Class Descriptions

Qigong and Inner Power Qigong classes concentrate on optimal health, longevity, vitality and healing the body and emotional mind. The exercises reduce stress and improve the practitioners' overall health and sense of well-being. Exercises can be done seated, standing or lying down, thus, they are an excellent practice for those who are recovering from surgery illness or injury as well as those who want to maintain and improve their health.

Tai Chi Easy™ classes combine movements with meditation, bringing balance, harmony and alignment to the body and mind.  The Tai Chi Easy™5 movement form that makes it easy, beneficial and fun -- right away.  Students learn beautiful movement practices designed to emphasize the cultivation of inner strength, improve balance, calm the mind and restore the body to its natural state of health.

Tai Chi Easy Level 2:  We add 4 more movements to Tai Chi Easy to practice Tai Chi 9.  We also practice Wudang Tai Chi, a beautiful 18 movement form from the Wudang Mountains, the birthplace of Tai Chi.  Not recommended for people who have no Qigong or Tai Chi experience.

Qigong/Tai Chi classes are a relaxed combination of the best of Qigong and simple Tai Chi forms.
