Taichi Qigong began from the essential 13 movements in Tai Chi Chuan.
We take these basic postures and practice it on the compass, moving in eight directions but standing in nine directions. The form move through the four cardinal directions five times both left and right sides. All body parts are in harmony with the directions and the movement is continual, allowing the practitioner to sink deeper and deeper into each posture and breath.
After this initial training, the practitioner can choose to commit more fully to the art with monthly workshops by one of the few true Tai Chi Chuan masters in the U.S.. Master H. Won Gim of the Classical Yang Family system will continue to visit and teach us the deeper aspects as we grow our local Taichi community.
TAI CHI QIGONG
YANG FAMILY TAI CHI CHUAN
Bagua Zhang is a true Daoist martial art derived from the unique stepping (tang ni bu) and rotational ever changing movements. Simple, repetitive and flowing movements in qigong allow the practitioner to feel and respond to their inner movement. The body is relaxed but the postures are strong and the mind is awake. Its like a massage for your organs, bones and joints. Its low impact movements are safe, effective, and fun. Regulating the breath, the awareness and the energy produces robust health and vitality
We have many years of experience learning, practicing, and teaching these arts.

Our centuries old meditation lineage comes to us through Daoist Grand Master Mantak Chia. The journey begins with three equal legs to its tripod. Like cleaning your floor with water, soap and force, Daoism uses three practices to start the cleaning of your insides. Inner smile (water), six sounds (soap) and inner orbit meditation (force).
You start seated in a chair with some basic warm up exercises to loosen the hips and spine. Then the awareness and the smile are turned inward, feeling from organ to organ until feeling overflows. In time, with practice, stress transforms into useable energy and dark states of self slowly become enlightened with awareness and energy.
These practices are non-religious and can be practiced by anyone of any faith.
