Taiji and Qigong Classes

Taiji and Qigong have both been proven to have a beneficial effect on our health and well-being. Unfortunately, due to the Covid 19 pandemic all of our classes are cancelled until further notice. Fortunately, we have our online classes to continue our vocation.

In these Taiji and Qigong classes you have the opportunity to learn a number of Taiji forms as well as Qigong.  There is no pressure to learn, no competition, just relaxation.  You learn at your own pace, for your own benefit.

The benefits of Taiji

In an analysis, done in the USA, researchers studied the effect that  regular attendance at Taiji classes had on people.  Their study was to measure the impact that the Taiji had on chronic illnesses and health issues such as hypertension, ME, etc.

What they discovered was that regular Taiji classes had a beneficial effect on things like flexibility, balance, co-ordination, stress levels, pain reduction, anxiety, depression and the health of the heart.

To see their findings, see the JAMA Network (originally The Archives of Internal Medicine)
