Learn the flowing, graceful movements of Taijiquan. Taijiquan has shown to reduce blood pressure, improve balance and even build brain size! Taijiquan looks like slow motion Kung Fu but most people use it as a moving meditation to reduce stress and tension while improving flexibility, leg strength and the flow of “Qi” or life force.

Tuesdays, 11:30 am - 12:30 pm  - Mixed level Taijiquan, open to beginners

Qigong for Health

Join us in a Qigong (pronounced “Chee Gung”) class consisting of simple stretching, range of motion, mindful movements, breathing exercises and a brief stress reducing meditation. Self healing techniques and key acupressure points are included. Qigong is easier than Taijiquan because there are no linked movements to memorize in this style. Each exercise is easy to do and not strenuous. Qigong trains your mind as well as your body; relieving stress while building balanced energy.
