Our 2023 Tuesday Rejuvenating Qigong (pronounced “chee-gong”) Live-On-Zoom only classes are still open to all students, including Newbies, for registration. Drop-Ins are welcome anytime. We still have a few classes left in November and December. Our 2024 classes are now available for FULL Registration.
This 55 minute class will include a wide variety of Qigong forms: Health qigong forms that strengthen and stretch the body, mind and spirit; Healthy Organs qigong; Breathing meditations using abdominal breathing, reverse breathing, small and grand qi circulation; Toxic emotions and impurities release, and much more. We always start with a slow, flowing warm-up to calming music, after which you will follow the instructor in 2 or more Qigong forms. Every class is different!
First-time Drop-Ins On-Zoomare welcome anytime,throughout the year, for all our Qigong classes as no previous experience is necessary. These classes are perfect for Newbies as detailed instructions is always provided. Long-time students of our Qigong classes tell us they really appreciate the variety. As a first-timer, if you want to drop-in we request that you register online and pay your drop-in fees at least 12 hours in advance of the class.
What will we be practicing? Qigong for the current season, whether it be Autumn , Winter, Spring or Summer, will be explored. All the Qigong forms we practice combine to help train and strengthen the torso, condition the muscles, and increase physical stamina in a way that most other regimes do not. These exercises can help strengthen the hips, knees and ankles, and improve the flexibility of many parts of the body. They can help improve movement of the spine and increase energy through various breathing techniques. Those already in excellent physical conditioning will find Qigong a great add-in, while those who are wanting to heal from injury, illness, fatigue issues, and a multitude of health conditions, will find Qigong as an excellent stepping stone to better health.
Each week will be different. Since many people enjoy the Tuesday Qigong class, we make it easy for you to enjoy it twice a week. You can join us on Saturday mornings (either on Zoom or In-Person) for another dedicated 55 minute Qigong class, which is also different from Tuesday class. Many students tell us that they enjoy taking 2 classes each week. By registering for both Tuesday and Saturday classes you also get the option to sign up for the weekly Saturday Qigong videos that you can use during the week.
See below for a list of all the Qigong styles and forms we practice.

Whether On-Zoom or In-Person the registered student understands that the North Shore Tai Chi Spirit & Chinese Health Qigong organization has a strict no-video-of-the-Instructor or the Assistants without express written consent. Additionally, all students agree that any videos sent to them by the Instructor are for “your eyes only” and should never be shared with any other person or posted, in full or in part, on the Internet.
IN-PERSON COVID POLICIES (as of April 2022)
North Shore Tai-Chi Spirit & Chinese Health Qigong wants to create a safe place for indoor tai chi and qigong group practice. Many of our classes are both In-Person and On-Zoom at the same time.
In accordance with the Provincial Health Authority wearing a mask will be a personal choice at this time. However, we will continue to require that all In-Person students practice social distancing.
If a shut-down to all In-Person classes is mandated by the Provincial Health Authority, then all classes will continue on Zoom. No credit will be given to students unless they do not have adequate access to the Internet.
We request that all Zoom Students to do their best to be on Zoom at least 5 minutes before the start of the class.
All Zoom Students must attend with their Video in the “on” position. We are required to take attendance and this must be done visually each and every class.
We prefer that all Zoom Students keep their video in the “on” position throughout the class. The Instructor needs to see how each student is performing in order to provide the most accurate instructions.
Some Zoom classes are recorded. Only students who unmute themselves (on purpose or accidentally) might be recorded.
We ask that all Tai Chi students find a way, if possible, to show their entire torso so that the Instructor can best view each student’s progress.
IN-PERSON OPTIONS FOR ZOOM
Anyone signing up for In-Person classes will always have the option to be on Zoom where that option is available at that location. Some classes do not have the Zoom option.
Any In-Person registration means that you are guaranteed a spot in the class. When and if the need arises: if you are not feeling well , if you are out-of-town, or if you are running late; On-Zoom is an option for you.
