today! Are you still interested in chi gong lessons? Saturday is our only class, although my husband Sid teaches private lessons. You can call me at 831 325-6293. Thanks, Wendy

    I’m very interested in the Qi Gong class, but to attend would need to have my 6 year old join the class as well. Is there a suggested or recommended age?

      Hi Amy, sorry I didn’t reply sooner. Your comment didn’t appear to me until today. I’d love to have you in class, although a 6 year old might find it very slow moving and boring.I’ve had teenagers in class before. You’re welcome to try it out. Again, so sorry about the delay in answering. Wendy

      Hi Bob, yes, you can just show up on Tuesday. We meet on the path area close to where Oceanview Ave. dead ends at the park. We usually meet around 8:05. See you there.

    This is for my 54-year-old son who lives off Ocean Street at N.

    I’m encouraging him to try Tai Qi, instead of aikido which he finds stressful.

    Where are you located?

      Hi Don, Thanks for your interest. Our classes are at Ocean View Park. It is locate at the end of Ocean View Ave. Ocean View Ave. is just 1 block east of Ocean St., off Broadway. There is a map on my webpage under Class Times, Fees & Office Hours. You need to click on the link. Tai Chi is very gentle and easier than aikido for someone who is 54 (I’m 59). I look forward to meeting him. Wendy

      Thanks for your inquiry. It is approximately 108 moves, more or less. It is known as the Chen Pan-Ling style. You can read more about it on the “About our Founder and Style” page.
