Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Yoga Naga
Tai chi is a mind-body practice that involves a series of slow, flowing exercises that combine movement, meditation, and rhythmic breathing. Although it was initially developed as a martial art, it's commonly practiced as a form of "moving meditation." According to the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, tai chi's movements can help stimulate the flow of vital energy (also known as "chi") and, in turn, promote healing from a variety of health conditions.
Many practitioners of tai chi use this technique to enhance physical and mental health, as well as to improve posture, balance, flexibility, and strength. In addition, tai chi is said to boost mood, alleviate pain, strengthen the immune system, and improve heart health.
Our classes are open to all levels. If you are brand new to Tai Chi, we suggest attending a Tuesday 9am class. Monday -Tuesday 7pm class, or Sunday 10am, as your first class.

“This place is a must try if you have any ailments! Their holistic approach to wellness has truly helped me. I have a lot of pain that I get treated with Anisa through acupuncture and both she and Master Zi have helped teach me how to change my lifestyle in ways that has drastically reduced a lot of my issues. I can't express enough that even if you're skeptical but looking for a new approach to things, just give them a try!”
“I have been attending 3-4 classes a week for about three months now, and the difference is astounding. My legs are already stronger, my posture is better, and I feel better at managing day-to-day stress. Master Zi and the other instructors are awesome. There is truly an attitude of non-judgment that is crucial to a self-practice like tai chi. The community of other students is really encouraging. I've already recommended classes to several of my friends.”
“Master Zi is remarkable in his omniscience of martial techniques, true Indian yoga, Eastern and Western healing practices and philosophies. He is a remarkable and creative individual. The other teachers follow his example and are excellent and inspiring practitioners. ”
