Tai Chi logo

T’ai Chi & Qigong  Known as meditation in motion, T’ai chi improves physical health, calms the mind, and lifts the spirit.  This ancient martial art combines  breath, with flowing movement and postures that increase balance, strength, focus, energy, and grounding. Tai Chi is taught as a progressive series in six- or eight-week sessions. Students will meet one day each week during the series.

The gentle rhythmic movements of Qigong reduce stress, build stamina, increase vitality and improve function of the immune system.  “Qi” is life energy and “gong” means work. Qigong uses the same  fundamental principles of T’ai Chi, but is available on a drop-in basis. Meetings are each Tuesday 12:15pm-1:00pm.

Wear loose clothing, bare/socked feet or flat shoes for Tai Chi and Qigong.  Tai Chi is independent of the regular class schedule.  Open session are listed on the Events page.

“Allow yourself the freedom to grow and expand. Form the habit of saying yes to your own potential. Take time to think of all the reasons why you can and will embrace new possibilities and adventures.”
