For NEW Students, here’s a short list of all available classes that will be open to you starting January 2023.

With Chinese Health Qigong classes you can literally join in anytime. The classes are easy to follow as the Instructor will provide a lot of detail. Try us out with a drop-in!

If you want to start learning Tai Chi, we recommend that you try to sign up as close to the beginning of every new session. This is especially important for a Newbie (someone who has never learned tai chi or someone who hasn’t taken a tai chi class in many years). Since many of our tai chi classes will be on-going from the September-December session, we have limited Tai Chi only options for the January – March 2023 set of classes. More tai chi options will open up in April, 2023.

Important information for New Students:

  • Space is limited for all In-Person classes so register early to secure your spot.
  • Wearing a mask In-Person is optional.
  • Tuesday and Saturday Health and Medical Qigong classes are available to start anytime.
