We each begin where we are, and go forward from there...
"T'ai Chi for Every Body, Every Day"

Our Goals and Our Students' Goals

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.
