Tai Chi and Qi Gong

An Ancient Art Perfect for Modern Times

Tai Chi Chuan and Qi Gong are related exercise systems from China. They have been  developed through the ages by those interested in self-cultivation and moving  in a natural and relaxed way. They function as a meditation, a martial art, a profound way to  build and maintain good health and develop self-awareness, and are classical forms of movement. Our Tai Chi Form is a long choreographed series of moves and our Qi Gong exercises are simple moving and stationary postures.

Moving comfortably, from the soles of your feet to the top of your head, from the base of your spine to the tips of your fingers. Qi flows freely, abundantly , like a river, like clouds, sky above, earth below, relaxed and at ease.
