Tai Chi Classes & Qigong Classes

Fall Classes: October through November 2022

Tai chi and Qigong are systems that offer amazing health benefits. Within each system are methods for creating wellness and healing illness or imbalances within the body. Many people practice these systems to feel more grounded and achieve a state of harmony. Practice can renew your strength and calm your mind.
Learn the fundamental techniques that help the body feel alive and balanced. Classes focus on breathing techniques, postural alignments and physical movements to aid the flow of “QI” (“chee”), or vital energy.

Students obtain numerous positive changes in their lives by practicing. Tai chi and qigong are two programs with zero side effects.

Join in on tai chi and qigong classes!

Anyone can benefit from practice: these disciplines are known to be helpful for enhancing longevity and the quality of life. The slow, methodical movements along with the breathing methods can enhance pulmonary and cardiovascular fitness, allowing more efficient breathing and fluid flow through the body.

If you are rehabilitating, the slow, conscientious movements and techniques of tai chi and qigong can help recovery. Both disciplines promote aspects of flexibility and strength.

Both tai chi and qigong practices are great ways to help a person relax, refocus, and reenergize.

What is Tai Chi?
TAI CHI (pronounced “tie-jee”) is a centuries-old Chinese exercise program that promotes good health and balance. It is a series of slow, gentle movements, done in a specific order to facilitate energy flow, fitness, relaxation and focus. Doing tai chi provides multiple health benefits.
What is Qigong?
QIGONG (“chi kung”) is an ancient art form that integrates breathing techniques, postural alignments and physical movements to aid the flow of QI (“chee”), or vital internal energy, and promote self-healing. Everyone can benefit from the practice of qigong, regardless of ability, age, or physical condition.
