We believe that all people deserve
to receive the healing benefits of T'ai Chi and Qi Gong, no matter what age, physical restriction, physical condition, ailments
or other situations that may make attending a regular community class difficult, or less than optimal.
To that goal, we have created and
developed several special T'ai Chi and Qi Gong programs for special populations which we provide on site at special services
centers or other specific locations, and have seen wonderful results. Students
report that they have been able to apply the principles and movements to their every day lives, and that lets us know that
we have indeed met our goal.
For seated practitioners, our program
creates upper body strength and flexibility as well as general relaxation, and provides a set of exercises that can be continued for life. To aid in learning and practicing, written handouts are distributed, and audio and video tapes are available for
home review. We encourage students and provide practice often enough in class so that they can practice at home. We encourage students to share specific needs, so that we can help each individual
achieve his or her own goals. After all, T'ai Chi and Qi Gong are inherently
flexible in their use, and we wish to give everyone the knowledge, experience and power to use them as needed, every day.
For those with other special needs,
such as those living with neurological disorders, visual impairments, physical conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes,
fibromyalgia, or other life altering situations, we design programs with reference to the specific challenges of the situation,
and have delivered these programs successfully for years.
